Our look is new, but we've still got an opinion on just about everything, and we know you do, too. That's why we're not making major changes to the layouts or functions of our pages. One difference to keep an eye out for: On Sundays the editorials and letters will be moving to the first section of the newspaper.

Editorials & Letters

The editorial page, the voice of The Sun, aims not to espouse one political viewpoint but to educate, inform and persuade our readers. But our readers don't always agree -- that's why we have the Letters to the Editor.

Opinion & Commentary

We strive for a healthy mix of contrasting views every day on the Opinion & Commentary page. These articles are primarily written by experts, authors and columnists from outside The Sun staff.

Kal's View

Our political cartoonist, Kevin 'KAL' Kallaugher, is no softy -- you can't be when caricature is your stock in trade. His opinions are very definitely his own; if we tried to tell him what to draw, we might end up in his next cartoon.


A new ticker

Our new business report gets to the heart of financial matters.We've put the markets update, local stocks and briefs together to give you a comprehensive look at the day's news.



New business ticker on Pages 2-3 More graphical markets report Easier to find commodity prices and interest rates More national and international business news Key indices featured prominently on front page.
