    Should the grand jury have been transparent or secretive --- concerning the evidence presented by the district attorney, etcetera? Once again, we have a Travis County grand jury indicting yet another high-profile Republican. One was Tom Delay (then House Majority Leader from 2003 to 2005) and now presidential aspirant Rick Perry, governor of Texas. The evidence that is presented is under the discretion of the district/prosecuting attorney. This attorney has strong control over the process and the room itself, and there is no one present to provide counter argument(s), and, finally, there is no judge present. If you are a...

    Missouri's governor ordered the National Guard onto the streets of Ferguson early Monday after another night of violence following the shooting by police of an unarmed black teen. "Tonight, a day of hope, prayers, and peaceful protests was marred by the violent criminal acts of an organized and growing number of individuals, many from outside the community and state, whose actions are putting the residents and businesses of Ferguson at risk," Gov. Jay Nixon said in a statement. "Given these deliberate, coordinated and intensifying violent attacks on lives and property in Ferguson, I am directing the highly capable men and...

    Somewhere in a north St. Louis County cemetery choked with weeds and surrounded by trash, where toppled tombstones poke through the brush, lies a legend of history. Harriet Scott, it turns out, is buried here, somewhere, at Greenwood Cemetery. For years, no one knew where she lay. They were uncertain even of when she died. Some assumed she rested next to her husband, Dred Scott, in St. Louis. His grave can be found at a tidy, well-marked spot in Calvary Cemetery, where only the grave of playwright Tennessee Williams receives more visitors.

    St. Louis ComPost-Dispatch says today: "the bar system is a poor yardstick of judicial performance. The voters should retain all of the judges, while the bar comes up with a better system." Of course I agree that relying on the bar ratings is folly, but I hope the Post and other liberals here are disappointed that we don't follow their recommendation to retain all the judges! I'm inclined to vote against ALL of them, but I have to think there are a few conservatives out here in the County and don't want to hurt them. ANYBODY KNOW WHERE THERE'S A...
