It's hard to read

Re '˜Graham's' letter in the Star, I am in total agreement.

Why do we need certain articles printed on a dull grey background. I counted 11 today in the Star and sports supplement, as well as Thought for the Day and half of the TV listings, and wonder why this is necessary. I’m sure it doesn’t make the paper look anymore attractive, it just makes it more difficult for some of us ‘elders’ to read.
