The Local Life Feature
Good afternoon, obituary readers.
Unlike many major newspapers (and most smaller ones), The Washington Post writes obituaries for major public figures as well as obituaries for people who led far-more private lives in the Washington area.
On any given day, we have obituaries for military leaders, movie stars, Nobel laureates, NIH secretaries and Wheaton church members. It's an eclectic, egalitarian mix. And a demanding one, given our small team of reporters.
One of our other features is called "A Local Life," which has traditionally run on Sundays and is a feature story on a Washingtonian of interest.
Now that we are writing more feature pieces on locals on any given day, we would like reader feedback on whether "A Local Life" has outlived its purpose. Does this regular feature appeal to you? If so, why? If not, why?
Do you have any other questions or comments? Please let us know how in the space below, or feel free to e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Meanwhile, as always, thank you for reading.
