Thursday's must-reads

Published September 23, 2004 1:29PM (EDT)

Wall Street Journal (free link): New poll shows Kerry nearly even with Bush; increasing numbers say invading Iraq wasn't worth the costs.

New York Times: One of seven black men in Atlanta who have been convicted of a felony, and one of every four in Providence, R.I., cannot vote in this year's election, according to a pair of studies released yesterday.

Washington Post: Kerry and Bush to leave campaign trail this weekend for "debate camp."

San Francisco Chronicle: "Flip-flop" label doesn't fit Kerry's position on Iraq; "Kerry has offered the same message ever since talk of attacking Iraq became a national conversation more than two years ago."

Newsweek: High irony at CBS; to air Killian memo segment based on unauthenticated documents, network bumped half-hour segment investigating the U.S. government's reliance on forged documents to make case that Iraq tried to buy uranium from Niger.
