Advice to the Sun-Times: Get a right-wing Mark Brown . . .

. . . to offset the real one, whose competence is top-rate, as are his left-wing creds.

Have a look at this list of his recent columns.

He’s good, no doubt. But what if there were a counter point to, ah, spark debate?

Sun-Times is heading for new ownership with the promise (right?) of independence. The new owners would be fools not to respect that, of course. So why not a bit of seasoning to the daily mix that has provided the place to go for local reporting, namely a non-Mark Brown who lays as heavily as he but into issues dear to the right?

Chi Trib’s editorial page has long provided that for its readers, not to mention the Royko successor John Kass, appearing regularly on its Page Two, its sole columnist to provide the ah-so experience for those on the right.

There could be one of those in S-T, yes. The conservative and libertarian woods are full of them. Somebody Chicago, of course, with not a Coastal bone in his or her body. Like Mark Brown, except different. The right man or woman for the right-wing job, yes.
