I liked and admired Jim Lehrer (“Jim Lehrer of the ‘MacNeil-Lehrer Report’ dies at 85,” Jan. 23). He believed news is a public good, not a commodity. He was always completely on the level in reporting, interviewing, and moderating debates. His life was a gift that strengthened our democracy.

We will remember Jim Lehrer always and forever. Jim Lehrer, RIP.
