Point/Counterpoint gets a makeover
Rife is a member of The Roanoke Times editorial board.
Two things occurred on Dec. 4. I ate an ample slice of triple chocolate ganache cake to celebrate my birthday, and we launched the Point/Counterpoint feature in Horizon. All these months later, I can recall with delicious satisfaction every morsel of that cake. Regrettably, I am less than enamored with the progress of Point/Counterpoint. My editorial board colleagues — Editorial Page Editor Christina Nuckols, Elizabeth Strother and Christian Trejbal — agree we need to change our creation to help it grow into more of what we envision.
Before I explain the changes, I’ll catch you up on what we’ve been doing the past few months.
