A suggestion for our local editor – read your own newspaper
In yesterday's column*, “Bringing Them Back to W.Va.”, Wheeling News-Register editor Mike Myer begins by documenting West Virginia’s population decline. Myer then wonders why young people are leaving the state and what the state can do to bring those who have left back to the state. On these latter points, Myer does no research -- . . .

Mike Myer knows his audience: Yes, it's another column that scapegoats Obama
Today’s Mike Myer column, "Picking Winners and Losers," is mostly an attack upon the Obama administration’s supposed “war on coal.” Of course, Myer totally ignores the obvious – that market forces, especially cheap natural gas, is the primary cause for coal’s decline.

Sunday’s Mike Myer column, “What’s Wrong With Us,” argued that it’s video games, not guns, that need restricting.
