    An easy guide to keeping political news in perspective 。。。。。

    The Wall Street Journal is read by the people who run the country.

    The Washington Post is read by people who think they run the country

    .The New York Times is read by people who think they should run the country, and who are very good at crossword puzzles.

    USA Today is read by people who think they ought to run the country but don't really understand The New York Times. They do, however, like their statistics shown in pie charts.

    . The Los Angeles Times is read by people who wouldn't mind running the country, if they could find the time -- and if they didn't have to leave Southern California to do it.

    .The Boston Globe is read by people whose parents used to run the country and did a poor job of it, thank you very much.

    The New York Daily News is read by people who aren't too sure who's running the country and don't really care as long as they can get a seat on the train.

    .The New York Post is read by people who don't care who is running the country as long as they do something really scandalous, preferably while intoxicated.

    The Miami Herald is read by people who are running another country, but need the baseball scores.

    .The San Francisco Chronicle is read by people who aren't sure if there is a country or that anyone is running it; but if so, they oppose all that they stand for. There are occasional exceptions if the leaders are gay, handicapped, minority, dwarfs who also happen to be illegal aliens from any other country or galaxy, provided of course, that they are not Republicans.

    The National Enquirer is read by people trapped in line at the grocery store.

    The Seattle Times is read by people who have recently caught a fish and need something to wrap it in.

    The Kansas City Star is read by people who think the country runs great in the hands of a Democrat, which around here is thought to be synonymous with "Harry Truman."

    The St. Louis Post Dispatch is read by people who think their city is "Boston West."

    The Topeka Capitol-Journal is read by people who are just as likely to have voted for Kathleen Sebilius as they are to have voted for Sam Brownback.

    The Tulsa World is read by people who own oil stock, gas stock, oil and gas equipment stock and complain about there not being enough "green" energy sources.

    The Des Moines Register is read by men and women considering running for president in two years.
