WSJ quote of the day

I cant (and dont want to) comment on the recent news of DJ’s proposed acquisition by News Corp.  But, in today’s Op Ed section of the WSJ…i enjoyed the quote and thought I would share.

On January 2, 1951, William Grimes wrote a memorable editorial, “A Newspaper’s Philosophy,” that summed up our [WSJ] worldview this way:

“On our editorial page we make no pretense of walking down the middle of the road. Our comments and interpretations are made from a definite point of view. We believe in the individual, in his wisdom and his decency. We oppose all infringements on individual rights, whether they stem from attempts at private monopoly, labor union monopoly or from an overgrowing government. People will say we are conservative or even reactionary. We are not much interested in labels but if we were to choose one, we would say we are radical.”
