Belated kudos to LNP for its editorial on LGH

We ask LNP to join us in requesting that merger talks be put on hold and to requests public forums be held around the county where questions can be posed and answers required.

Decline of the Philadelphia Inquirer Part 4: Burning a source

EDITOR: “Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition. And we will all go home.” From a popular First World War song, but a good description of President Obama’s foreign policy.

Germanwings Co-Pilot Suffered ‘Serious Depressive Episode’

Credo

"....I have never made it a consideration whether the subject was popular or unpopular, but whether it was right or wrong; for that which is right will become popular, and that which is wrong, though by mistake it may obtain the cry or fashion of the day, will soon lose the power of delusion, and sink into disesteem." Thomas Paine, Common Sense, on "Financing the War", March 5, 1782
