I always have appreciated the Inquirer and the writers who work hard researching & writing good articles. My only suggestion would be a more balanced approach to writing about sex abuse scandals which seem to be rampant across many pubic & private organizations, and religious institutions. However, Inquirer only seems to focus on the Catholic Church with front page coverage. Please also write articles on the millions of people the Catholic church assists with life saving care, food & support. Thank you!

Safe injection sites

Daily News and it’s journalists and there support of sites reflect predictable liberal emotion based journalism! Only because it’s Kensington the Mayor with Philly Media support try to ram sites down throats of taxpayers from Kensington! If this epidemic were at Rittenhouse Square I believe this approach would not be tolerated! What Kensington needs is the National Guard standing on every drug dealing corner. Why didn’t Mike Newell who’s family came from kensington buy his home here instead of Queen Village? So much for skin in the game! Afraid of hepatitis A? Stepping on thousands of syringes? This safe site approach is a disgrace. The Mayor is a disgrace for letting it get to this point! When all supporters move into Kensington and get a real feel of quality of life here then will accept there position, until then I will not!

Proud of our local paper

I’m so proud of the strides the Inquirer has made over the last year. Continuing their great reporting on important local issues is obviously essential but finally having a more streamlined app to read the news on the go is almost better. Keep up the good work!
