  • Another Perspective: What’s happened to the Democratic Party?

    Once I was a Democrat. I went to see JFK at a rally in Elmhurst, Ill., wrote to Jimmy Carter and voted for William Jefferson Clinton in his first term.

    But things started to change in the ‘60s with the anything- goes generation, and culminated in Bill’s gig/gag with Monica Lewinsky in the Oval Office. I learned then we had devolved from a party of upstanding principles to one of political opportunism, i.e. get what you can, any way you can.

  • Go North; the rush is on

    The following editorial was published in the New Castle (Pa.) News on March 9.
