Breaking news: Newsrack response!

This just in to our e-mailbox:

Jack –

Thank you for pointing out that one of our racks was interfering with pedestrian traffic on the sidewalk at 24th and Fremont. It is certainly our goal to be a good neighbor and we appreciate knowing when there are opportunities to provide better service to our readers. As you can imagine, it is sometimes challenging to balance the needs of folks looking for a convenient place to pick up a copy of the Portland Tribune while respecting the wishes of people who may not want to have one of our boxes in their neighborhood. Unfortunately, not everyone is comfortable communicating readily and we frequently have racks disappear if we don’t fasten them to a nearby inanimate object. And, of course, there are probably a few folks who would toss one of our boxes into the nearest river or dumpster out of protest or just for the sheer fun of it!

We have taken care of the 2 racks that you pointed out to us. Please let me know if there is any way that we can better serve you.

That's awesome! Good work, Jack - on both the research and getting some of the problems addressed.

The change on the corner is not very dramatic. But at least someone is paying attention. More later.
