Some readers may have expressed displeasure when the BND reduced page size to cut paper stock cost. I am unaware of any reader complaints of the more recent cost reduction at BND by now using thinner paper stock.
In fact, I am actually finding on these many rainy mornings that this thinner stock dries faster and maintains an adequate amount of wet strength as compared to the previous heavier stock. It meets my satisfaction, but of course I am not the type to complain.
