Do you wonder sometimes whether or not the politicians in Washington or Lansing are really trying to solve the problems our country or state faces? I do. Or are our political leaders simply trying to get re-elected by pandering to their base of support? Do you turn on the television at night to watch the news hoping to find out what happened earlier in the day, but instead are frustrated by the “talking heads” who spout talking points. I am.

My mother and father used to watch Huntley-Brinkley every night religiously. I miss Chet’s and David’s just-the-facts journalism.
