By way of introduction this week, here are a few words of introduction. I know that's redundant, but I can be redundant if I want to. It's my column. Hell, I can even use the word "redundant" twice in the same sentence if I want to. In any case, as I've mentioned before in these little prefaces, there are times in the journalistic field when one simply can't control all the variables. Between what's assigned, what comes in, what is printable and how much space each section has, there are just some times when you have to make sacrifices, whether it be cutting something you don't want to cut, or putting in some that you'd rather never saw the light of day. Of course, here at the News-Letter, we never take the latter option. It would compromise our principles.
