Viewpoints – Christmas Poem – Tit for Tat

Dear Editor, I wrote a Christmas poem that I hope our readers like.   Tit for Tat Tit for tat; imagine that. Give a little get a little; that’s where it’s at. Tis the season for giving; imagine that, And you don’t even have to wear Santa’s hat. Money and gifts are not where it’s at. But sharing love and friendship, tit for tat. Sharing ‘you’ is the most important thing, Whether it’s the doorbell or telephone ring. Love never needs to be ‘returned’ to the store, It’s held within the heart forever more. Share the love, that’s where it’s at, Tit for tat; imagine that.   Happy Holidays, Nanette Piotrowski...

You Can Lay the Groundwork for Reforming Congress

by Lee. H.

We are still striving to make that vision real for all, but we are closer than ever. So let me ask you some questions about Congress today. Do you think the voice of ordinary Americans resounds strongly in its hallways and chambers? Can you recall Congress in the last few years successfully dealing with an issue that directly affected your life? Does Congress produce legislation that resolves our differences and brings us closer together? Do you believe that the political system produces members of Congress who fairly and effectively represent the diversity and complexity of this country and are addressing our real, long-term challenges? I thought not. This is why I believe it’s past time for comprehensive reform of Congress. Representative democracy today is being undermined by the rising power of big money, the challenges of governing a country as large and diverse as ours, the problems brought by rising economic inequality, the ineffectiveness of our political institutions, and too many citizens who were never taught the skills needed to make the pragmatic judgments necessary in a representative democracy. In the present environment, it’s doubtful that the various reforms needed...
