Foster is usually quite fair and balanced. I'm definitely not saying I always agree with him, but he does his research and tries to stay as objective as he can. In addition, if you write him about his columns, you will more often than not get a thoughtful response.

This column is a good example. He isn't creating anything that isn't there like a few of his fellow "reporters" from the other paper do. He is giving an opnion that doesn't sound like it came from either a fan or a malcontent. That is pretty much all you can ask.

Bipolar might be a bit far, considering that the editors are the ones who write the headlines. He (Foster) submits his writing; the headline is out of his hands. Methinks the DetNews higher ups see some Freep-like venom coming there way, and want to make damn sure they spin this latest article as hard as possible in a pro-Michigan light. . . to counterbalance the somehwhat harsh pieces turned in by TF from Iowa City Saturday night.
