Another failure in Washington

Of all the nauseating things about the Super Committee's inability to reach a deficit-cutting deal, perhaps the worst is that the leaders of both parties have apparently spent months anticipating such an impasse and trying to lay groundwork to use the committee's failure to advance their own causes in the 2012 election.

Why we need a Y

To those of you who don't know me, I am an Internal Medicine physician who has practiced at the hospital here in Camden for the past four years. I am the mother of three young children, and I live here in downtown Camden. I have followed the debate about the YMCA closely, and for many reasons, I support this project because I care about my patients, my family, and our community.
