The Plain Dealer is the main newspaper in the Cleveland, Ohio area. My parents have been subscribing to it for as long as I can remember, and for the past few years, I've been reading it almost every day.

I really like the length and quality of the newspaper. This isn't some small, 10 page paper. It's actually pretty long, and has great quality color photos and graphics. It's very aesthetically pleasing. They use a lot of charts and graphs to keep things interesting, and a nice, good sized font. The paper quality is pretty good too.

The sports section is easily my favorite. There is great coverage of all the Cleveland ports teams, and even some good coverage of local high school teams. The sports columnists aren't the best, but they just hired one of the better sports writers around, Terry Pluto, and thus the quality should be improving. The in-depth sports stories and daily sports columns are probably my favorite part of the paper. They're the best way to keep up with my favorite teams.

Other sections include national news, local news, and arts and life, along with some weekly sections like food and travel. Besides the sports section, I like to read the comics daily, and do the included Suduku puzzle, too. All of the sections are worth reading, although I do skip over a couple of the same columnists every time. I feel that they are too negative, and just want to cause controversy.

I can recommend The Plain Dealer as a solid newspaper. It is the best in the Cleveland area, and for only $0.42 a copy for subscribers, and $0.50 a copy from the newsstand, it is definitely worth the money.
