A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.
Monday, October 11, 2004 A tale of two editorials:The New York Times has a lukewarm editorial on Saturday's historic election in Afghanistan.
As I read the piece, I couldn't help but be reminded of the Timeseditorial on the Venezuelan referendum which called on those who complained of obvious, widespreadfraud to simply shut up.
The Times is always more pessimistic when anything good comes of what President Bush has done.
