Star Tribune going soft on Bush

This story was on the front page of the Star Tribune today. I read it expecting the usual jibes at President Bush, but he came off sounding nothing but sympathetic and genuinely kind to the family of a local soldier who died in Iraq. This quote appears in the first paragraph:

[The family decided they] should try to get in to see President Bush to tell him of their continuing support of him and the war.

I was shocked, shocked, I say. They move Lileks to the web (DUH!!) and then run a front page story that fails to disparage the president.

I'm not sure how to interpret this information.
