Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

The Knucklehead of the Day award

Today's winner is Randy Schultz, the editor of the Palm Beach Post editorial page. Last Thursday I blogged on the error prone column of Tom Blackburn one of the paper's columnists. This was the reply I got back from Mr. Schultz.

Thanks for the e-mail. I check with Tom, who reviewed his sources for the column. Seems that different sources can differ. Other points you raise deal with interpretation -- 4-4-1 vs 5-4 -- that is part of any column. I don't see a need for a published correction.

What sources? Nine mistakes don't rate a correction? That tells you the Post editorial and it's columnists will say anything and the facts be damned. What kind of newspaper is this? I think I just found out.

For having no journalistic integrity and jettisoning his newspaper's reputation, Randy Schultz is the Knucklehead of the day.
