Cut Kerry Some Slack

I've read people criticizing Kerry for announcing that he will suspend his campaign this week to mourn the death of President Reagan. Cut the guy some slack. Our state's Republican gubernatorial candidates are doing the same thing, but nobody seems to be arching their eyebrows at them. It's just the right thing to do.

And besides, we should note that this is the one issue on which Kerry has taken only one side. He didn't, after all, decide not to suspend his campaign, and then decide to suspend it. Cut the guy some slack on the one time he's gotten it right first crack out of the box.
