Redesigned LA Times....Op/Ed page
Does anyone else have a problem with the Op/Ed
page, now called something else, with its huge
fonts, lengthier editorials by the unnamed editorial
board writers and fewer letters (which I always read).

It's unreadable. What do you do when you
can't stand to read the two page you looked forward
to reading....

1. I thought Michael Kinsley would be an improvement
but he has turned out to be a major fuck up.

It's another case of print anything BUT the news that matters.

2. I really have to agree.
I had high hopes for a more progressive page, but
Chait, Gerlenter, Stein aside from rightwinghacks
like Boot are discouraging at best.

I have to give them credit for trying new stuff
though.

Let's start over again.

3. LA Times told my mom
at the time that she dropped her subscription..."we aren't going to be so liberal any more".

My mom said, "Too bad."

4. I hate it...this was the section I always went to first.
I keep trying to convince my wife we need to cancel our subscription to this rag but she likes doing the crosswords and that new "numbers game" they have added.
