Congressional race shaping up

This morning's Ithaca Journal has two articles on the race for Congress in the 24th District. Democrat Brian Goodell of Lansing has left the race and endorsed Jeff Miller of New Hartford. Meanwhile, Republican incumbent Sherwood Boehlert has raised a million dollars as he battles David Walrath, who has filed to run against him in the primary and on the Conservative line.

(You can visit Bohlert's web site and Walrath's web site.)

The Journal also posts the TC3 Dean's List today.

The Ithaca Journal is going to take more advantage of its web site to publish more reader letters, going beyond the space available on the editorial page. They still won't print everything:

"Will every letter submitted make it into the standard or Web version of The Journal? Unfortunately, no. Each letter appearing on the Web also must be read, edited, verified and published, just as print versions are. That effort takes staff time. If this newspaper were to publish all suitable letters, it would need an fleet of new editors to process them."

It sounds like an interesting compromise, something to watch.
