Brett Favre's 4th quarter touchdown pass to beat the Kansas City Chiefs today was the 41st time in his career he's engineered a 4th quarter game-winning or tying comeback.
Kansas City’s Tony Gonzalez caught a pass early in the 1st quarter today against the New York Jets. The 9-time Pro Bowler has now caught a pass in 122 consecutive games. Going into this season, Gonzalez had caught more passes (820) and TD catches (66) than any other tight end in NFL history.

Today, the paper bends over backwards to argue that it’s fair and balanced. Managing Editor George Stanley cites some examples and then writes, “In these cases the press, in all its forms, is not leading public opinion but reflecting it.”
Sorry, but as a conservative, I have a hard time finding, with the lone exception of Patrick McIlheran, the Journal Sentinel reflecting my opinion.
The newspaper is flat-out liberal. Just meander over to the Editorial section and you’ll see the Journal Sentinel’s unsurprising endorsement of Barack Obama. Members of the Editorial Board each scored Obama and John McCain on various issues. Total score: Obama 386, McCain 272. Now there’s a shock.
