Issue: "Veggie Mania," Dec. 12, 1998

But it's never, of course, only the editorial page of a newspaper or a magazine that tells you what that journal's soul is like. The selection and treatment of the news and features reveal and betray line by line and paragraph by paragraph what is important and what deserves repeated and deeper investigation. That's why two newspapers in a town-or even five-would still be better.

But if there can only be one paper, better to keep two editorial pages as long as we can. And please, don't ever link them with a hyphen.
