Re: "Porch it, please," (Forum, July 5):
J. Kevin Bischoff need never suffer with a wet newspaper again. Customers can and should call MediaOne and have a dry one delivered to replace a wet one. The carrier will be penalized on his/her paycheck every time a complaint is made. Customers may also request that their paper be porched daily.
Things have changed in recent years. Adults now are newspaper carriers. I happen to be a 57-year-old grandmother doing this to make ends meet because of the recession. Gas costs have risen and we are not reimbursed for mileage. Every time I stop my car to get out and porch a paper I'm getting 0 mpg.
