Jim Dey's opinions belong on the editorial page or the op-ed page. Putting his pieces on news pages makes it difficult for readers to distinguish between his opinions and straight news.

He's entitled to his opinions, of course, but mixing in his takes on the news with the reporting of the news is a disservice to readers.

If his opinions must run on the news pages, they should be clearly labeled "opinion."
