Here is the first political column I wrote for the Medicine Hat News.  My "vision" for the series is some "retro-punditry," back to a time when people actually listened to one another and engaged in civil dialogue and lived by the motto, "I disagree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it." I know there was no Golden Age, but there was a time when it wasn't quite like this.
