One of the reasons the Anchorage Daily News has reason for gratitude this Thanksgiving is survival. This year has been a rough passage, with no guarantees that we'd stay in business. There were days in August and September when many of us wondered if the newspaper would be around for October, let alone Thanksgiving.
We're still here. We're leaner, having had to say goodbye to many good friends and colleagues as the staff was cut. But we're still here, still publishing, and we aim to continue.
So we'd like to thank all of you who subscribe, read, comment, write, advertise and in other ways support us. We'd especially like to thank those of you who have stuck with us through thick, thin and those days on the bubble. And we thank those of you who have offered kind words and encouragement to carry on. That's sustenance.
We hope you're warm and well on this day, in good company of family and friends. Keep the candles burning, and keep in touch.
