An invitation to my 'Ask the editor' live chat at 2 p.m. today

At 2 p.m. today on the home page of, I'll be hosting my (more or less) monthly live chat, an opportunity to hear from readers and to answer questions.  I hope you'll join me.

 Since I began the chats in January, I've found them exhilarating -- if a little stressful, at times.  I try to get to as many questions and comments as possible in the hour allotted, but so far it's not been possible to recognize everyone.

The topics are entirely up to you but here are some possibilities: Defense attorney Joel Daniels' request for a mistrial in the Corasanti hit-and-run manslaughter case; the increasing number of newspapers going to paid subscriptions for online content; how The News arrives at its editorial opinions, including political endorsements; how our city desk decides whether to write an obituary about a particular person; and, of course, sports columnist Jerry Sullivan's hip replacement and whether he and I are related.  (I think this has come up at every chat so far.)

It should be fun.  See you at 2.
