The Times Eagle and the Quill

October 16, 2002

Re "The Eagle Has Landed," editorial, Oct. 13: The mighty bird hasn't landed, it has crashed. The new Times eagle looks more like a parrot. In fact, it looks worse than the old Times-Mirror corporate logo, and that was hideous. I can't imagine what inspires you to keep fooling around, trying to improve a sacred symbol of our Times.

I don't mean to diminish the commendable symbolism you ascribe to The Times' eagle masthead; however, please don't overlook the fact that the quill upon which the eagle perches is on top of the sword. That is indeed the most important quality a newspaper can symbolize: the pen is mightier than the sword.
