We read your column in the July issue of The Coastal Star (“With anger everywhere, violence not a surprise”) and were saddened, but not surprised, to learn of the challenges you and your staff face in the execution of your duties at the paper.
We are from the Annapolis area and we mourn the senseless loss of the five dedicated staff members at the Capital Gazette.
In the unfortunate era in which we now live, a free press is more vital than ever.
We wanted to let you and your team know how much we appreciate and value the work that you do. We support you without question.
Matt Gaffney and Ned Kesmodel
