Sept. 29 Sports Letters

Are you kidding me?

The Yankees sweep the Sox and win their division, and you put it on PAGE SIX of the sports section?

That is not journalism. Who is the sports editor, Jerry Remy?

Bridges’ cycling stories from Russia enjoyable

It is with eager anticipation that I reach for Saturday’s edition of the BDN. I have thoroughly enjoyed each of Levi Bridges’ articles chronicling his bicycle trip across Russia. As a recent traveler to Eastern Europe myself, I can identify with many of the observations he has made and I am vicariously enjoying every minute of his adventure.

Thank you for printing his writing. His pieces are exciting and his writing style is excellent!

I have saved each of Levi’s weekly updates because I hope to reread them often. I hope he writes a book — it would be an awesome read!
