    I am a big fan of Bowdoin sports – and sports in general. Lately, however, it has occurred to me that the constant, daily “lead” from the Sun is the Bowdoin Scoreboard. It may well be the “most popular” or the “most hit” component of this e-publication. But this is still a college publication. I fear that our collective priorities might be slipping out of whack…or descending into the den of uber-competitive NESCAC athletics…not a pretty place at all. While I suspect that I am in a distinct minority on this one, I urge you to abandon the primary tenet of Journalism 101 and “bury the lead.” Post the Scoreboard regularly – daily even – but not in the top spot on the menu. Fans will find it. Others might find non-sports related stories that are more to their liking more quickly. For what it is worth…
