A link for the old heads

Posted By on Tue, Jan 30, 2007 at 12:52 PM

Some of you will remember when Walker Lundy, now retired from newspapering, led the Arkansas Gazette for a time during the last five years of Gannett ownership. To the diminishing group who might remember or care, here's Lundy's piece for the Charlotte Observer (he's apparently going to be a "community columnist") that says newspapers don't raise enough hell aboout important local and national issues any more. True enough. But I can't help but recall when Lundy wanted to put the story his wife had heard about the Nieman-Marcus $250 cookie recipe on Page One. Fortunately, food editor Harriet Aldridge informed him it was an urban myth. Whatever you do, though, don't blame the Spandex-clad cheerleaders on Lundy. That was my call.
