The MSD review

Thanks Daniel for your deeply insightful reporting on the Wilmington Municipal Service District issue. Without fact-filled news pieces such as this one, many of us would have very little idea as to what a MSD actually is or what it entails or even what it's boundaries would be.

Wilmingtonian's are just filled with pride knowing that their news reporters aren't just going to just give us the same old fact-filled news reports of times gone by. Instead, they are bravely breaking new ground by supplying the public with news pieces that say almost nothing. It takes real courage to tell the public that it's about time they went and actually found out what's new all on their own.

Keep up the good work!
