Dear Editor:

I'm sure the Reader editors had good reasons that I know nothing about, but your redesign of the newspaper is a step backward, to put it mildly. I love Hot Type and Neighborhood News, and was appalled to see how you've made those columns much less readable and attractive.

I'm no design expert, but I know what I like, and the smaller headlines and multiple jumps make the columns very difficult to follow. In particular, I can't imagine why you changed Hot Type, which was clean as it was, laid out on one page. Well, maybe I can imagine, since I notice the column for the first time has been squeezed to accommodate ads.

Admit your mistake and change it back.

Deborah Mihm
