The Globe and Mail

Public editor: Readers get action: bridge is back

Our readers mailbag has been bursting this week with questions about the changes to the new Globe Life section, an expanded section that includes Arts coverage. Some have asked where the comics went (to Sports with fewer strips). Others have asked about the movie listings, which will be in the Metro edition Fridays and Saturdays. But by far the biggest question has been "Where did my bridge column go?"

We heard from so many of you (more than 500) with impassioned pleas that you need bridge to start your day, to give your brain a challenge or just for the sport of it. And The Globe and Mail listened. Bridge is back today and will be in weekdays and Saturdays.

While I'm personally not a bridge player, I love the daily Sudoku and will also take a stab at the crosswords from time to time. I know how much puzzles can add to our enjoyment of the newspaper.
