Column hits the mark1

Once again David Hohendorf’s publisher’s column hits the mark (October/Downtown).

I am glad that you are continuing to use your newsmagazine for political and social commentary that is very important to our area. It would be easier for you to shy away; rather you continue to take risks to point out our local ills. We are grateful.

I had heard from a respected area executive that It was not long ago that Jews were not even allowed to own property in Bloomfield Hills and were on a quota system for admission to some area private schools. Those words are stunning but remind us of how far we have come…and how far we have yet to go.

We too have felt racism and bias in our family, and we have learned to not be astonished.

Keep it up, please.

DOWNTOWN: Unrivaled journalism worthy of reader support

A decade ago we assembled a small but experienced and passionate group of publishing professionals all committed to producing an independent newsmagazine befitting the Birmingham/Bloomfield area that, as we like to say, has long defined the best of Oakland County. 

 

We provide a quality monthly news product unrivaled in this part of Oakland. For most in the local communities, we have arrived at your doorstep at no charge and we would like to keep it that way, so your support is important.

 

Check out our publisher’s letter to the community here.
