Republicans Have Become The Anti-Democracy Party

To The Reader’s Forum: Over the past 28 years the only Republican presidential candidate to win a majority of the American public’s vote was George W. Bush in 2004. Seven presidential elections and only once did the people of our country choose a Republican. 2020 will be the eighth as ...

Why Not Have A Talk With Mitrano

How Can Present-Day Jobs Stimulate Imagination?

Readers’ Forum

Ready Or Not, The Election Is Coming To The Reader’s Forum: Ready or not the election of 2020 is coming and it promises to be rough, tough and fascinating. Neither side agrees with the other about much of anything. Both are firmly convinced they’re in the right. Whenever that happens, ...

First Amendment Is Under Fire

Careful Consideration Needed For Mask Use
