I think it was one of the greatest newspaper wars of our time — the battle between two Little Rock, Ark., newspapers, the Arkansas Gazette and the Arkansas Democrat.
I’m not sure the story I’m about to tell supports that contention, but I’ll tell it anyway. Just for the fun of it.
It was my first journalist job off campus. I was hired at the Gazette to take down scores and stats and write brief high school football game summaries.
