How much do you think large monetary contributions to campaigns can sway elected officials?

Way too much; it’s seriously time to big take money out of politics.
Enough to reevaluate campaign finance laws and how they impact our political system.
Maybe a little; but in the end they still must answer to voters.
Not a concern; it’s how things work, and any serious candidate must stack some chips.

Anna Weltner: insightful

By Steven Pressman - San Francisco

I just wanted to write a quick note of deep appreciation for your very kind review of my film, 50 Children, which showed during the SLO Jewish Film Festival (“Jewish for a weekend,” Jan. 9).

I thought the review was one of the more intelligent and insightful pieces of commentary about the film (and its overall historical context) that I’ve read ever since the film was first released. It was a pleasure to read, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to show the film at the festival this weekend.
