Another opportunity for diversity at the Roanoke Times

The imminent departure of Roanoke Times New River Valley Editorial writer Gerry Davies offers yet another opportunity to the Roanoke Times to broaden its staff's intellectual diversity. Having failed twice with new hires in the past six months to add a conservative or even moderate voice to its editorial staff, the RT continues to display an ideological inflexibility that ill-serves its readership. True knowledge comes from many and diverse voices examining issues together.

Or maybe the thought of looking across that editorial meeting room and seeing someone who disagrees with you is just too much, Tommy. You could always make them use a separate drinking fountain or something.
