What is the explanation for deciding not to indent the first paragraph of articles that appear in the Metro section, while continuing to do so in the front, Style and Sports sections? It looks odd. To anyone versed in good grammar, it is erroneous. Moreover, to those of us who look to The Post for consistency throughout the paper, it makes no sense.

Don’t take your readers for granted. Just tell us why you felt compelled to make this unnecessary change.
