So where’s Thomas Paine when you really need him?
Tuesday, April 15, 2014 — Ah, how I fondly remember my first days at the Lassen County Times 15 or so years ago when the county entered its first election cycle in my memory.
Out of the blue one afternoon Dave Moller, then managing editor of the Times, slammed down his phone and shouted out across the buzzing newsroom to no one in particular, “I hate elections!” Trying to fill his very big shoes, I think I’ve learned some of what he was yelling about.
Readers should know the Times does not endorse candidates. That’s our policy, so you won’t find us making recommendations or suggestions saying vote for this or that candidate.
