Condensed version

The Washington Post kicks off Thursday with a strong censure of Hans Blix for attempting to stretch out and reinterpret Security Council intentions.

In the LA Times, Bennett Ramberg says its high time to cry uncle, let North Korea have nukes if it wants them, and treat Kim like a superpower leader (no, I’m not kidding).

The Lima News notes it was the market - not regulation, as demanded by “consumer advocates” - which overhauled the leadership and limited the power of media monster AOL Time Warner.

On the sports side, the Cincinnati Post offers new Bengals coach Marvin Lewis its best wishes, but admits that owner Mike Brown’s total lack of football acumen will keep the Bengals near the bottom, whoever is coach.

Finally, the Toledo Blade - one of America’s worst newspapers - compares the various world crises (Iraq, North Korea, Venezuela, oil prices) to “cats out on limbs,” yet the only cat the Blade seems intent on saving is Saddam Hussein!
