      Thumbs Up to Elissa Papirno

      THUMBS UP to Hartford Courant associate editor and reader representative Elissa Papirno for a Dec. 3, 2000, column in which she examines recent errors by Courant writer Amy Pagnozzi regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In her piece, entitled "Pagnozzi on The Palestinians," Papirno reminds readers that "opinion writing, like any writing in the newspaper, must rest on an accurate depiction of reality, and there [Pagnozzi's] columns fell short."
