Your Local Paper

Does the website for your local paper feature today a big photo of some unknown model who had her big break on some TV show, relegating any mention of the Democratic convention to a link in a side column?

My local paper doesn't: the website has a big photo of Obama and Biden.

Even by local standards, that's the more important news. For as much as Travis County is said to be a blue county in a sea of red, the Austin American Statesman sure does craft its coverage to that sea of red. I predict they'll endorse John McCain, come endorsement time. Or they'll bow out of making an endorsement at all, with some foolish argument that didn't keep them from endorsing primary candidates (and they endorsed McCain, then, too, remember).
