Along the Tracks

Condensed version

In the Washington Post, Ellen Goodman sounds the annual “warning bell” on the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision and all those barbarians, er, pro-lifers wishing to limit the absolute right to an abortion.

On a more promising note, also in The Post the editors take that last step on the process toward the disarmament in Iraq: If the U.N. does not follow its own resolutions, the U.S. would be right to act alone or in conjunction with a “coalition of the willing.”

The Toledo Blade - one of America’s worst newspapers - misrepresents last year’s “vote” on drilling in ANWAR, then says using parliamentary procedures (which is what the Dems did last year) to get an outcome favored by Republicans would be wrong!

The Cleveland Plain Dealer calls for a return to the sensible middle on the abortion debate.

Finally, the Detroit News points out that, in the midst of criticism of SUVs and fuel economy standards, the average vehicle is more affordable today than it has been in two decades - so don’t ruin things for the consumer.
