  • Return of the Secret Donors

    Jill Abramson, New York Times | October 20, 2010

    To old political hands, wise to the ways of candidates and money, 1972 was a watershed year. Richard M. Nixon’s re-election campaign was awash in cash, secretly donated by corporations and individuals...

  • Oil Disaster Spreads

    Rocky Kistner, NRDC | October 20, 2010

    For six months, I have lived and worked near ground zero of the worst oil disaster in US history.

    George Soros, Wall Street Journal | October 26, 2010

    We should invest in effective education rather than ineffective arrest and incarceration. Our marijuana laws are clearly doing more harm than good.
