Ron Starting to Play in Peoria

My local newspaper, the Columbia (Missouri) Daily Tribune, devoted the entire front page of today’s Sunday “Perspectives” section to a reprint of Michael Crowley’s TNR article on Ron Paul, along with a huge (8″ x 10″) photo of Ron from the New Hampshire debate. The headline was “Out of Obscurity” with this subtitle: “With his recent comment about U.S. aggression, presidential candidate Ron Paul hit a nerve among his oppponents but struck a chord with the public.” To my knowledge none of the other candidates, major or minor, has merited such treatment.
