Another stupid H-T editorial
Over on the forum, I took the H-T to task for a stupid editorial on a group of police officers who call themselves God's Posse.
Well, the H-T managed to top the inanity of that editorial the next day.
I have said before that the H-T should eliminate the "quick views on the news" section because there is not enough room for good argumentation. This editorial demonstrates why I was right.
It is silly to editorialize about the fact that the city Parks and Recreation department head is wearing a suit in a picture on the city Web site. It is even more silly to criticize the wearing of a suit. The headline about a "dress code" is absolutely asinine.
How exactly is a suit not keeping with the image of the Parks Department? A department head has a lot of management responsibilities, dealing with elected officials, public relations and so forth. Of course an administrator is going to be wearing a suit.
With the new layout that focuses on local news, the H-T seems to be struggling to find good content for the paper. The staff editorials (which were not exactly awe-inspiring to begin with) are suffering the most. The H-T needs to put some more effort into these editorials before they embarrass themselves further.
