It was a great pleasure to read Sunday's edition of The Sun. For the first time in a while, the pleasure of reading your newspaper didn't stem solely from the sports section but from the editorial pages as well.
Though well written, articulate, and amusing, the usual Sun editorial page articles come stamped with the Maryland Democratic Party's seal of approval.
Editorials are structured around the author's opinion, and readers are well aware of this. However, editorials gain credibility and respect if facts and figures are brought to bear before the author states his or her claim.
I applaud opinion editor Andy Green for understanding that in order to gain journalistic credibility, editorials must have a balance of opinions on the issues of the day.
