The Slice

Just wondering

Have you noticed that boilerplate wording down at the end of S-R editorial page editorials that had come from other papers?

You know. The thing about “This doesn't necessarily reflect the view of the editorial board.”

Well, how do you react to that?

A) Seems a tad weasel worded. B) Well, why not find something that DOES reflect the view of the editorial board? C) Don't care. But I still think it is wrong for anonymous online commenters to get to rip letters to the editor written by people who sign their names. And I feel that way even though I regard many who write letters to the S-R as certifiable. D) It always sounds to me like that “Seinfeld” thing, “Not that there's anything wrong with that.” E) Other.
