The Washington Post

Front-page news every day


The Post showed a box score of coronaviru­s infections and deaths during the pandemic but hasn’t done so for shooting deaths and injuries.

Shooting deaths and injuries are a serious national problem. So serious, in fact, that the total number of deaths deserves to be on Page 1 every day. There are many creative ways to show the number of deaths. Some relevant totals would be the number of mass shootings so far this year and this month and how many deaths and injuries for this year and this month from mass shootings. Then separate totals for shootings that aren’t mass shootings.

In a small box, perhaps 2 inches square, on Page 1, every day. Every day!
