Washington Post : Bring the Business Section Back

I have been a avid reader of the Washington Post. I like the print version and my job even though online leaves me too busy to read the paper online. I get up before 6 a.m so that I can get a few minutes to read the A section, business, metro and Style in that order.

A few weeks ago ( maybe months ago) , when the Washington Post moved the business section to the A section I considered it a promotion, Not anymore. I loved to see the share prices specially of companies that I liked like Marriott, GE etc. I loved to see the price of the dollar to the rupee. I liked the national and international news coverage and the features.

Sadly all that is missing. I think the Washington Post should have considered an increase in price and not giving up on the Business Section.

I am thinking of a Facebook group to influence the Post to bring the Business Section back. IF you are game please comment here.

IF my efforts do not succeed I may defect to the Washington Busines Journal who lead by Alex orfinger seem to be doing innovative campaigns like the one in this picture. Kudos to them. Kristina Bouweiri reads both and likes both . Maybe there is a case to be made for good local business coverage in the Washington Business Journal. What do you think?

Now `Emirates (Dubai) Etihad (Abu Dhabi) Qatar Airways (In Doha, Qatar) have taken over these routes with their new aircraft and great service. From Washington DC, Emirates is an outlier, it flies in the morning at 10.55 from Washington Dulles Airport (IAD) and reaches Dubai at around 8.30 a.m. Other flights, Etihad, Qatar and flights with European stopovers take off after 9 p.m at night. I love this timing but it does cause a disagreement in my house. My wife prefers to fly Eithad due to the timings. My wife's viewpoint is that it is difficult to sleep on the Emirates flight since it starts in the morning. I enjoy the morning flight. My game plan is to sleep less for a few days to my Emirates flight. Once on the flig
