Legislation is just the start (08/15/10)
You might imagine, now that President Obama has signed the massive financial reform package into law, that the issue is behind us. Hardly. In a way, the president's signature was just the starter's pistol. This is because, despite its length -- more than 2,000 pages -- and the many months of negotiations that went into crafting it, the financial overhaul measure leaves countless issues to be resolved later by federal regulators and the lobbyists who will try to influence their decisions. ...

This bill is crucial to advancing both the ethics and science of medical research...
Reader enjoys service at Brazil License Branch (08/15/10)
To the Editor: After living in five states, I have come to associate long waits, poor service and rude employees with the Bureau of Motor Vehicles. "Poor service delivered with an attitude," seemed to be their motto.
