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.

Shredder says, 'You're welcome!'

Cambria

By Shirley Bianchi

Dear Shredder, what a pleasure to read your column about Adam Hill and, on another subject, women (“Put a cork in it,” Jan. 10). As a former supervisor, there is nothing more frustrating than spending some three years meeting with a group, coming to an agreement, and then having someone from the extreme edges of political thought start throwing monkey wrenches into the process. I sympathized with Adam Hill, and I appreciated your column as a result.

Re: women. I particularly like the point that women do not belong anywhere! Thanks much.
