Readers write: Thoughts from readers on columnist Ruth Walker

Readers write: Thoughts from readers on columnist Ruth WalkerFollowing Ruth Walkers passing, I wanted to pass on a sincere appreciation for a woman who made my day almost every time I read her Verbal Energy column. In fact, truth to tell, it was usually the first thing I turned to when my Monitor Weekly arrived. (No offense, all you serious reporters and bureau chiefs I got to you eventually.)

Congress has an 'et tu?' moment as it grapples with sexual harrassment

Congress has an 'et tu?' moment as it grapples with sexual harrassmentNow, its the US Capitol where a wave of complaints about sexual abuse and harassment have flooded the stately halls and engulfed a sitting senator, Democrat Al Franken of Minnesota. Women lawmakers and aides say inappropriate sexual behavior has long been pervasive on the Hill, largely kept in the shadows amid an insular, old-boys-club culture that persists to this day. I was of a generation of survivors that never said a word, Rep. Ann McLane Kuster (D) of New Hampshire told reporters after she and a bipartisan group of lawmakers on Thursday introduced legislation to make it easier to file sexual harassment complaints in Congress.
