Fair and balanced
Today's 300-word lead editorial speaks to the obvious:
House Needs New Speaker Quickly
The Intelligencer editorial uses WV Republican Senator Shelley Moore Capito’s description of the mess, “chaotic,” as it’s starting point and ends imploring Congress to find a speaker quickly so that the “work of the American people can progress.” Unfortunately, while the editorial uses the word “Democratic,” the word that would best describe which party instigated the chaos, “Republican,” is nowhere to be found in the editorial.
I guess we can be glad the Intelligencer owes “no allegiance to any special interest.”
Adams discusses school choice
Today's paper did include some balanced analysis from Ogden political reporter Steven Allen Adams on public education and school choice:
Charting a New Course for Public Education?
But our legislators also need to remember they are required by the state Constitution to provide a “thorough and efficient system of free schools.” And at some point, parents with children in public schools are going to begin to notice when their school systems begin to suffer due to lack of funding. Lawmakers need to find a way to access school choice and keep public schools strong. It’s not an either-or situation.

(I think it was “Pickens.”)
