Corporate spending: Here come the corporations

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.

David Hegg: We need to change perspective

While I was not yet living when it was fought, World War II has shaped so much of the world in which I have lived. It framed the whole idea of valor and courage and sacrificial service. And it wasn't only those who served in uniform who experienced the war, and felt that they played a vital part in bringing about a good and swift conclusion to it. In truth, we were a nation at war. Soldier and civilian were on the same team, working for a common goal, with mutual respect and honor.
