Hard to believe it was once one of the nation's top newspapers.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel continues its track record for banal editorial writing:

True, the writer points out that there's merit to listening to your enemies but glosses over the other crucial issue: curtailing freedom of expression here would make us no better than the Iranian government. The Journal-Sentinel glosses over the fact that the best counter measure against terrorism is the vigorous exercise of our freedoms.

Too bad. It could have been a great editorial.
