Tom Cantlon is a local columnists for The Daily Courier in Prescott, Arizona.
I’ve written a couple of times about an economic opportunity that Prescott has an excellent shot at, better than almost any other place.
Negotiations about the Dells development continue. I’ve recently talked with people in Save the Dells and city government about how value is determined in those negotiations.
There’s a lot of talk about socialism and questioning of capitalism, and it’s almost all wrong.
Democrats are hemming and hawing about whether to start impeachment of the president, but they’re missing the point.
We are watching our ability to be civilized getting hollowed out before our eyes. It is amazing how fragile it is.
On Trump: Two years ago I wrote to friends to expect a legally inconclusive result from the Mueller report because of course there is no document of Trump explicitly promising Russia something for their help.
It’s our fault. The fact that Russian internet trolls were able to influence the election, the fact that those who spread political divisiveness can use stories that are made up or exaggerated and get them seen far and wide, the fact that violent groups can get their message across to so many more susceptible minds than in the past, all of that is because we use social media so much.
A leading state Republican wrote a recent opinion piece encouraging Republicans to take climate change seriously, but he framed it in a way that is, remarkably, simultaneously positive and sad.
Ha, ha, that’s almost a joke, isn’t it? There hardly is any coverage of labor issues in most U.S. news.
I went to the event on Jan. 29 where lots of locals engaged in a “visioning” session to develop a picture of what locals would want Prescott, particularly downtown, to be like in the future.
