Condensed version

In the Washington Post, Anne Applebaum, in an unfortunately titled op-ed (“Listen to Germany”) considering the heated debate on Iraq, sharply points out some potentially troubling rumblings coming from the Continental powerhouse, and notes that context will be important in discerning Germany’s response to action in Iraq.

The Detroit News notices the drag inflicted on the auto industry by President Bush’s decision last year to impose tariffs on some imported steel, and calls for a repeal.

The Detroit Free Press is ready to end the NASA investigation and declare the loss of Columbia was caused by ... a lack of funding.

The Lima News thinks the shuttle disaster - and the limited budget room for NASA - may be the impetus to begin commercial exploration of space.

The Toledo Blade - one of America’s worst newspapers - cites consistent calls for Saddam’s removal by Bush advisers long before George W. became president as the impetus behind American efforts to disarm Iraq (so much for a “rush to war”), and claims 9/11 was just “an excuse” for Bush to give the “hawks” free rein.
