Jan. 2, 1959: Matt Weinstock ‘Reader’s Choice’

L.A. Times, 2009

The old-school newspaper columnists were tough, writing six pieces a week. Six-day-a-week columnists like Matt Weinstock and Paul Coates took it easy by making their Saturday columns a roundup of readers’ letters. In those days, apparently, newspaper columnists received interesting letters. What a concept.  (Jim Murray did the same thing in his first years at The Times)..

Weinstock’s complete column is here at Archive.org.
