    This is an improvement?

    It didn't take very long for Jonah to disgrace your proud paper by stooping to the lowest levels of name-calling rhetoric.

    In the second sentence of Jonah Goldberg's first column, he seems to label a large segment of Americans as "deranged moonbats."

    Jonah goes on to make equally absurd remarks regarding FDR, WW2, and the "Bush Doctrine" going so far as to imply that this Iraq war was "not chiefly about WMD"

    I have no problems with opinion pieces from the far right or the far left, or any other dimension of measure. However, I expect these opinions to be expressed with maturity, professionalism and with respect to the facts.

    I find it mind-boggling that the management of the times would move to make changes to include this kind of juvenile writing, and I find it difficult to justify contributing to the erosion of standards in journalism.

    I'm cancelling my subscription.
