    Justice and fair thinking exist in all segments of our country and at all levels.

    This article, while defending Rubashkin somewhat, furthers some of the terrible lies perpetuated against him by these very prosecutors. He was never convicted if most of these things.

    I like how it tries so hard to say the 27-year sentence can be justified in any number of ways, just not this way…c’mon they first list all the things he was accused of even though there’s evidence against those that things (like knowingly hiring illegals). But it’s nice the newspaper begrudgingly acknowledged that something is off here.

    May SMR be immediately released!

    What is the difference between Op-Ed columns and Editorials?

    The name “Op-Ed” is derived from “opposite the editorial page.” The Op-Ed pages feature opinion pieces written by outside contributors and The Times’s own team of columnists: David Brooks, Maureen Dowd, Thomas L. Friedman, Bob Herbert, Nicholas D. Kristof, Paul Krugman, Frank Rich and John Tierney.
    Editorials are written by individual New York Times editorial board members in consultation with their colleagues and editors and reflect the opinions of the diverse, 16-member Times editorial board. The editorial page editor answers directly to The Times’s publisher.

    To number 4, the word “op” does not refer to opposites it refers to the word “opinion”.

    Apology, I guess I am wrong. The original meaning is as you said. Though now it refers to “opinion”as well.
