Our view: Go out, make a difference

Editorial: A strategy disregarded by so many
“Never joke with the press,” American novelist Erica Jong once said. “Irony doesn’t translate into print.” The same could be said for comments on the internet and its myriad social media formats. It’s a sound philosophy, yet a strategy disregarded by so many.

Our Opinion: Bad idea to cut tourism marketing
