Condensed version

In the Washington Post, Gertrude Himmelfarb takes the occasion of Presidents’ Day to call for a return to teaching American history - and through it, building patriotism.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer tells the Bush administration not to leave North Korea on the backburner, but admits the policy options are rather limited.

The Akron Beacon Journal fears (correctly, I’m sure) Statehouse Republicans will attempt to “balance” (while not quite making up the gap) Ohio’s budget on the backs of colleges and universities.

The Detroit News wants Osama’s head - NOW!

Finally, the Toledo Blade - one of America’s worst newspapers - proudly trumpets Alan Greenspan’s (rather minor) hesitance toward the Bush tax and accuses the administration of threatening his job!
