Chandler's Legacy

I loved this quote in AP's obit on Otis Chandler, discussing his early efforts to expand the paper:
The paper then was considered parochial and partisan, a mouth-piece for conservative political causes. Almost immediately, Chandler set out to make the paper one of the country's best. He moved it toward the political center ....
The little joke: A conservative paper can't be great, but a "center" paper can. The big joke: The LATimes is a "center" paper.
