The newspapers have made their endorsements and pontificated in editorials about who should be elected to Congress, to the Governorship of Alaska, and the Alaska State Legislature. The burning question is, “So what!”

Like everyone else, opinion page editors and the newspaper editorial board have political opinions. Good. We all should. But here’s a headline of my own: newspaper editorials and endorsements are not – repeat not – Holy Writ. Your own personal choices on whom to vote for are no less valid than the newspaper's.

It's dangerous to disagree with folks having access to unlimited ink, but the media’s political opinions likely have scant more creditability than asking the opinion of next person walking down the street – and maybe less. So go vote Tuesday. Make up your own mind. You’re just as smart as they are.
