A forum for Princeton residents to express opinions about local and national issues
Question of the Week: "What are your views on how 60 Minutes handled the George Bush National Guard'story?"
"I think it's a myth - I think it obscured the real issue, which is what the President actually did during his National Guard service."
Maria Klawe, McCosh Circle
"I think it is irrelevant to the campaign for the Presidency. Leave it alone. It's just not that important - it is not a big issue."
Jean Crane, Cameron Court
"I am very surprised that Dan Rather would go forward with the story without checking it not going to the source of the information. That was lacking on his part and CBS. Of course they are fed false information, but it was a'terrible mistake not to check the original sources."
Jose Alcantara, Mulberry Row
"I don't think that the election should be decided based upon what happened in Vietnam."
Mark Harris, Audubon Lane
"I think it was a distraction that was set up by the Republicans and the machine that they have going as a distraction as to what are the real issues: bumbling of the war in Iraq, the economy, health care, and all the other issues that are important to most Americans. I am disappointed that the news media decided to spend so much time on something which, in the end, is not very important."
Ellen Sorrin, Cherry Brook Drive
