Wall Street Journal Piece Gets Accolade From Abroad
Jim Prevor’s Perishable Pundit, July 12, 2007
Our piece Pundit Makes WSJ Op-Ed Page was marred by a technical difficulty that, for half the day, kept people from accessing the link to the full article.
The piece dealt with editorial integrity, the necessity for personal responsibility and a willingness to sacrifice to maintain one’s integrity — lessons for any industry.
We continued to receive nice notes on the piece, including this one that made a great literary analogy:
I just read your article, The Roots of Editorial ‘Independence’ in The Wall Street Journal on the flight from Kuala Lumpur to Delhi.
Great piece! I kept thinking as I read it, of one line from the ancient “Book of the Samurai”:
“The Samurai willing to die is stronger than 10 opponents.”
