A couple of the R-E's cartoonists came under criticism recently in People's Platform. The first comment was directed toward Dick Wright, a nationally syndicated cartoonist who sided with President Bush on federal tax policy. The reader said: "I'm completely disgusted by the R-E's continued bashing and criticism of the Democratic Party. It doesn't come to anybody's big surprise that that's what the newspaper's all about -- one-sided opinions.
With the lingering war, a lack of funding for local schools and SARS, how could someone think of sports at a time like this?

ST. PAUL -- Xcel Energy electric customers may pay higher rates as Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty holds the company to a 1994 promise to develop renewable energy. The governor Tuesday said he does not want Xcel to spend any of the $8.5 million in a renewable fuels fund for anything else. Bills going through the Legislature would allow the state's largest energy company to spend some of the money to develop a replacement for nuclear power plants or to the Prairie Island Mdewakanton Tribe.
