Chicago is one of the few remaining citys with more than one major daily paper. We have the Tribune (ugh) and the Sun-Times; in fact, you could even include the Daily Herald even though it focuses on the suburbs.
The Sun-Times has its share of issues: first and foremost, no one is ever going to accuse them of having a conservative bias. However, at least they aren't as rabidly partisan as the Tribune. More importantly, however, the Sun-Times carries Mark Steyn and publishes his column every Sunday. This alone is usually worth the $1.50 for the paper.
Steyn makes short work of John Kerry and the rest of the "Defeaticrats" who seem to think the rest of the world is as stupid as the MSM when they describe a retreat as "redeploying" our troops.
The only teensy-weensy problem is this: If America ever adopts the Kerry plan, the Murtha plan or some variation thereof, does anyone think al-Jazeera, the BBC, Le Monde, Der Spiegel et al will be using the word "redeploy" in their headlines? Or will they use a word closer to what's actually going on?Read the rest of Steyn's article here.
