[LETTERS to the editor]Congrats on expanding, but be careful

I wish to congratulate you on your efforts in producing a larger and more comprehensive newspaper. The Republic of Korea is a treasure trove of news and controversy, and you should have no trouble finding interesting stories to fill those extra pages.
I think the foreign and diplomatic community will also appreciate greater and more in-depth coverage of their particular issues and concerns.
However, perhaps a note of caution is in order that with a larger news hole comes the need for greater scrutiny and workload. In just random glances at the paper over the past few days I came across two errors.
First on the “Diplomatic Pouch” on Monday was a writeup on a video art celebration of 150 years of diplomatic ties between France and Korea.
Isn’t that more like 120 years, as I’ve been reading elsewhere in the popular media?
And just today, in “Koreas discuss fielding unified teams” (page 2, April 5) about bidding for the 2014 Winter Games, the story failed to mention the name of candidate No. 7 for the 2014 Winter Games: Salzburg, Austria. (Though it does say there are seven teams!)
Your editing team perhaps assumed too quickly that this wire story was on the ball.
As long as you beef up your attention to meet the new demands, your new look should shine.
