Pepper… and Salt Off Op-Ed Page

imageThe New York Times notes that the long-running Pepper... and Salt at the Wall Street Journal is back off the editorial page. This follows a 2007 return. The feature, which has appeared since 1950 and was instigated by the editor Charles Preston, has decamped to the leisure and arts section. Unlike most pieces of this type, it's interesting to note that the paper's angle here seems to be that the move may presage a more significant investment by the paper in a cartooning voice, or that it could even mean a shift in tone away from that feature's gentle nudging of the excesses and follies of One Percent America.
