Editorial: Police needs

Orwell, the police don't just sit at the station, waiting for a call to come in. Officers on a shift are assigned a section of the city to patrol while they are on duty.

Former Republican state senator talks about conversion to Democratic Party

That's okay, the GOP isn't relevant nationally. Their own extremism has seen to that nicely.

Republican budget writers propose 4 percent across-the-board cut to higher education

People complain about roads, police services, tuition increases, and on and on, but heaven forbid you actually expect them to pay taxes that will finance the means by which their complaints will be fixed. That's just crazy talk!
