‘This Planetary Moment’
To the editor:
In only a little over six months, the Provincetown Independent has managed to establish itself as an indispensable lifeline and anchor to this extended community we call the Outer Cape.
What makes this even more remarkable is that you have done so not just with the usual difficulties and obstacles of starting up any new business, and in the face of the decline of most local newspapers, but also in the midst of a global pandemic. The extraordinary range of excellent editors, reporters, and feature writers you have enlisted in this effort has lent new meaning to the term Local Journalism.
Please accept my small donation as a token of appreciation for the vital role you are playing in not just surviving but thriving during what Yo-Yo Ma called “this planetary moment.”
