I am writing to express my appreciation for columnist Tolley Jones, but also for all your regular columnists. Facing what we all know are limited resources, you consistently present compelling journalism on your opinion page. The latest example is last week’s column from Ms. Jones, “Will there be time?”

Jones, like the compelling Joanna Buoniconti, always draws me into her life with her essays, making me feel that I really know her. What more could we ask of a writer? Her latest column was no exception. It took me from near tears over her personal loss to a commitment to action, heeding her call not to wait to “Say what you think.” Tolley, I think you’re terrific!
