  1. I would have to respectfully disagree. I dont' come to RTH for 'non-partisan truth', I come to RTH for thoughtful opinion and commentary. Most of which I agree with, and some of which I completely disagree with. That's what the dialogue and comments are for.

  2. Is there any such thing as 'non-partisan truth'? I would say no. Even a passing familiarity with Jung will reveal that every type of information of this sort is first written through one person's filter, and then read through another. As a long-time student of Political Science and the media, I would submit that there is no such thing as 'truth' in media, there is only 'stuff you agree with', and 'stuff you disagree with.' Ask a FOX News fan if they feel their media outlet is 'non-partisan' truth, they will insist that it is. Now who's right? And who gets to decide?

As for @Mahesh's remarks about Ryan's waning intellect, I would encourage him to keep the dialogue respectful if he wishes to have any hope at that Mayor's chair. If the 'strikeout' was meant to be mocking, my advice to Mr. Mahesh would be to 'suck it up'. Being in the public eye is not all sunshine and rainbows, and letters filled with righteous indignation and personal attacks over very minor slights do nothing to help his cause. This is a lesson I suspect the volatile Mr. Bratina is going to learn the hard way, shortly, assuming The Spec ever stops with the daily foot massages.
