Blog News LXVII: Hurricane Sandy

The Party of Commons offers our condolences to the families of the deceased as a result of Hurricane Sandy which has caused many deaths over the past few days.  The storm is creating much havoc throughout the Northeastern U.S. and in the Caribbean islands, and has been one of the most severe storms ever to hit the United States. Particularly, hit hard are the states of New Jersey, New York and Connecticut, but several other states have been afflicted.  This is yet another reason why Global Warming/Climate Change should be prioritized as one of the Top 4 issues for the government to contend with (Nuclear Policy, the Afghanistan War and the Economy are the others).  Our prayers are with the entire East Coast for the speedy recovery of the affected states and people.

The Bizarre Detroit News Endorsement

Yes, I know, newspaper editorials are vastly overrated and deserve to be taken with the proverbial grain of salt, if given that much attention, but when I heard that the Detroit News endorsed Mitt Romney for president, I could not believe that a major paper would thrash the economic interests of its own city as convincingly as that, since Romney effectively told Detroit to go to Hell when the automobile industry was in trouble a few years ago.  Romney might be a son of Detroit, but he's no friend of Detroit.  If the News detests Obama that much, they could have endorsed Rocky Anderson or some other 3rd party or independent candidate.  A major newspaper endorsing someone other than a major party candidate for president, wouldn't that be a breath of fresh air for a change?
