’Nuff Said
“But the headline, whatever apologies may be made for its bad manners and its offenses against good taste, remains one of the clearest illustrations of the temper of a newspaper—of its sensational character or of a restrained desire to indicate the nature of the news beneath it without exploiting it.”

  —Lucy Maynard Solomon, journalism educator, 1923

Editorial Comment: As my mother always said, there’s no accounting for taste.

TODAY'S WORD ON JOURNALISM is a free “service” sent to the 1,800 or so misguided subscribers around the planet. If you have recovered from whatever led you to subscribe and don’t want it anymore, send “unsubscribe” to Or if you want to afflict someone else, send me the email address and watch the fun begin. (Disclaimer: I just quote ’em, I don’t necessarily endorse ’em. But all contain at least a kernel of insight. Don’t shoot the messenger.)
