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
Richard A. Meeusen: Many cities are selling their water too cheap
Some of us need to pay more for our water.
Eddee Daniel: Keep nature at County Grounds
There’s nothing wrong with green space, but must we always use the environment as a roadblock to progress?
TODAY’S CONSERVATIVE PIECES:
Christian Schneider: Employees' share? Yet it's borne by taxpayers
Bob Smith: Facts refute school choice critics
NEITHER LIBERAL NOR CONSERVATIVE
Pittsburgh's lesson for Milwaukee: Evolutions in the economy take time
Another View: What's needed is more good faith from MPS administration
Normally a piece written by the president of the MTEA would be dumped in the “L” column, but Dennis Oulahan spends a lot of paragraphs saying absolutely nothing.
TODAY: Liberal-2, Conservative-2
YEAR TO DATE: Liberal-41, Conservative-37
In other words, don't criticize me so harshly for my radical pro-abortion views.
Sorry, Mr. President. You are what you are, the most pro-abortion president ever elected, an enemy of the unborn.
As I post every Sunday, here are the top five most popular of my blog entries from the previous week:
1) How much does it cost to have a baby?
2) *BREAKING NEWS: JENNIFER FISCHER NAMED MOTHER OF THE YEAR*
3) Thinking of Steve Olson
4) What happens when you impose a smoking ban
5) It's not often the gang that couldn't shoot straight (The MJS Editorial Board) nails one...
In South Bend, the plaintiff in the famous U.S. Supreme Court case on abortion speaks out against the abortion president.
"Asked her opinion of The Most Rev. John D'Arcy, bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend, she said he needed to 'get up off his behind and do somethin' to prevent Obama from speaking at Sunday's commencement. And of Obama's travel plans, 'I hope he runs out of jet fuel,' she said."
