  • 0912 one bday wm j kelly 2013 mug.jpg KELLY: What do you think?

  • Hamilton, Lee.jpg OPINION: Fixing Congress

    These are hard times for Congress. Its approval ratings have seen a bump from their historic lows of a few months ago, but it’s a small one. Our representative democracy’s keystone political institution is widely derided as ineffective, unproductive, irrelevant, and sadly out of touch.

  • larry jones cropped:color NOW HEAR THIS: Put a muffler on it

    I suppose I live a somewhat pampered life down on the “pore farm” – far away from the noise, traffic and hustle and bustle of urban life. For me it is a wonderful thing and a blessing to savor.
