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.

THE BOYFRIEND of a woman found dead near 30th Street Station in February will remain behind bars in Delaware County, authorities said. Bhupinder Singh, 25, was sentenced Tuesday to four to 23 months in jail for violating his probation in a DUI case from 2010, said Emily Harris, a spokeswoman for the Delaware County District Attorney's Office. He's incarcerated at the George W. Hill Correctional Facility in Thornton, where he'd been detained since his extradition back to Delco on Feb. 27. Singh violated his probation earlier that month when he fled to his parents' house in Solon, Ohio, court documents show.

JOHN MORRISON'S lengthy obituary on Chuck Stone in Monday's Daily News said a lot, but there was one thing it did not say. It did not say Chuck Stone was the first black columnist at the Daily News . It didn't have to because he was so much more. Many readers' tributes to Chucker (that's what I usually called him) mentioned his hilarious and infuriating "And the Angels Sing" columns, "written" by letter writers and answered by Chucker. In those, the voices of bigotry, racial hatred and assorted animosities flowered, with Chucker in the role of Chance the Gardener - except Chucker would do more than watch.

NO MATTER what the future holds for Ja'Quan Newton, his high school basketball career will be the stuff of legend in Philadelphia. And please, no need for flourish or exaggeration. As resumes go, the 6-3, 185-pound Newton, a senior combo-guard for Ss. Neumann-Goretti High, has few rivals. Newton, our Player of the Year in conjunction with the Daily News All-City team, finished his career as the all-time leading scorer in Catholic League history (1,972), led the Saints to four consecutive league championships, four straight City titles and three PIAA Class AAA crowns.

IT WAS THE laugh that defined Jason Pennypacker. It embodied the essence and spirit of a man whose zest for life defied all constraints. It was a laugh that told the world that everything was right and fine, and that it was always sunny in Philadelphia. Frank Dougherty, former Daily News writer who was Jason's landlord for a time, employed his well-honed flair for description when he said Jason's laugh was like "naval guns booming across the water. " Actually, it was Frank's garden that took the brunt of that exuberance.

THE BIG nonnews yesterday was about old DNA. Did it prove that Michael Jackson was the father of 31-year-old Brandon Howard or was it merely a website publicity stunt? Don't know. Don't care. But according to TMZ.com and Alki David and his company, FilmOn.com, there's a 99.9 percent chance (for those of you bad at math that's a very good chance) that Brandon is Michael's illegitimate son with singer Miki Howard . Brandon (a/k/a B. Howard), however, was not at the news conference and says he had nothing to do with it.   Ho, Canada!

WHEN RICHARD Leek went to teach at Girard College, he found what many people spend their lives searching for: a fulfilling way to make a difference in others' lives. In this case, the others were students from single-parent and low-income homes, many desperate for the touch of a caring mentor to guide them into challenging lives. Rick, as he was known to family and friends, filled that role as both teacher and coach, not only stimulating young minds but giving his charges pride in their accomplishments.
