The Random Pixels guest column

My good friend over at South Florida Lawyers addresses a point about the Miami Herald that's had me scratching my head for quite some time.

Take it away SFL!
Let me ask you something -- what is the point of the Herald's five-minute summary, or whatever it's called -- that occupies a half page yet provides no new content of any kind?

Are there really people out there who are unable to scan a newspaper like the Herald in five minutes, without having a pointless summary that attempts to replicate what the Herald looks like on the internet?

Seriously, the paper's thin enough without having repetitive filler that serves no purpose whatsoever.
We agree! Perhaps it's time to retire this useless feature.
