Selection 1:

Our democracy is certainly in horrible disrepair, and the disengagement of so many, along with the flight into superficial forms of entertainment and life satisfaction, is understandable. But the deep love of and commitment to democracy expressed by great artists and the long tradition of scruitinizing the ravages of our imperialism are strong.

Selection 2:

Now that the oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico is extending into a second month, blame is starting to be placed on President Barack Obama and the federal government. Perhaps some of this is fair, but let's face it, we're all responsible for this environmental apocalypse. That's because we all have demanded the excessive use of oil and gasoline.

Have you owned a gas-guzzling SUV? Well then, you own some of the blame. Do you drive yourself to work rather than taking public transportation or car-pooling? Then you share in the blame, too.

In retrospect, this well should not have been drilled in the first place. So let's all learn from this mistake and start taking conservation and alternative energy sources seriously and prevent this from happening again.
