Although the Sunday Chronicle opinion page remains far short of the ideal state, there was some progress this weekend.
In addition to fresh house editorials and the usual lefty rants from Clay Robison and Cragg Hines, the section actually had two original op-eds with a local twist, one by Sen. John Cornyn (R) and one by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D) and David Cole.
Of course, the bulk of the material was stale. Jeffrey Rosen’s op-ed ran on July 21 in the New York Times. John Yoo’s op-ed ran on July 21 in the Washington Post. John P. Avlon’s op-ed ran on July 19 in the New York Sun. David Barash’s op-ed ran on July 18 in the LA Times. Charles Krauthammer’s column ran on
July 22 in the Washington Post. Paul Krugman’s column ran on July 22 in the New York Times. Karl Inderfurth’s op-ed ran on July 11 in the LA Times.
That’s still a lot more stale content than one might expect of editorial pages in their ideal state.
