Are you kidding me?

Page 5A of the Saturday, Aug. 6, paper, the article “Firm downgrades U.S. credit rating” reads “Credit rating agency Standard & Poor’s on Friday lowered the nation’s AAA rating for the first time since granting it in 1917.”

On the front page of that same paper appears the headline “Liquor limits urged.”

Good Lord. Where’s your head? Where are your priorities? The FIRST TIME IN HISTORY America’s credit rating was lowered.

Shame on you, The Advocate!
