To the Editors: 
Kudos to the entire staff for a superb first issue (September 13)! As a Bowdoin graduate, I appreciated the peek inside the College (the “Take Care” editorial, “Make the Global Local,”  “Talk of the Quad,” and “The Class of 2017”). As a Brunswick resident, I liked the local angle (Eveningstar Cinema and Jen’s Place). Other articles covered nice territory, from a well-deserved rap on Congress to an effective mix of cultural commentary, student profiles and sport highlights. Finally, as a professional writer, I appreciated the uniformly high quality of writing. Keep up the great work! People do still read newspapers. At least this old Polar Bear does.
