Corporate irresponsibility over GMOs

Corporate irresponsibility over GMOs

By MICHAEL GERSON Pass any Chipotle these days—and it is my gastronomic preference to pass rather than enter—and you will see signs claiming credit for removing ingredients that contain GMOs (genetically modified organisms) from the menu. It is the first big chain to do so, and probably not the last. The business press has pronounced […]

The poor get a moment

The poor get a moment

By E.J. DIONNE JR. Will we regard poverty as a haunting national problem, or will the focus groups continue to tell politicians of all stripes to talk only about the middle class because mentioning the poor is politically toxic?

Paper’s endorsement is puzzling

By GREG EGO While I support the right of the Keizertimes to endorse candidates for local elections, I believe you got it wrong for Keizer Fire District Position 4.

Seeking mutual respect amid conflict

Seeking mutual respect amid conflict

By MICHAEL GERSON The sign of a first-rate intelligence, according to F. Scott Fitzgerald, is “the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function.” When it comes to Islam and blasphemy, many Americans are having trouble accepting even consistent ones.

Ohio’s Kasich is best candidate in 2016

Any natural-born citizen of the United States who has reached the age of 35 years can be president.  President Obama, limited to two terms, must leave the highest political office in the land with a new American taking his place in January, 2017.
