Southern Wisconsin dreams of a day when the Wisconsin State Journal editorial page might regularly make sense. Is today the day they start?
Today’s editorial “Stop grousing at the referee” is a perfect example of how easy it can be to deliver a Type II – Surprisingly Correct editorial. The editorial criticizes Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald’s foolish call to get rid of Wisconsin’s 4-year-old, non-partisan Government Accountability Board.
When the WSJ editorial board gets one right, we’ll say so, happily. And on Friday, Dec. 16, 2011, they got one right. We memorialize it as Surprisingly Correct in our permanent Index of Daily Editorials.
