Why I like reading the Advocate: The Advocate doesn’t get sidetracked by peripheral news, such as wars, famines and government intrigue.

Instead, your paper focuses on the important issues. I’m referring to the Aug. 13 edition that featured this headline at the top of the front page, “DA’s brother flashes badge at officer.”

Keep up the hard-hitting reporting, and you may count on me be to a faithful reader.
