Column: The Losers’ Consent 


This is the first installment of a two-part series on the Oresteia and American politics. While this column will summarize the ancient Greek tragedy, the next will seek to apply its lessons to the upcoming 2020 election.  “Each [destructive] act feeds off the one before and nourishes the next.”-Peter Burian  In the 5th century BCE, the ancient Greek playwright Aeschylus […]

Editorial: For Them, Not Us

With every article that is written for this paper, there are usually one of three objectives: to get the reader to think, to feel or to act.

Now there’s “the Squad,” four Democrats, women of color, who have found their way into the headlines with their efforts to push the Democrat Party to the left (another label, we suppose) and their […]

Editorial: Movie Permit on the Right Track

I’ve said it here before, so I’ll try to be brief, but having a permit process in place for movie productions in East Aurora is a good idea.
