Note To P-G: Time To Try A Non-Shelter Chimp?

The Post-Gazette editorial board endorsed four Superior Court candidates, ignoring the best candidate -- Judith Olson, currently a judge of Allegheny County's Court of Common Pleas -- while picking a local mediocrity (Temp Smith), ostensibly because of his "enthusiasm for writing opinions." Mr. Smith has been forced to curb his enthusiasm for writing judicial opinions to this point, of course, because he has never been a judge.

How does the P-G editorial board determine its endorsements? After this
performance, the most plausible explanation involves a dartboard and a chimpanzee.

Seriously, the PG can't even keep up with reporting virtually any important content on the mayoral candidates. Now they have to actually report on a state supreme court race as well?
