LATTE: With the rise of the Campbell Brown "No B.S." hour and Rachel Maddow, now TV news is more op-ed page than front page. Is this a good thing? HuffnStuff: It's absolutely a good thing.

    Imagine my surprise when I clicked on the Drudge article "FU long overdue" which links to a Washington Post article. Right in the middle of the article pops up an ad crowing out:Time for a change. Make One. Donate to John Kerry – Give $50 now So now articles themselves - as biased as they are - aren't even enough. Planted INSIDE the attack on Preidsent Bush is an ad where you can DONATE MONEY to the opposition candidate! It is OUTRAGEOUS!

    Atlanta-AP -- The Georgia state flag, whose symbolism was initially meant to satisfy everyone, will be retired today after being flown for only two years. Georgia Governor Sonny Purdue plans to sign a bill to take down the controversial flag and replace it with a simpler design. When the 2001 flag was introduced it was considered a political masterstroke. It shrunk the Confederate battle cross and incorporated the symbol in a small montage of older Georgia flags.The flag was quickly voted the nation's ugliest by a group of flag experts. School children couldn't draw it. Around the state Capitol, it...
