    Nonpartisan voting would be easier, cheaper

              Consequences

              Local columnist Jimmy Reed discusses how nature and politics are much the same in that there are consequences for actions. Reed wonders if America’s leaders are refusing to see what Americans are beginning to see: consequences. (May 25, 2010, Page 4)
