reflect that this sort of thing is still in the experimental stages. Some of it works; some of it doesn't. But I do like this gamble on the editorial page. Unlike the dull pontificating in most newspapers, the Republic offers its views as a list. This is much more engaging than what I see in my daily paper, The News & Observer.
