In this morning's Winona Daily News, either the headline writer hadn't heard that, fell victim of aggressive spell-checking software, became hooked on phonics, or perhaps was recruited by the local Minutemen as a stealth supporter of Representative Steve Drazkowski's English-only bill.
The screenshot to the right preserves the moment.
Headline now corrected, the WDN editorial itself is quite kind to Congressman Walz. In Our view: Walz struck the right tone, Darrell Ehrlick writes on behalf of the editors:
It's not that big of deal for residents of Minnesota's 1st Congressional District to see their congressman out and about. Rep. Tim Walz is a familiar face - and the entire region is better for it.
Most of the time Walz is not the guy in the tie. He looks like most of us; he's a former high school teacher and football coach; he truly is one of us, who happens to be a member of Congress.
So, when Walz announced a week ago that he was going to make a few public appearances, no one really thought much about it.
But in a subtle, yet not provocative way, he made a big statement. . . .
The statement was that the shooting of his friend and colleague in Arizona--and the murders that accompanied it--won't make him less accessible to the public.
Read whole thing at the WDN.
Screenshot: Pay no attention to that large sign behind the congressman--in English, we waltz.
