    Swingers no more? 

    R. W. Apple, The New York Times' old star from Akron, visited swing state Missouri and has written a story from which a reader could infer that President Bush has showed the Show Me state. Apple, however,learned this description of Missouri in Ohio: ``Neither wholly Southern nor wholly Northern, fully Eastern nor fully Western, it is America writ small. Most of its demographic characteristics - its residents' age, marital status, income and educational levels - mirror the nation's.'' The President's lead over John Kerry in the Missouri polls is similar to his lead in Ohio - 7 or 8 percentage points, not safely beyond the margin of error but a significant tilt in the Bush direction.

    - Steve Love
