Perhaps the biggest error of all is pretending that this collection of trivia and profile of a local band have anything to do with the proper role and function of a "public editor." Get real, Liz. You're sinking to greater depths even than your precedessors.

On August 2, the Times-News published a letter to the editor bashing syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer, calling him, among other derogatory names "a partisan hack" because he presumed to criticize Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama.

The letter bore a headline applied by the editor which read "Krauthammer unprincipaled."

The highly regarded Krauthammer, who is generally considered a conservative, is a member of the Washington Post Writers' Group.

On August 4, I wrote a letter to the editor praising Krauthammer for his column published in the Times-News that day as follows: "Once again Charles Krauthammer has demonstrated that he's the most intelligent and insightful pundit around.(Ecology argument on oil won’t hold, August 4, 2006).His elegant writing style, his uncommon grasp and marshalling of elusive and pertinent facts into a synergistic whole leading to an inescapable and irrefutable conclusion all contribute to making him the nation's most credible political scribe. He's neither liberal nor conservative. Just a first rate thinker and writer who always hits the nail squarely on the head."

Guess what? The "fair and balanced" Times-News refused to publish my letter.
