[#] A related local story

I'm somewhat stunned that the national news hasn't picked this up yet. It was a headline story in the local paper yesterday, and I thought it'd be on CNN and NBC by now.

There's also this editorial on the subject. I don't want to throw stones at local media, but forgive the, um, quality of the writing and try to ferret out the things they are trying to say.

The comments, as always, are open. I'm in for the discussion.

Results from the poll will be up later today.

UPDATED: read Tom Ascol's blog more often. It'll do ya good.
