Let's be honest, if they hadn't, they might have had 90% of the city boycott their paper.

In other news, I just checked and it appears the Indianapolis Star has not officially endorsed either candidate. Typically, they swing toward the Republican party, so the fact that they've not yet officially endorsed McCain speaks volumes. They may do that yet, but I'm wondering if maybe this is a way of silently supporting Obama without ticking off the right-wingers who subscribe to their paper.

Side notes- They endorsed Clinton in the primary. Also, Obama actually campaigned in Indiana and, from what I've heard, had (has?) a slight lead over McCain for awhile.

I'm sincerely surprised.
