Re your Dept. of Media article “Waste Not, Want Not” (3/11) by Erik Wemple: Heck, I tried to keep the Olney Gazette from being delivered to my home for years with no success, and finally gave up in frustration. Now, I’m cheering on our neighbors in Virginia who are having more luck with the Examiner.

What a waste of time, money, and energy it is to shuck tons of unwanted newspaper onto people’s front yards (not to mention the number of trees it destroys). I hope the Gazette will also get smart soon and start an opt-out option. I’ll be among the first to sign up.
