The Star Tribune Shows Its True Colors

For those who have yet to realize that the Minneapolis Star Tribune is overtly liberal, take a look at some of the candidates they have endorsed in recent editorials.

1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th District Congressional Races - Four Democrats

5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th District Congressional Races - Three Democrats and their token Republican, moderate Jim Ramstad

Attorney General - Democrat

It is pretty clear, where they stand isn't it?

Update - 10/30/06:

The Star Tribune has continued its leftist agenda by endorsing Democrats Amy Klobuchar (for Senator), Mike Hatch (for governor), and Kathy Saltzman (for State Senate District 56). And if that isn't enough, they have decided that the war in Iraq needs a new strategy--shocking, I know.

Mohler on Books and Libraries

Al Mohler has a good blog entry about how, "the books we collect, display, and read tell the story about us."

He writes, "When I think of my closest friends, I realize that I am most at home with them in their libraries, and they are most at home with me in mine. Why? Because the books invite and represent the kind of conversation and sharing of heart, soul, and mind that drew us together in the first place."

As one who finds it difficult to part with any book that I've read, I understand Mohler's view on books and reading. He is on the mark when he says, "The books we collect, display, and read tell the story about us."

Ashcroft on the 9/11 Commission

Former Attorney General of the United States has lambasted the 9/11 Commission by saying the commission hearings, "were not so much about discovering the truth as they were about assessing blame and grandstanding."

Of course he is and will be heavily criticized for stating the truth about the matter. The 9/11 Commission came about primarily to blame someone--specifically George W. Bush. The commission was the kind of thing that we postmodern Americans are good at--seemingly good gestures with a hidden and subversive agenda that turn goodwill into a political statement.

The 9/11 Commission was a joke and I'm glad that someone from the Bush Administration has finally said so.
