The Gleaner fit as ever at 180

THE EDITOR, Sir:

I have been wanting to write and congratulate The Gleaner on its 180th anniversary this year, and say that you have done an excellent job over the years I have been a reader. I hope you will keep it up for many more years.

At times I am very critical and feel that the high standard of The Gleaner has fallen off in recent years, but then I read the August 17, 2014 edition of The Sunday Gleaner and appreciate what a difficult job it is to keep up a very high standard day after day. There were many excellent stories and articles in most of the sections, and your reporters and contributors deserve high praise. The recent debate on the pros and cons of incentives for manufacturers is a good example.
