It's official: people who work are now horrible and greedy -- at least if they work a union job.

Midterm elections are over, and here at the Journal, we’re a tad bit confused. No, it’s not the fact that the Republicans took over the House – saw that one coming. And it has nothing to do with people voting yes on Question 1 in Massachusetts (although we’ll get to that malarkey next issue)....

If the walls around us were crumbling and we needed to be saved, would you reject assistance from someone solely because he or she was different? If you think about it, that’s the general idea behind Don’t Ask Don’t Tell – that someone who is openly different cannot help or save you. Not only...

October is LGBTQ Pride Month, so we at the Journal are extremely confused as to why such negative news has been affecting the gay community lately. This is supposed to be a month of celebrating diversity and aspiring for equality, but recent events have seemed to diminish both of those intentions. ...
