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.

"Everyone at the Phillies is saddened by the news of Stan's passing. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Gloria, his family and his Daily News colleagues. In the early '60s, Stan and his fellow writers made the Daily News sports section a 'must read' for young readers such as myself. Over the next 45 years, it was a pleasure to get to know him on a personal level. "His writing skills and talents allowed him to cover a variety of subjects including restaurant reviews, boxing and other sports, but I believe he always had a special place in his heart for baseball.

STAN HOCHMAN was a people person. Wrote about them. Cared about them. So it's not surprising the Brooklyn native ended up at the People Paper. Hochman's storied career at the  Daily News  began when he was hired to cover the Phillies on June 9, 1959. Over the next 55 years, he chronicled the town's most memorable sports events and athletes, including the collapse of the 1964 Phillies, Joe Frazier's loss in the "Thrilla in Manila," Villanova's NCAA title run, and the Sixers', Flyers' and Phillies' championships.

TONY CARR is as cool as they come. There isn't much flash or panache to the Roman Catholic junior, but if you need an important basket, rebound or pass, chances are you won't find safer hands.

A MAN who was on death row for years may now be at death's door. Mumia Abu-Jamal, the convicted killer of Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner, was taken to Schuylkill Medical Center in Pottsville early yesterday, according to Noelle Hanrahan, a spokeswoman for Prison Radio, an online media outlet that works with Abu-Jamal. Hanrahan told the Daily News from the hospital - not far from the State Correctional Institution at Mahanoy, where Abu-Jamal was incarcerated - that none of Abu-Jamal's family, including his brother, Keith Cook, were allowed into the intensive-care unit to see him. The hospital's staff also refused to disclose any information about his condition, citing a mandate from the state Department of Corrections, according to Hanrahan.

WILLIAM Scott Vare was a vote-stealer and a boodler. It seemed unlikely that his bid for a U.S. Senate seat would win the endorsement of any of Philadelphia's five daily newspapers. So he started his own. The International News Service announced its March 31, 1925, birth this way: "The first edition of the ' Philadelphia Daily News ,' a pictorial tabloid paper, made its appearance on the streets here at noon. A forty page paper was the initial offering of the Philadelphia Tabloid Publishing Company, publishers of the paper.

DOES CHARLES Ramsey want to be Philadelphia's police commissioner for life? In all likelihood, if he values his sanity, the answer is no. But there appears to be a chance that Ramsey might not exit stage left along with Mayor Nutter next January. Most of the city's six Democratic mayoral candidates have expressed an interest - publicly, anyway - in having Ramsey continue to run the Philadelphia Police Department. Perceived front-runners Lynne Abraham, Jim Kenney and Anthony Hardy Williams said the decision would be Ramsey's to make.
