Larry Burchall: Sad to see the Sun go, especially the way that it has.
Bryant Trew: Over its lifespan, the Bermuda Sun has provided superb news coverage while also providing an alternative platform for social commentary.
Jonathan Starling: At the moment, and I think the demise of the Sun is symbolic of it, journalism, as an institution, appears to be in freefall in Bermuda today.
In our last Viewpoint, Carla Zuill asked residents how they feel that the Bermuda Sun will no longer be in existence.
Shawnette Somner: With the Bermuda Sun having just celebrated 50 years of life in the community, the demise of the paper now reflects the sadness of death to me.

Elaine Murray: The Sun has told the story of political battles, scandals; deaths and destruction; and sometimes that only filled just one day’s worth of newsprint.
Christopher Famous: For most of us, we have grown up knowing we could always rely on the Bermuda Sun to give us a fair and balanced view of the current happenings in our island home.
Phillip Ingham: You can have Disco 40 and the forty thieves, a man half human and half machine running at 60 miles an hour was everything to this little munchkin.
Jeremy Deacon: I'm glad Cup Match is just around the corner, not because it’s four days off or the fact that I am intending to spend those four days sleeping in front of the TV.
Tony Brannon: I cannot stand by and watch the government implode in front of our eyes without saying something.

Elaine Murray: If a bank calls you asking about an American consultant attempting to open a local account, no matter that he has a work permit, a red flag should have gone up and you should have asked a few questions.
Christopher Famous: Now the OBA has spoken loud and clear; the message to Bermudians is that our voice is not worthy of hearing.
Michael Weeks: In recent weeks, we have witnessed the OBA exhibit behaviours that clearly indicate which Bermuda they do not represent: Mr and Mrs Hardworking, Grassroots, Everyday Bermudian.
Makai Dickerson: Let it be known that I stated here publicly, that Wednesday’s opinion piece by Christopher Famous is a travesty. It is an insult and poison to the mind of all rightful thinking people.
Jonathan Starling: Despite the apparent wishful thinking (or perhaps delirium?) of some, the ‘JetGate’ scandal is far from becoming ‘DeadGate’.
