I’m surprised more letters to The Chronicle have not been published regarding the latest disappearance of longtime features from its pages. Could the letters be filling up boxes or circular containers in the mail room? 

I’ve been reading The Chronicle for 75 years. Now I’m missing the word search, a crossword puzzle, Dear Abby … All the “news” you want to know so you subscribe to The Chronicle. 

To the 10-year-old student from Rochester, good for you for being able to write a well thought out and sensible, intelligent letter admitting you read The Chronicle, follow the characters with almost baited breath and enjoy the many projects on the back page full of kids’ stuff. Show your teacher! Sounds like a great classroom project to me. 

OK Chronicle “important people,” here’s your chance to make lots of folks happy and maybe bring back or add some subscribers. Bring back all the missing from the Chronicle pages.

P.S. Oh yes, also missing “The Weekender.”
