Chron opinion section: Where "olds" is new again

The Chronicle opinion section is rarely timely.

It’s such a problem that it really stopped being worth regular comment a while back.

But every once in a while, it’s kind of fun to take a look at what the editors of that page are passing off as “new” to their declining subscriber base.

Today, the worst examples are a Joe Scarborough column that appeared in the Washington Post a week ago, and a George Weigel column that appeared in the LA Times last Wednesday.

They are interesting columns, and maybe some Chronicle print subscribers actually depend on the newspaper to reprint such “olds.”

For some of us, though, it’s just a sign that James Howard Gibbons and crew really are behind the times (and the Post, for that matter).
