HOUSTON CHRONICLE'S EDITORIAL PAGE MUM ON DELAY

Nice post by Kevin Whited at "blogHouston.net" on the early reticence of the Houston Chronicle's editorial writers to expound on the indictment against local Congressman Tom Delay.

Kevin observes:

Every major newspaper in the state managed to comment on the DeLay indictment today, except of course the major newspaper that actually serves DeLay's district. How embarrassing for the Chronicle. Perhaps the editorial idealists will get rested up enough from the hard work of putting out a newspaper during a big news event to work up an opinion for tomorrow's newspaper. In the meantime, here are editorials from the Dallas Morning News, Austin American-Statesman, Fort Worth Star-Telegram, and San Antonio Express-News.
