While Thinking about the Brilliant Minds and Writers...

...responsible for The Tennessean's editorial page, I came across this gem, which evidently is regarded at the paper of record in Nashville as a summary of one side of the argument over American policy in Iraq: "One side, focusing on fear, will say if we don't follow the president's leadership, we're all going to die."

We're all going to die? If The Tennessean can find a single person in a responsible position who has said that, I will become a subscriber. That's the biggest sacrifice I can think of to offer.

The sad fact for The Tennessean's editorial writers is that when they argue against a straw man, they have only managed to find an even playing field.
