Along the Tracks

Condensed version

The Washington Post posits the important “morning after” questions raised by the Columbia disaster.

The Akron Beacon Journal appears guilty of its own headline, “Blinded by the Hype,” in an its-not-such-a-big-deal defense of high school basketball star LeBron James’ flouting of amateur eligibility rules.

The Cincinnati Post is highly critical of the Bush budget’s embrace of long-term deficits.

The Indianapolis Star is more sanguine, defending the deficits as the unavoidable result of recession and war.

The editors of the Toledo Blade notice - finally - that the Columbia crashed, and come out four-square against any “back-to-business” hopes expressed by NASA before a full investigation - setting up a false choice they can criticize.
