I am a senior at Ketchikan High School and I support Greg Middag. I believe his views for education will help students achieve higher skills and be more prepared for the world at large.

The following editorial appeared in today's Washington Post: Once again, Thursday, the awesome strength and unpredictability of democratic will was on display, this time in Belgrade. Just 10 days ago, the autocratic regime of Slobodan Milosevic seemed nearly impregnable, immune to public opinion by virtue of his control of the police.

The scenes recalled democratic uprisings in Manila and Seoul, Berlin and Moscow. But they were no less inspiring for their familiarity.
