Joe McQuaid's Publisher's Notebook: From Coos to the Sea, we've got NH covered
"From Coos to the Sea'' is a venerable Union Leader slogan that I still like. It's what we aim to do with every issue and with the UnionLeader.com breaking news site. We cover news statewide. (And just so Colebrook's John Harrigan won't yell at me, it's not pronounced "Coos like a baby coos.'' It's "Co-oss.'')
I hate it when a store runs out of our papers. But I love a good question, and that one prompted our circulation folks to show us a list of where the paper is available. It is, indeed, available from Coos to the sea. It is for sale at more than 1,500 outlets statewide. We have put the list on a map that you can access at www.UnionLeader.com/locator.
First and foremost, they help pay the bills so that we can provide the news and information content for you, from Coos to the sea.
Second, while advertisers pay a pretty penny for a note, they get a great spot for their message.
Here was a reader's online comment, which is a riff on a current TV ad.
"When you pay too much for cable, you become a town administrator. When you become a town administrator, you get naked. When you get naked, you invite a DirectTV salesman into your home to get naked. When you invite a DirectTV salesman into your home to get naked, he cries to the police. When he cries to the police, you get an arrest warrant. Don't get an arrest warrant. Get Xfinity."
