- Grand Experiment, Day 4 -

The front page of the local paper was dominated by the Wall Street mess. There was also a small story on Ike and the attack on the US Embassy in Yemen. Inside there were two campaign articles, one on economics, the other immigration. According to the second article, the Spanish-language campaign is pretty nasty, with both campaigns freely stretching the truth. The other article spent a large amount of space discussing Obama's proposals and McCain came across as missing in action. Editorial page didn't mention the election, though three of the op-ed columns did. None of them made much of an impression, though the headlines seemed to favor Obama. Overall, my impression is that someone glancing over the paper would have come away with a slightly better impression of Obama than McCain.
