Corruption in government is as old as democracy, but that doesn't mean we have to accept it and not do everything we can to at least limit it. Write to the Governor or your local legislator and demand they champion these six reforms.

Lawrence D. Mass, M.D.

In the case of Klinghoffer, as in the case of Cruising, the bottom lines for me are simple. I am concerned about some of the rhetoric and tactics of some gay radicals, but I am a lot more concerned about homophobia.

It is inconsiderate to download lots of files on shared WiFi or to spider Wikipedia too quickly, but none of these actions should lead to a young person being hounded for years and haunted by the possibility of a 35 year sentence.
