An independent filmmaker announced one day last week that he had cast James Dean in a new movie, set during the Vietnam War, to be made in the very near future. This is not the first time a deceased performer has been so used.

‘Readers continue to shower The New York Times with money. Advertisers, not so much.” So began The New York Times’ third quarter update Wednesday. It’s a familiar refrain for today’s newspapers, especially smaller community newspapers which have neither the Times’ scale or technological prow…
The controversy over the regulation of pollution from coal mining and coal-fired power plants, highlighted by the dilemma Sulphur Springs now faces, ultimately comes down to protecting people or protecting profits. Texas is America’s seventh largest producer of coal with 29 strip mines acros…

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg in a speech last month at Georgetown University said free expression is the foundation for Facebook's refusal to take down factually incorrect political advertisements. Those who agree say Facebook shouldn't be a free-speech moderator, regardless of how true an a…

In preparation of Tuesday’s election, in place of an editorial today, we once again present the 10 propositions to be voted on.
