Here Comes "The Sun"

OK, the expression might be hackneyed, but the debut of the new daily newspaper today is a momentous occasion. In the hierarchy of difficult undertakings, starting a daily newspaper in a major market ranks far ahead of opening a vegetarian restaurant in rural Texas and only slightly behind establishing an independent nation in South Asia, so get to your local newsstand and pick up a copy or, better yet, get a subscription for only $2.50 a week here. Today's issue contains a probing interview with Mayor Bloomberg, an obituary of Justice Byron White by Glenn "InstaPundit" Reynolds, and a comprehensive preview of tomorrow's 2nd Circuit argument over New York state's Prohibition-era law requiring all liquor entering the state to be imported by licensed wholesalers. Not too shabby.
