Why no mention?
To the Editor:
Front-page headlines for Sunday, Aug. 26, in the Orlando Sentinel mention the violence in Chicago over the weekend. As for the Northwest Herald, there is no mention. How come a newspaper that is published roughly 1,000 miles away from Chicago mentions the violence epidemic the city is facing, yet a suburban newspaper from the city in question fails to report it?
Are we so desensitized about the violence that it is no longer news, yet the mild drought that we cannot change still is? Are we all so isolated in this bubble outside Chicago called McHenry County, living our comparatively privileged lives, that we don’t think it’s a big problem?
