Time to cut spending: now that the rich got their tax cut, the Wheeling Intelligencer wants us to worry about the national debt

Not too predictable: this morning’s Intelligencer editorial wants us to rein-in spending

Is it asking too much to expect an editorial writer to do research?

Yet another clueless editorial on sports betting

From Saturday morning’s editorial (“Get Integrity Plan in Place”) about West Virginia sports betting:

One defect in the Mountain State law is the absurdly low cut of proceeds from sports betting that will go to the state — a paltry 10 percent. Pennsylvania, one of the few other states with sports betting statutes in place, sets . . .
