The Intelligencer, out of its concern for the poor, editorializes that plastic bags should not be banned
Yes, my bridge is still for sale.
This morning's Wheeling Intelligencer editorial, “Plastic Bag Fees Not Good Idea,” argues that a plastic bag fee at Ohio’s grocery stores would put an unfair burden upon the poor and it chastises liberals for even suggesting the idea.

It never is when Republicans are at fault*
I seldom comment upon local editorials about Ohio politics. (Ogden editorials about West Virginia politics are usually more than enough to keep me busy.) A sentence in the editorial, “Probe Charter School Fiasco,” caught my attention, however, and I couldn’t let it go by without some research and comments.

No Warner news story but we do get the inevitable editorial
Regular readers of the Wheeling Intelligencer knew it was coming. In the absence of any actual news coverage of West Virginia Secretary of State Mac Warner just having cost the state a couple of million dollars (see previous two posts), we instead get an editorial defending . . .

This morning's Intelligencer editorial thinks that West Virginia should "Clean Up Court Without Politics"
On Thursday, I wrote about how rejected Republican senatorial candidate, Nobel-Peace-Prize-for-Trump booster, and West Virginia's current 3rd District Congressman, Evan Jenkins, was considering a run for West Virginia's Supreme Court.

Are there any other media sources defending the president's statements about Putin and the Russians?
This morning’s Wheeling Intelligencer editorial, “Credit Trump With Diplomacy,” supports Donald Trump’s statements following the president’s meeting with Putin.
