Right from the Start   


In your piece on the Examiner newspapers ("Home Free," April /May) you missed perhaps the most obvious angle: Doesn't it strike you as odd that in a city as left-wing as San Francisco, you have a right-wing paper like the Examiner? The day after the election, when every other paper carried front-page banner headlines about the Democratic Party taking back Congress, the Examiner buried that story inside in favor of a headline about our Republican governor winning reelection (which wasn't much of a surprise).
