We don’t normally get generous offers to fix country property like we have with Rockwood Mansion, so for Tom Gordon and his goons to fight it because of some perceived threat to organized labor is beyond ridiculous.
I am proudly pro-choice, and I agree with former President Bill Clinton, who said abortions should be safe, legal and rare. That’s why what’s been happening at Planned Parenthood of Delaware over the last couple of months is so unsettling.

State GOP chairman John Sigler said, “We have a lot of work to do but we’ve accomplished an awful lot.” What exactly did they accomplish, and how long before they win back the trust of big donors in the party still miffed about Christine O’Donnell?
Tonight, Maine Governor Paul LePage will attend a fundraiser for Republican candidate Jeff Cragg as a special guest. If you read today’s News Journal, you know how pitiful Jeff Cragg’s fundraising has been ($60,000 total, $26,250 coming from his own checkbook), so any fundraising help is probably welcome for the Republican gubernatorial candidate.
