Most of my editorials for the San Francisco Examiner, San Francisco Chronicle and smaller regional newspapers have vanished into virtual air. So, unless you want to go to a major public library and induce premature dementia by scrolling through reels of microfiche (or is microfiche now extinct?), you can’t read them. However, two of them have recently appeared online via SF Gate. One I like a lot. They titled it “The Vatican Repents Catholic Anti-Semitism” (newspapers usually discard the title you submit and replace it with one they like better). Here it is:

The Vatican Repents Catholic Anti-Semitism (1998)

The other one, “White Supremacists and their War against Jews,” is OK, unless it turns out to be prophetic, which would automatically raise its status to “Prophetic.”
