An anonymous commenter tipped me to a rumor that my hometown paper, the Austin American-Statesman, is planning to endorse Bush this weekend.
Frankly, I’m shocked. The Statesman’s editorial page has been quite critical of Bush lately, and they’ve been endorsing several democrats in local races such as Mark Strama and Kelly White for state representatives over DeLay-whores Jack Stick and Todd Baxter. But this is no time to take anything for granted.
Make your views known. Anon suggests contacting publisher Mike Laosa: email@example.com or calling the paper at (512) 445-3500.
You might also try editorial page editor Arnold Garcia (512)445-3667 or sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Act now, espicially those of you in the Austin area.
