I was so sad and disappointed to read about the printing room of TheForum being dismantled . I really liked having an actual paper in my hands (yes, yes, I’m old).

I know that “progress” happens, but I don’t have to like it!

Backer writes, "Without a doubt, we’ve had our challenges. We’ve made a few mistakes, some serious and painful, along the way. Through it all, we’ve persevered; we’ve learned and become better. And we won’t stop learning and becoming better."
Kooyer writes, "Even though considered protected free speech by the U.S. Supreme Court, usurping our collective, beloved, enduring emblem of democracy for the purposes of making a political statement is something in which thoughtful Americans of good character simply do not engage."
Martin writes, "Our Jan. 6th Capitol riot is a dark and dismal day in recent history. The day was bad enough and our reaction is worse."
Carpenter writes, "My attitude toward political involvement has changed, for a lot of reasons. One reason is that I have gotten to the age where I’m thinking more about the world that I am leaving to my children and grandchildren."
