Conservative Crisis
The holidays are an indulgent time, so I spoil myself here with a bit of political economy. By way of background, I think it is now obvious that significant changes to our economy have wreaked havoc with our political coalitions. While this itself isn't necessarily a bad development, it is something we will reckon with for years to come, so deserves some reflection. I'll focus primarily on the conservative coalition, because it experiences the most disruption.

Please stop abuse of 'Karen'
Dear Editor,

When someone is born, most of the time, they are lovingly given their name by their parents or another loved one. Our names set the tone for our unique, individual personalities.

1,200+ Karens that I've had the privilege to get to know are intelligent, kind and caring people.

However, now that our name has been hijacked, we are being viciously attacked - verbally, mentally and even physically.

Honoring Women
In 1930, Zula Nicely wrote an "Open Letter" to the Plain Dealer-Republican (the newspaper now known at the North Vernon Plain Dealer). In that Thursday, October 30 newspaper, she wrote about her candidacy for Center Township Trustee, running on the Republican Party. During the course of the campaign, her opponent, a Mr. Fall, had apparently made some remarks about how "a woman cannot perform the duties of Township Trustee."

We learned about this local talent through helping compile our list of 100 Prominent Women of Jennings County celebrated in the Dec. 31, 2020 Plain Dealer & Sun with a special four-page pull-out in Section B. Jennings County Economic Development Director Kathy Ertel proposed this project earlier this year as a way to commemorate the 100th anniversary of women suffrage.

Hang in There
You can put our name down to receive either of the two vaccines that are or will soon be available, although it will, apparently, be a long wait.

We put our data into a news survey that calculates where in line we would be go receive the protective medicine and discovered that here in Indiana, there are over 2.5 million people ahead of us and that here in Jennings County, we would be 19,000th in line.

Technology takes freedoms forward, law catches up
As it made the quantum leap from parchment to paper through the electronic era to digital formats, First Amendment law on freedom of expression has lagged behind technology.
