Mr. Campion,

Your take on music, especially musical icons is always exceptional. (CHARLES EDWARD ANDERSON “CHUCK” BERRY – 1926 – 2017 – Issue: 3/29/17) This may be your finest. And what a subject to hit a home run. Chuck Berry is more than a rock and roll icon, more than …

This article should be called what lawyers can teach us about national illusions. (“ALTERNATIVE FACTS” – Issue: 2/4/17) Have you never talked to any, read briefs or heard closing arguments in a trial? We are highly skilled at providing “alternate facts” or perceptions thereof to suit our clients’ needs and …

Mr. Campion,

If ever in this time of bizarre and idiotic, criminal and blatantly megalomaniacal candidates for president a voice like this is needed it is now! (Scott Garrett Needs An Ass Kicking – Issue: 10/26/16) I applaud your nerve and verve and all those things in taking on your …

James,

It is hard to believe that Hillary Clinton is still fending off a 74-year-old socialist senator from one of the smallest states in the union. (WHY BERNIE SANDERS MATTERS—Issue: 6/1/16) This is why Bernie Sanders matters—he’s still here! And I fear he is not going anywhere before, during or …

I loved this column. (PRINCE ROGERS NELSON—1958 – 2016—Issue: 4/27/16) And all of your work when someone of this measure of talent and influence on our pop culture dies. You are able to frame it so beautifully. It is quite a gift. And as Prince gave of himself through his …

I am so disappointed. I was rooting so hard for Bernie Sanders to be competitive before New Jersey voted, but he is getting slaughtered and there is no way he can win this. Reading this column is very depressing, and sadly, true (MADAM SHOO-IN—THE SEQUEL—Issue: 3/23/16). This is why I …

Mr. Campion,

I believe your flippant response to these, as you put it so flippantly, “weekly shootings” is disturbing. (NEW TWIST ON WEEKLY SHOOTING—Issue: 9/2/15) And not because as a reader of your weekly rants I think you put too much emphasis on the greater social and economic issues prevalent …

Mr. Campion,

I have been reading this column for years now and I know, as well as I know all of your readers over that time do, how much the Supreme Court ruling on marriage equality means to you. (EQUALITY…OF COURSE – Issue: 7/8/15) This is a landmark decision for …

I think you bit off more metaphoric morsels than you can chew this time, Campion. (FLAGS ARE BULLSHIT—Issue: 7/1/15) Of course a flag, like all symbols, have only empiric value. This is the point of a symbol. However, once as a society we accept this value, anything attached to that …
