Very nice. I don’t know about the other newspapers but the DMR endorsement was a big shocker to Iowans and good for us. ;)

I hope the regular editors don’t get rescued until after the polls close; but I do want them there the day after. I want schadenfreude!

I just don't envision the 47% buying many newspapers (let alone any advertising space in them).
