Herald Adds Some Balance To Columist Roster

The Miami Herald has introduced two additions to columnist roles. The Herald, noting something me and other conservatives have complained about for years, realized that their roster of columnists wasn't exactly the most ideologically diverse. That's putting it nicely.

They are Jackie Bueno Sousa and Glenn Garvin. Garvin has already written one column, slamming the ACLU for their opposition to the removal of Vamos A Cuba. He brings a libertarian slant to many of his TV reviews, and this will no doubt be reflected in his opinion pieces. Good.

Sousa I'm not really familiar with. Based on the Herald article, she has a lot of experience and from what I was able to dig up online, she holds some strong opinions that may or may not always please conservatives (kind of like Myriam Marquez, whom I like). That's also good.

Here are some recent Sousa pieces:

- Abolish the N word
- School Board of Fools
- Miami Wish List

No doubt the Herald is responding to criticism about the lack of ideological balance. Give them credit for not just standing there and ignoring the obvious. Of course, they aren't exactly in a position where they can just do nothing and expect to survive much longer.

I think you meant roll not roles.

Actually I'm referring to "roles" as a duty, but I can see where "roll" could also apply.
