Condensed version

Amid war talk, slow economy and the shuttle tragedy, the Washington Post offers some much needed perspective - “Cheer Up!”

The Cleveland Plain Dealer sees the Feb. 14 report by Hans Blix as the turning point in the U.N. debate from inspectors to force - and expects invasion shortly thereafter.

The Akron Beacon Journal has a pointed defense of judicial nominee Deborah Cook of Ohio, who was painted by Senate Democrats as a “shill for companies.”

After looking through the details, the Cincinnati Post thinks the president’s proposed tax cuts are a little too bold.

Finally, the Detroit Free Press rails against the new FBI order to count the number of mosques and Muslims inside each field office district in an effort to judge how its anti-terror assets are distributed - racial profiling, says the Freep.
