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.

Storytelling. That's what the ASNE-APME-APPM News Leadership Conference, just concluded here in Philadelphia, was all about. It's the third year these three respected orgs - the American Society of News Editors (formed in 1922); the Associated Press Media Editors (formed at a bar in 1930; yearly meetings since 1933); and the Associated Press Photo Managers (2001) - have thrown a meeting together. Philadelphia Media Network, parent company of the Inquirer, Daily News, and Philly.com, was among the cosponsors.

Les Bowen: Can't be sure Wentz 'ready' I have a feeling there is a reason the Eagles haven't started a rookie quarterback in their opener since Davey O'Brien in 1939. And that reason is not that it's a brilliant new concept nobody ever considered before. I also have a feeling that the team made that trade with the Vikings, dispatching Sam Bradford to Minnesota, because the Eagles were getting back a first-round pick and a fourth-rounder that can be better if the Vikings are really good.

James Austin, 80, of Sewell, the labor-union leader of an estimated 1,000 pressmen at the Inquirer, the Daily News, and other newspapers in the region from 1994 to 1997, died of complications from sepsis Tuesday, Aug. 23, at his home. "Jim was a very outstanding guy, firm but fair," said Joseph Inemer, president of Local 16-N of the Graphic Communications Conference-International Brotherhood of Teamsters, who succeeded Mr. Austin as the union's chief. Mr. Austin was a pressman at the Bulletin and, after it closed in January 1982, at the Daily News.

WILL BUNCH'S "5 ways Philly can extinguish its political dumpster fire" made some pretty fair points, but seemed to absolve the so-called Fourth Estate - a/k/a the Daily News and its competitors - of any responsibility for said "dumpster fire. " A paper that boasts in its own advertisements of sending politicians running cannot be allowed to gloss over its own failings, as well. The Daily News appears to have written off local campaign coverage years ago. Good luck getting your message out as a state House or Senate candidate - unless you have a criminal history or are an eccentric, in which case you will get a front-page feature ridiculing you and your aspirations.

A prosecutor in Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane's looming criminal trial told a judge Tuesday that Kane's request to tell a jury about her unearthing of offensive emails would mire jurors in "a distraction, a red herring. " But Kane's lawyers said she needed the option of telling the jury about pornographic emails swapped by members of her agency before she took office. Kane is to go on trial Aug. 8 on charges of perjury, official oppression, and other offenses. Prosecutors say she lied about leaking confidential documents to the Daily News to plant a June 2014 story to embarrass a political foe, former state prosecutor Frank Fina.

Gale hit the Daily News jackpot for the third time Sunday when Odubel Herrera homered to lead off the sixth. It was our Home Run Payoff inning and the blast was worth $1,000 for Gale, who is 88. It was the third time Gale won a thousand bucks from us. She also won in 2010 at the age of 82 and 2013 at 85. "I get the Daily News every day and fill out the coupon all the time," she said.

This summer, I've been reading past columns I've written for both the Sunday Inquirer and the Daily News. I began as a columnist at the latter in 2001 and for the next 10 years, my work ran every Thursday. In 2007 I began writing separately for the Sunday Inquirer and for four years, I had the unique honor of writing for both newspapers. In 2011, I scaled back to just the Inquirer. By my count, I wrote a total of 489 columns for the Daily News and this is my 555th column for the Inquirer.
