As an Independent voter, I just want to say thank you to Tina Dupuy and columnists of her ability. She contributes a balance to the various conservative views printed. I find her intelligently witty and factual for the most part and an offset to some very conservative viewpoints (often witty themselves) of contributors such as businessman, John Reynolds. I often read his many, many commentaries and am very glad he is exercising his right to state those heavily Republican views. As long as the Tina Dupuys continue to exercise their same rights and give us some balance in the media, we should come out all right in the next presidential election. All right, that is, as long as most of the voters in this country take the time to read (and listen) to ALL sides before any voting decision is made.
