We forgot your comics and that's not funny

Speaking of comics, it would be great if the Register would expand the daily comics section and also go back to a full section of Sunday comics like you once had. Your limited selection of Sunday comics is pathetic and has been for quite some time. If you want to see examples of great weekday and Sunday comics sections, check out the Lorain Journal!

How can a newspaper "forget" to include an entire section of it's paper? The quality of the Sandusky Register has been declining for years now. The grammar in some of the articles look like they were written by a 5th grader. In fact I know a few teachers who use these articles to show their students what NOT to do when writing about something. Seems like the Registers staff has forgotten the Golden Rule (Who is it about? What happened? When did it take place? Where did it take place? Why did it happen?)of investigative reporting. Someone deserves a demotion, if not an outright dismissal, for forgetting to include the comics in today's paper. The Register is first in line to demand that other "public" officials be held accountable for their mistakes, now it's time for them to lead by example!

Rude- Mistakes happen. And I would disagree that our quality has been declining. I have been here for 14 years and we have a great staff of young reporters and solid visual and sports teams. Journalists are taught to write to a fifth-grade reading level in most instances as to not exclude any readers from understanding stories that may be full of jargon or more complex.

I thought the Golden Rule was "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." You are listing the five Ws.

One page missing from a newspaper on one day is not comparable to what some public officials, paid by taxpayers, have done and we have reported on. 

We realized our mistake, we posted a digital copy of the page here and we printed the page in today's paper.

Now the calls will come in to the paper with people complaining they had to spend twice the amount of time having to read two Dilberts, two Beetle Baileys and two Garfields, and that their horoscope did not happen as it said it would for Wednesday.

In the general scheme of things, there are many more things people should be getting upset about than a page missing from a local newspaper.

We do take it seriously when mistakes happen and the person(s) involved are aware of the mishap.

Now the witch hunt on the register begins.
Hey, at least they apologized, even if it was three days later.


Funny page was left out of today's (Wednesday) paper.
