Update: Needles in a Haystack

Yesterday, Andy Roth and I called for readers to help us out in our (admittedly challenging) quest to find conservative editorial pages in all 50 states. We're still getting a ton o' tips, but the list is nowhere near complete.

One of Andy's readers pointed him to the "rarest of the species--a tiny, conservative New England newspaper. Meet the Waterbury Republican-American in Connecticut."

Today, the Waterbury Republican-American points to organized labor as part of the problem in the recent GM and Ford lay-offs:

Those are just three of the Asian and European companies that are taking advantage of the American worker's high productivity by building cars and trucks in the United States.

Significantly, these workers are not represented by the United Auto Workers. Over several decades, short-sighted managers and union leaders negotiated contracts that have forced once-vibrant giants such as Ford and GM to become shadows of their former selves, slashing their research-and-development and quality-control budgets to accommodate increasingly burdensome labor costs.

Heck, yeah. Send 'em some traffic for that.

I found out yesterday that the Savannah (Ga.) Morning News (another Morris paper) has a conservative editorial page. How did I find out?

Because one of the Morning News' editorial page staffers was reading the blog, and sent me an e-mail just a little while after my post went up. An editorial writer reading HughHewitt.com? That sounds like proof enough to me, but he offers more in his e-mail:

"...we’ve twice endorsed GW Bush for president, we support low taxes, less government, free speech (death to McCain-Feingold!), etc.

I got another recommendation for the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, but it's subscription-only.

Another reader, Shain in California, suggests the Las Vegas Journal-Review. Today, that paper advocates stretching existing transportation dollars with new ideas instead of raising taxes.

The paper's take on forcing medical professionals to provide services with which they have moral objections:

Requiring a doctor to perform artificial insemination? Requiring a pharmacist to sell a certain pill? When (barring government interference) the free market will quickly solve this problem in 99 percent of cases by creating an incentive for competing providers to spring up down the street or over the Internet?

More throughout the day. Right now, I'm heading up to Baltimore to sit in on the RSC Conservative Member Retreat. Boehner, Blunt, and Shadegg are all there, so it could be interesting.
