Someone Else's Thought For The Day

Apparently the local socialist rag, the Minneapolis STAR-TRIBUNE, has chosen to downplay the seriousness of a certain recent assault on a police officer.

Corey Miltimore has wondered how the STAR-TRIBUNE would have reported certain other events in history:

It got me to thinking what headlines the current Star Tribune editors would have chosen had they applied the same standards to various historical events. Here are some that came to mind:

• October 24, 1929 – “Stocks dip”
• September 1, 1939 – “Germany expresses frustration with Poland”
• December 7, 1941 – “Japanese visit Honolulu”
• November 22, 1963 – “President Kennedy takes ill in Dallas”
• July 16, 1969 – “Armstrong, Aldrin, and Collins take trip”

I won't even bother to cruise through the STAR-TRIBUNE's website let alone actually buy a copy anymore.

While driving down Lake Street with a passenger in the back of my cab someone pulled up beside me and offered to give me a free newspaper.

I said no.

He said it was the Star-Tribune.

I said, "HELL NO!"

My passenger, a young lady going to the airport, laughed.
