Chron At Large endorsements

Just noting for the record that the Chron made unsurprising endorsements in all four contested At Large City Council races - Peter Brown, Jay Aiyer, Shelley Sekula Somethingorother, and Michael Berry. I'd have thought they'd do a separate piece for each one, especially the two open seat races, but whatever. If they give real up-or-down recommendations on all the constitutional amendments, I'll be happy.

(And so we're clear, I mean "unsurprising" in the sense that these are the candidates I'd expect the Chron to support, based on their usual preferences. Sometimes that's for the good, as it is here with Brown and Aiyer, and sometimes, as with every Bush that's ever run for office, it's not so good. But at least it's usually predictable.)

It's so much different than living in California. The San Jose Mercury News never met a Democratic candidate, a tax hike or a school bond measure it didn't like.

To move from a liberal bastion to a deep red state is, well, quite a turn of events.
