Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Gratifying to see McClatchy running a major piece on the corrupting effect of the current campaign finance system.    Talk about having an effect at the the margin!  Every US citizen should write their senators and congressman and ask how much they have received in contributions from failed or bailed-out institutions since 2000.  Cc your state's newspaper of record.
