Editorial Woes

The editorial page fails in the same way the reporting side of the N&O does by failing to name names when it matters. The lead editorial today is titled Budget Fiasco, and the budget is rightfully taken to task in some areas. But not only did the editorial writers fail to mention who runs the state Senate, they even omitted the names of the Senate leaders. One thing editorial writers are allowed to do is place blame, so why pull the punches now?
