    Lovely leaves, wiser words 

    While we must wait until Sunday for the Youngstown Vindicator Sunday to complete the cycle of the larger Ohio newspaper endorsements (4 are for Bush, 3 are for Kerry and 1 refuses to make a choice), Ohioblog wants to share three endorsements (all for Kerry) from liberal Vermont. While Vermont is not much like Ohio (we both have cows), its newspapers are much better than their circulation and resources might indicate. So take a look at the two-part process used by the Valley News from White River Junction, the Burlington Free Press and the Rutland Herald. I'm assuming the Rutland editorial was written by David Moats, who won the Pulitizer Prize for editorial campaign for civil unions that was most acrimonious. Here's one paragraph of the Herald presidential endorsement: ``It may strike some as curious to assert that President Bush has undermined the moral standing of the United States. After all, he is a president who has made a poiint of taking what he views as the moral position on a host of issues. But truthfulness is a moral quality, too, and it is a quality that is fundamental to leadership. By restoring trust in the world of the American president, John Kerry will be able to redress the betrayal for which President Bush is responsible.'' Vermont has much more to admire than pretty foilage.
