Re: Joe Guzzardi`s Column: "New LA Times Strategy: Taunt Readers; Urge Them to Leave Town"

At the University of Kansas, where I was a journalism student in the mid-1990s, an instructor arranged for a group lunch with an executive from the Times-Mirror Corporation, then the publisher of the LA Times.

I recall the honcho waxing victorious about "all the black and brown faces" he sees when he`s in the Times` newsroom, and how happy he is that affirmative action has made it all possible.

Even then, as a young man without a racist bone in my body, I sensed the unfairness of this, and the hypocrisy, coming from a fifty-something rich, established white male. 

Hey! What about us 20-something white guys? Are we chopped liver?

Yes, apparently.
