Noted and passed

• Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich vowed that he would conduct a positive campaign for the presidency, and he did just that -- until his numbers started dropping. Gingrich, who polled well both in Iowa and New Hampshire at one time, unleashed a series of vitriolic ads against Mitt Romney as Gingrich's star began to fade. Other GOP candidates on the right have done the same as Romney has gained strength. These days, a positive message seems to last only as long as a candidate is doing well.

Partin's letter insightful

Kudos to Councilman Pat Partin for his very thorough and well-written letter in this newspaper. He gave excellent accounting and insight into the reasoning of City Council regarding the proposed construction(s) to take Camden to a new level. The only thing about his letter that I do not understand is why he waited so long to present it. It would have been an even greater help to our understanding had he provided it several months ago. Alas, better late than never.
