Max’s View

1971 *** Edward Snowden is a traitor. That’s what a lot of Americans – smart, reasonable Americans – think. Not me, though. To me, Edward Snowden was a selfless hero for releasing those secret files when he had the chance. The NSA had been collecting data on millions of Americans without a warrant and it was only right that we knew the truth. The g...

Reiss’s Pieces

By Judy Reiss I don’t know when I first had bad leg cramps. I think it was shortly after my first child but I wouldn’t swear to it. What I can swear to is that from the very beginning of these cramps, I have really suffered. In the beginning, most of the cramps were in my upper thighs. I was also a lot heavier than I am now and it was almost imposs...

August Primary Election

Editor, Peter Galbraith will be a Vermont governor with clear and bold proposals for the common good. Galbraith also has the backbone to move these changes through a legislature unable to find a remedy to the gridlock and inertia that have prevented measurable progress.

The Tree You Planted

By G. E. Shuman I lost my baby brother last week. After over six years of a heroic battle with cancer, he is, finally, at rest, and totally out of the reach of any more pain. His death is tragic, but in some ways, it was “best for him”, as his loving, grieving wife told me on the phone only hours before his departing. His suffering is completely fi...

Max’s View: Thank You, Police

In general, I am not inclined to respect institutions of authority and power. I think the entire criminal justice system should be overhauled and radically simplified so that judges, lawyers, and prison wardens have less control over our society. Every criminal case should have exactly one question: are people in the defendant’s community safer and...

Reiss’s Pieces

By Judy Reiss I know that this topic is going to make a lot of people mad, but I just can’t help myself! And here is the questions, why do young people want to desecrate their bodies with tattoos? Now before you tear up the newspaper, let me ask you a couple more questions. I know that it is a painful way to put pictures on your body and I also kno...

Anti-American Hate Speech on Independence Day

Editor, A letter in WORLD’s Independence Day issue was a classic example of anti-American hate speech encased in a long parade of nonsense. Andrew Torre characterized U.S. patriotism as a “vacuous myth,” “an infantile love” and “the last refuge of a scoundrel” as he “searched” for the true meaning of the word, “patriotism.” He correctly began with...
