If I had not read it with my own eyes, I would have considered it just about inconceivable that the Trib, that very same Trib owned by a descendant of Judge Thomas Mellon and that regularly publishes columns by Walter Williams and Thomas Sowell, could have also published the front-page news story by Christopher S. Rugaber of The Associated Press headlined “Low inflation's ugly side? Weak economy”.

Does the editor of the front page understand what is often (alas, not always) written on the Opinion page? Does the editor of the front page read the Opinion page? Can the editor of the front page even read? Why does the owner permit this inconsistency, let alone drivel, to appear?

I know that the editors of the Opinion page are familiar with Bastiat, Mises, Williams and Sowell. How can this happen? Geez!
