Politics and More Politics
As expected, the Sunday papers were crammed with commentary on the upcoming elections. The Eureka Reporter and Times- Standard both had summaries of their ballot recommendations.
The Eureka Reporter got all their recommendations right. The Times- Standard got half of them right. Not sure about any of the other papers although we know the North Coast Journal chose not to get into recommendations this time around. I'm surprised the Humboldt Beacon didn't step up to the plate. Doesn't look like it from their web page, though.
Naturally, the letters to the editor were all about the election. I don't have enough interest left in me at this point to read each and every letter. One caught my eye, though, if only because it was only a few sentences. Problem is, I don't know just what the writer was trying to say.
The Eureka Reporter didn't put it online but, since it was so short, I'll go ahead and put it here:
Into the Measure T debate the words of John Dewey: "The corporation is a creature of the state: that is, of political action. It has no existence save by the action of the legislatures and courts".
-Tim Killburn, Eureka
That's it. I guess it's supposed to be some anti- corporate comment along the lines of corporations being created by the state but, other than that, what's the point. Anyone else get it?
