Credit where credit is due... even to the Star-Tribune. Don't think that attitude comes simple from Version 2.0 of the Anti-Strib... certainly not. We contributors were quite willing to pass praise and recognize points of view written with sense and tact. It seems all the more refreshing after reading yet another one of Tom Hammond's sniggering screeds from Woodbury.

Letter of the day: Coleman should look to Andersen for guidance

I was too foolish and young at the time to realize what a classy governor Elmer L. Andersen was when he conceded his narrow defeat to Karl Rolvaag back in 1963. Like Norm Coleman, he won, then lost in the recount. Unlike Coleman, though, he thought representation was more important than haggling over a few votes that were not clearly his. It was only as I grew older that I realized what a principled man he was. He is missed more than the man who defeated him.
