Roanoke Times' new columnist (Letting Teddy Drive)

Looks like our concerns about The Roanoke Times replacing libertarian columnist James Lileks with liberal Rick Horowitz were well-founded. Here's a sample from Horowitz's column today:

Culture of Lies. Are you old enough to remember when conservative politicians believed in the separation of powers?...Do you ever suspect that the only thing lots of today's "conservative" politicians want is to conserve is their own grip on power?

Subtle. Nuanced. Note the concern for Terri Schiavo. Wow. Lileks could never match that.
