Those who know me best know that I have a profound respect for the late Chief Justice Earl Warren. His world-changing statement, “We conclude that in the field of public education the doctrine of “‘separate but equal’ has no place” still sends tingles up my spine, and a powerful dissent in which he wrote, “The censor’s sword pierces deeply into the heart of free expression,” absolutely fires me up. But there is one Warren quote — about newspapers, no less — that took me a while to warm up to: “I always turn to the sports pages first, which record people’s accomplishments. The front page has nothing but man’s failures.”
