Weekly Poll
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.

Insufferable bureau-culturalism of a stubborn egoist

By Strawberry Bird - Atascadero

Dear Glen,

You’ve been coughing up a lot of bull about The Monroe lately (“Stay classy!” March 6). If you haven’t noticed the world is in flames, robots have taken over, and you’ve decided to waste everybody’s time griping about the material and non-material marketing conquests of one band that you claim to love! How boring and insignificant. :(

If you ever need to relax and kick back and get out of your tired box, let me know. The hot dog is on me.
