Coast cover a disappointment 

A wrap-around ad for beer cheapens the newspaper

I am writing in regards to the cover of the latest issue of The Coast (October 1, 2009). While I understand the financial pressures of running a print publication in this day and age, and the siren song of any extra advertising dollars that can be found, the cover of this week's Coast was just too much.

A wrap-around ad for beer (no matter how beloved by some) cheapens the newspaper that Haligonians have come to love. It is gauche, unnecessary and, furthermore, detracts from the one truly pure editorial space. I will be deeply saddened if this practice continues.—Jen Bond, Halifax
