The Wall Street Journal published a cover story on August 29 painting a not-so-fair-and-balanced picture of the Vineyard Gazette and its role in the said “newspaper war” between the weekly and its competitor The Martha’s Vineyard Times. The article features a photo of the cover layout of the August 25 Tuesday edition of the Gazette. A story titled Please Excuse Us While We Have a Calf, and Other Wonders of the Annual Fair, positioned at the bottom left-hand corner of the spread, was written by me.
I suppose you could say this is my debut feature in The Wall Street Journal. Er, sort of.
