A 1st-century leadership model for the 21st century
Over the past couple of decades we have slowly come to realize that efficient organizations thrive under leadership that builds teamwork and community, involves others in decision-making, commits to growth of employees and seeks to serve the outside community.

The high cost of low taxes
The Juneau Empire recently ran an editorial that congratulated Alaska for being the lowest taxed state in the nation. While technically true, the editorial is seriously misleading: Our tax burden may be light, but we pay a high price for the services our state government provides. In fact, if we had a state income tax we would pay less for the same services.

Give back the children
The following editorial appeared in today's Washington Post: A year ago, the long-overlooked plight of dozens of American parents forcibly separated from their children finally got a moment of high-level attention. President Clinton, meeting with German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, pushed hard for Germany to mend its obstructionist behavior in numerous cases in which children have been abducted to Germany by a parent and then kept there for years, abetted by local courts, in defiance of American custody orders and international treaty obligations.

Mass murder in Nepal
The following editorial appeared in Wednesday's Providence Journal: Not since the Austrian crown prince Rudolf shot his mistress and himself at his hunting lodge at Mayerling (1889) has there been an incident such as the massacre of King Birendra of Nepal, Queen Aiswarya and several members of the royal family, by the crown prince Dipendra, who then shot and wounded himself. In a grotesque second act to this grisly drama, Dipendra, as he lay dying in a hospital, was proclaimed the new king by Nepal's privy council. But now that Dipendra, too, has died, his uncle, Gyanendra, the late monarch's brother, becomes the king of Nepal.
