The Hibbing Tribune of Sunday, April 28, had a “police report” and Aaron Brown’s column that were interesting, the skeletonized police report was the street or avenue address and type of incident, but not the names of people charged and what they were charged with. This doesn’t cut it, it seems in my opinion, that it is getting “politically correct” or fear of liability claims have seeped into the report.

After reading Aaron Brown’s column “Tyranny by copycats” I remembered that Bill Moyers had a TV show on Public TV a few years ago. (He was the press secretary for President Lyndon Johnson in the 1960s). This particular show was about ALEC, an acronym for American Legislative Executive Committee — an organization of billionaires that guided and financed lobbyists in state legislatures to author, write and lobby their own bills through the state capitals.

Mr. Moyer stated that a lot of state legislators and state senators belong to this organization, but don’t advertise it.

Of course, things like this happened in the past, but that doesn’t make it right or fair.
