TGIF Wild Card — 1/19/07

The Editorial Board will be producing its own blog in the near future. That’s one of the top goals emerging from the Editorial Board retreat at Rebecca Nappi’s home yesterday. The biggest sticking point was anonymity. Opinion Editor Doug Floyd wondered how we can require letter writers to sign their names and not individuals who will comment on Editorial Board blog posts. (I know that’s a theme near and dear to some of your hearts.) I simply said that online is a far different world than the dead-tree media. If you try to impose the same requirements, the blog will be dead before it gets off the ground. The argument carried the day. Stay tuned. And enjoy today’s Wild Card …
