According to some of my editors, In Theory is one of the most widely read pieces each week in the La Cañada Valley Sun, Glendale News-Press and Burbank Leader. This year marks half a decade that In Theory has run.
So, this week, I've decided to give you an inside look into how In Theory works.
In Theory debuted in the Glendale News-Press and now defunct Foothill Leader the weekend of Jan. 14, 2005. Its first question? "What do you think of the Glendale Unified School District giving students the day off Jan. 6 for Day of Epiphany, also known as Armenian Christmas?"
Among some of the first responders included Father Vazken Movsesian of St. Peter Armenian Church, now the leader of Glendale-based In His Shoes Ministry; Rabbi Jonathan Biatch, of Temple Sinai of Glendale who now serves as a rabbi of Temple Beth El in Madison, Wis.; Sharon Weisman, an atheist living in Glendale; and the Rev. Alice Parsons Zulli, founder of Beyond Loss, a bereavement ministry and grief support center at Glendale Adventist Medical Center.
