Wednesday, I started reading a commentary in The Roanoke Times. But I stopped in confusion after the first few sentences. “What the . . . ”, I thought. “This is Cal Thomas’ drivel on the left side of the page.”
I have depended on The Times to place his nonsense, as well as George Will’s incomprehensible sermons, along the right margin where I know to ignore them. Now here was Thomas where Leonard Pitts should be and where Maureen Dowd was before The Times became so timid.
It’s hard enough for many of us to keep up with the changing customs and mores these days without The Times adding to our burden. So it is helpful when placement on the page somewhat indicates position on the political spectrum. Please don’t stop this practice.
You could just remember the accountant’s rule and do the opposite: Credits (progressive thought) on the left; Debits (conservative absence of thought) on the right.
