Changes to the opinion page

If you haven’t noticed, we’re tinkering a bit with the opinion pages. A week or so ago, we tweaked the design, putting more letters to the editor on the front page of the opinion section, providing more visibility for local opinions.

Now, we’re starting to expand the op-ed section and you’ll find a full slate of op-ed columnists under the “Other Voices” section. In the past, we have occasionally run some nationally syndicated columnists but you can expect to see more in the future, including some of the nation’s best known writers and thinkers.

Today’s columns include Thomas Friedman of The New York Times, who see potential for the GOP to gain points on energy policy, The Times’ Joe Nocera on “mortgage fraud fraud,” Jonathan Gurwitz of the San Antonio News-Express on a belated honor bestowed on a World War II hero, and Rex Smith of the Albany Times Union in New York on the proposal to ban large sugar sodas in New York City.

We’d love to hear what you think.

Best,

Matt
