“Newspapers should show both sides of a point of view.”

He wrote this long ago. I transcribed it into my Book of Horrors as an obvious absurdity.

How was I to know my student was not verbally inept, but prescient?

There is only one situation in which this student’s pronouncement can be aptly applied.

At the risk of seeming political (which, heaven knows, only those who know me might accuse me of!), I would have to say that since last night, that situation seems to have arrived.

How else to cover Mitt Romney’s campaign?
