JOURNALISM is an art. But it parades its words as a science at times. We in the news business take printed words and give them to what we hope is an eager public wanting facts. We try to do that in an interesting way without being sensationalistic. When the news is something completely new, like the recent SARS epidemic, we give as much information as possible and as many viewpoints. I learned this from Daily News editor Zack Stalberg and former editorial page editor Richard Aregood.

Staff writer Bob Warner and the Daily News should be ashamed of themselves for the article on June 21, about Joseph F. Hoffman Jr. Hoffman, who is a son of a Democratic ward leader, threw out "more than twice as many tickets as anybody else" in a six-year period. Does the Daily News commend Hoffman on his excessive productivity? No. Does the Daily News give credit to Hoffman for saving the city at least another person's salary and benefits costs for that six-year period?

Richard Aregood, whose take-no-prisoners editorials helped define the Daily News for two decades, is leaving the paper to take a job with The Star-Ledger of Newark, N.J. Aregood's decision to leave the Daily News was prompted in part by disagreements with editor Zachary Stalberg over the mission of the editorial and opinion pages, as well as cutbacks in his department. During his years on the Daily News, Aregood won journalism's top awards for editorial writing, including the Pulitzer Prize in 1985.

The Daily News loves to fight for the little guy. Well, score one for the Daily News and two of its fearless reporters. Barbara Laker and Wendy Ruderman won the Pulitzer Prize for investigative journalism Monday for a series of stories that exposed a rogue police narcotics squad. Kudos, too, to Inquirer cartoonist Tony Auth, a Pulitzer finalist for his drawings "expressing consistently fearless positions on national and local issues. " The awards once again affirm the important role that vibrant newspapers play - even in tough times - not just here in the Cradle of Liberty, but across America.

Attorney and former mayoral candidate Charles W. Bowser has filed suit against the Daily News and Daily News associate editor Don Williamson, charging that he was the victim of false and defamatory statements in a column written by Williamson. In a suit filed in Common Pleas Court, Bowser accused Williamson of describing him as a black bigot and of making other disparaging remarks in a column about last summer's Urban Journalism Workshop for minority high school students, sponsored by the Daily News and the Dow Jones Newspaper Fund.

THE Daily News had the Phillies making the playoffs on the Monday before the season ended, and we know how that turned out. On Nov. 1, six days before the election, your headline said, "All over but the voting. " Headlines like these are more hurtful than helpful. Perhaps the third time you're inclined to predict the future, you'll bite your tongues and think how you might have blown it for us twice before. Stan Gibell Philadelphia

I remember when there were nine daily newspapers in New York City? Many Philadelphians have never forgotten the deceased Bulletin's slogan: In Philadelphia, Nearly Everybody Reads The Bulletin. Newspapers are dying. In this contemporary era, television has been the grotesque murderer of newspapers and magazines. Today, pay-for-TV-cable has been an ugly motive for not reading newspapers. Newspapers are in my blood. I read newspapers voraciously. In the past golden age of newspapers, it was cranky typewriters, inexpensive copy paper, rewritemen receiving stories from reporters over old-time telephones.

NOW THAT Philadelphia has already invested more than a half-BILLION dollars in stadia for "important" sports, the Daily News decides to take a position against the funding of a soccer-specific stadium in Chester? Why shouldn't soccer fans be able to watch their sport in an appropriate stadium? Is it that the money will be spent and earned outside the city? Or that your readers know nothing about the sport? Here's hoping the Legislature isn't listening. Peg Manning Eastsound, WA I don't think Barack Obama has much of a chance at winning the presidency because of his Muslim-sounding name.

WHEN AARON Rogers' little brother, Tremaine, was murdered as they played basketball outside their Overbrook house in 2013, his world was broken. "My brother is all that I had," he told the Daily News . "Ninety percent of me is gone now. " This week, someone took the rest of him. A gunman shot Aaron, 20, in the face about 6 p.m. Wednesday outside Vincent's Pizza at 65th Street near Lansdowne Avenue, police said. He died 24 hours later at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania - the city's 16th homicide victim of the new year.

WILL BUNCH informs us ("Free to be - and not be - Charlie"), that he and his colleagues at the Daily News disapprove of the crude humor in Charlie Hebdo , and so will not print the cartoons that led to mass murder in Paris. A month ago, there was perhaps a place for Mr. Bunch's nuanced editorial judgments about what is, and what is not, proper. Now, however, the cartoons are at the heart of the biggest news story in the world and you are a newspaper. How can you not publish them?

U SHER IS MAKING things official with longtime girlfriend, business partner and - three cheers! - older woman Grace Miguel . Miguel, 44, was spotted with a major rock on her ring finger on New Year's Eve, when Usher, 36, performed in Miami, and at Sunday's Golden Globes awards show. The couple hasn't confirmed. But when you know, you know.   NBC-ya later Two-and-a-half years after her tearful on-air goodbye to "Today," Ann Curry appears to be flying the peacock coop for reals.

In yesterday's column , I wrote about how  Nicki Minaj was caught cuddling up with North Philly rapper Meek Mill after Friday's Wale  concert at the TLA. The couple has been teasing a relationship for some time, with Mill guesting on two songs on Minaj's new album, "The Pinkprint," and throwing out the line "Baddest bitch in the game wearing my chain, I'm ready," on his new track, "The Get Back (Freestyle). " But a tipster let me know that the relationship was not just a tease.

JOE O'DOWD, a crack Daily News police reporter, was relaxing at his rental house in Brigantine, N.J., in the summer of 1987 when there came a heavy knock on the door. It was a Brigantine cop with a message from Joe's office telling him to get back to Philly to cover a development in the notorious Gary Heidnik murder case. Apparently, the office didn't have a number for Joe's summer place, so it had to track him through the local cops. Of course, Joe hightailed it back to Philly to check out the case of the man who kidnapped, tortured and raped six women he held prisoner in his North Philadelphia "House of Horrors," killing two. Joseph Donald O'Dowd, considered one of the best of a legendary contingent of reporters who covered the cops for the Daily News, the Inquirer and the Bulletin in the days before cellphones and the Internet, died Wednesday of cancer.

ISSUE | JOE-PA LEGACY Keeping score isn't what counts here The outrage shown by Penn State alumni over the supposedly unfair treatment of Joe Paterno indicates that their priorities are out of line ("Paterno dispute leaves a growing rift," Dec. 28). Paterno was a successful football coach, no more and no less. It was demonstrated that he - along with other higher-ups at the university - failed to take necessary steps to stop now-convicted predator Jerry Sandusky. It sickens me to think that many in the Penn State community seem to care more about Paterno's win total than about Sandusky's young victims.

BY NOW, getting crowned the Sportsperson of the Year by the Daily News is just another notch on the belt of Mo'ne Davis' baseball pants. That's just how the last 5 months have gone for the 13-year-old baseball phenom who dazzled Little Leaguers on the mound, gained local and national attention for being a girl playing with the boys and inspired many of her peers to follow in her footsteps. From the baseball diamonds in Williamsport - where she became the first girl to earn a win, throwing a shutout - her story was followed around the world.

MIKE TROUT'S ascension from promising prospect to multitalented major league All-Star to the game's greatest current player took all of about 12 months. And the Millville Meteor's meteoric rise happened nearly 2 1/2 years ago. But baseball's award voters and the public relations machine that was The Official Retirement of Derek Jeter Throughout All of Major League Baseball meant Trout apparently had to wait his turn for validation. All Trout did in his first two full seasons was hit .324 with a 976 OPS, hit 57 home runs, steal 82 bases and score 238 runs.
