A reader emailed me, confused at a page he found on KansasCity.com. It's a short list of facts about Amtrak, with a credit line from an organization called Face the Facts USA.
"Is this an editorial?" wrote my emailer. "If so, it is not labeled as such, that I see. Is this an advertisement? If so, it is not labeled as such, that I see. It is political propaganda, at the least, and is either an advertisement, or something else."
