U.S. 1’s November 8 article on Rider’s contentious plan to “divest” Westminster Choir College was well-written and one of the most comprehensive stories to appear so far in local media.

There remain many unanswered questions raised by this proposal and many “big-picture” concerns. Ideally, they would get discussed thoroughly in public in the possibly short time remaining before they become moot. Uniquely among local media, U.S. 1 has often demonstrated it has the space and inclination to develop full-blown takeouts on local issues with multiple ramifications. I’d love to see U.S. 1 do a follow-up because I know you’d do it with intelligence and balance.
