"The Powers" Once
Responded To "The People!"

We have been in the weekly newspaper business for a long time. A long time.

Used to -- some time ago -- if we called out a politician or if we suggested that he might not be the most honest and dependable apple on the tree, he would be on the phone or at our doorstep the next day, either defending his position, calling us a liar, or making up his own lie.

The point is, he would almost always respond to a barb thrown at him from the local newspaper. That is how much the politicians -- a generation or two ago thought of The People and the LOCAL newspaper that he knew represented The People -- UNQUESTIONABLY.

Today -- whether you are right or wrong when you challenge a politician or a political happening (city, county, state. . . you name it), you never hear a peep from those involved.
