The Editorial Board starts most meetings with a discussion of "gorilla'' topics in the news. The idea is that gorillas are issues we probably will want to address, either with our own editorials or columns from local or syndicated writers. There were plenty of gorillas in the room this morning. The U.S. economy (How will we pay for all of this?), tonight's presidential debate (Will the candidates discuss in detail how the economic downturn will change their agendas?) and the future of transportation in the suburbs (Will we expand light-rail in the south metro?) were three of the topics we kicked around. We're also interested in the mental health parity bill, which passed Friday as part of the Wall Street rescue. We've always supported the legislation. Now we're wondering how it will be implemented. Feel free to weigh in on any of these topics with a comment.
