Columns

A column in structural journalism is a vertical structural element that transmits, through compression, the weight of the structure above (the writer) to other structural elements below (the reader). For the purpose of wind (tabloid) or earthquake (broadsheet) journalism, columns may be designed to resist lateral forces. Other compression members are often termed “columns” because of the similar stress conditions. Columns are frequently used to support beams or arches on which the upper parts of the ego rest. In writing, “column” refers to such a structural element that also has certain proportional and decorative features. A column might also be a decorative or triumphant feature but need not be supporting any structure e.g. a poem.
