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.

SUCH IS the state of this year's Republican race for the presidential nomination that the most impressive claim from any candidate has been "I'm not angry. " That was uttered by Ohio Gov. John Kasich during a recent meeting with this editorial board. That utterance alone is not why we are endorsing him, although it almost would have been enough, given the hate-filled clown convention that is the Republican race. Kasich is the grown-up at the table: In his second term as governor of Ohio, he's a former member of Congress who, during his nine-term career, served on the Armed Services Committee and the House Budget Committee.

FLETCHER COX isn't at NovaCare this week for a voluntary minicamp; he and running back Darren Sproles, who has a family commitment, the Eagles said, are the only two players absent, as new coach Doug Pederson and new defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz set up their systems. But ultimately, Cox will be here, de facto general manager Howie Roseman assured reporters. "Fletcher Cox is going to be on our team. He's going to be on our team in October," Roseman said. "We are not trading Fletcher Cox. " Cox, who made his first Pro Bowl after last season, is entering the option year of his 2012 rookie contract, which calls for him to be paid $7.799 million this year.

A former police officer was charged Wednesday for his role in an alleged theft scandal seven years ago at the Philadelphia Police Department's Firearms Identification Unit, according to court records. Anthony Magsam's arrest on charges of theft, receiving stolen property, and obstruction of administrative law came one week after his former commander, Lt. Vincent J. Testa, committed suicide prior to a scheduled meeting with prosecutors about the case. Magsam, 35, was released from custody Wednesday following an arraignment.

Dick Jerardi: 'Cats have horses to win Do I like Villanova as much as I liked California Chrome in the 2014 Kentucky Derby or Smarty Jones in the 2004 Preakness? No, but I really do like the Wildcats to beat Oklahoma Saturday and either North Carolina or Syracuse on Monday for the national championship. Predictions are all about the team (or horse) you like and the caliber of competition. Those two horses were really good and laid over the competition. Villanova is really good and really hot, but the Wildcats do not lay over the competition.

ON THE grandest stages in the area, Lamar Stevens was flat-out dominant for Roman Catholic this season. The 6-7 senior forward and Penn State signee possesses a combination of speed, athleticism and power that helped the Cahillites repeat a threepeat, again claiming PIAA Class AAAA gold along with the AAAA city title and the coveted Catholic League championship. In those three contests, Stevens, who transferred in this season from the Haverford School, averaged 20 points, 9.6 rebounds and shot 55 percent (22-for-40)

I SHOULD PREFACE this communication by informing you I've never written a letter to any media member in my 59 years. I feel compelled to at this time after reading Will Bunch's columns of the past several weeks in the Daily News . I've been a regular reader of the Daily News since the mid-1970s. The column about what the next president's move would be after receiving a 3 a.m. call was especially interesting. After Bunch spent six paragraphs denigrating Donald Trump for his lack of knowledge regarding foreign affairs and referring to the Republican Party as a "know-nothing" party, he eventually transitioned to the current president and started his analysis with a statement indicating he'd won the Nobel Prize too early in 2009 and thus has to earn it every day. Regardless of that opinion, what did this president do?
