EVERY SUNDAY I REVIEW THE MOST COVETED EDITORIAL PAGES OF THE WEEK BY OPINION-MAKERS AS WELL AS THE MOST WIDELY-READ, THE SUNDAY “CROSSROADS” SECTION OF THE MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL. I WILL KEEP TRACK OF THE CONSERVATIVE AND LIBERAL PIECES CONTRIBUTED BY NON-JOURNAL SENTINEL WRITERS AND KEEP A RUNNING SCORE THROUGHOUT THE YEAR.
It should also be noted that this exercise is a categorization. Most, if not all of these articles submitted to, or solicited by the Crossroads staff are well-written, thoughtful, and provocative. I enjoy reading them as I have every Sunday for as long as I can remember. This weekly compilation is an ideological scorecard, not a writing critique.
TODAY'S LIBERAL PIECES
Edie Brengel Radtke: Release full, unedited video
Is PP for real? Sadly, they believe their own garbage.
Walt Ferguson: New way to elect a governor
No. Let's keep the system we have.
John Patterson: No sense in relying on feudal capitalism
Government is our only economic solution? Please.
Michael Rosen: Milwaukee shouldn't squander its competitive advantage
A Crossroads, MJS favorite....the militant liberal, union apologist extraordinaire, Michael Rosen.
Michael Mathias: What's lacking in MPS governance debate: Leadership
I'll give Mathias this. Some of his ideas aren't bad. But he claims they will reduce property taxes. They won't.
And let's face it. He's a lib.
TODAY'S CONSERVATIVE PIECES
NEITHER LIBERAL NOR CONSERVATIVE
Henry R. Nothhaft: Patent 'reform' will stymie innovation
Some Republicans also support this legislation that small business says will kill them. A hair away from being dumped in the "L" column.
TODAY: Liberal-5, Conservative-0
YEAR TO DATE: Liberal-119, Conservative-89
KF NOTE: This week's Crossroads just may have been the most egregious example of how blatantly leftist this paper is. I'll have final thoughts on my year-long experiment later in the week.
