Although the exact future impact of the Supreme Court's decision to allow unlimited political spending by corporations is unknown, the wide-reaching detrimental effects on local election campaigns will be inescapable. That is, unless something is done to change it.

Gary Horton: Blind to our own blindness

One day I'm sitting at this bar when a blind man walks in with his seeing-eye dog. The dog leads the man straight to the bar and the man pulls up a chair. All of a sudden, the blind man yanks the dog up by the leash and starts spinning him around and around over his head.

W.E. Gutman: Injustice under law and disorder

On June 28, 2009, as half the world awoke to a new round of fiscal woes, civil unrest and war, in another part of the globe, under the cover of darkness, a constitutionally elected leader was rudely stirred from bed and, still in his pajamas, abducted at gunpoint and flown out of the country.

Tim Myers: Honey, I'll be home after my 175th house party

So the citizens of Santa Clarita, or at least the 13 percent of eligible voters (about 11,000 to 12,000 people) find themselves in the midst of a City Council election campaign, and those probably 800 discrete people who made themselves fans or friends of three candidates' social networking sites can monitor the every move of David Gauny, TimBen Boydston and Harrison Katz, the three challengers to the power of incumbency who look to mount an actual campaign.

David Hegg: We don’t have to think alike

In every ordered and civilized society the rule of law plays an essential role. Given that human nature is too often selfish and sometimes even cruel, laws are enacted to declare the boundaries between right and wrong. Laws form the lens through which society views the actions of those individuals who choose to live in the group.

David Hegg: Toward ethical friendship

Someone has rightly said that a true friend is one who walks in when everyone else is walking out. In most areas of life, tragedy and trial bring truth to the surface.

When it comes to friendships, hard times bring out the reality of the relationship.
