IS THIS WHAT IT HAS COME TO?

How exactly does a book review serve as an op/ed piece in the paper? Would they publish my review of Hellboy II as a Voice of the Day now? Where is the criteria for submissions? Judas Priest! No wonder people are forecasting the death of the daily newspaper. We want opinions of national, state and local interest not book reviews. Besides, it's a poor book review at that. If I wanted a synopsis I could read the book jacket. Is insight too much to ask?

You're right. Totally pathetic as Op-Ed. What on earth is going on with the N-L?
