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.

Stop the shredding

Nipomo

By Bill Denneen

The time has come to terminate the “Shredder.” He slams me about a letter that was never printed (“Put a cork in it,” Jan. 10). He puts things in his writing that offend me: “shove a cork up their wombs.” I agree my letter had many faults and was poorly written—but it was never printed.

Terminate anonymous articles (Shredder).
