Coming Tuesday on the editorial page

With Monday's announcement from Washington concerning the possible replacement for former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, The Star's editorial board is weighing in on the possibilities for Michael Mukasey:
Perhaps the best Americans can hope for with the nomination of Mukasey is the Robert Gates model. Gates, who replaced Donald Rumsfeld as defense secretary, is (a.) a straight-shooter, (b.) a foreign-policy realist and (c.) not a Bush crony.
The Star also is suggesting that Jacksonville State University ought to consider promoting its best features more frequently:
Somewhere within the master plan of JSU’s Board of Trustees should be this: Put the Marching Southerners on display. Give them a stage larger than Paul Snow Stadium. They represented Saturday night in Memphis. They could be the best recruiters currently wearing JSU red.
