Notice to Readers

The Free Press in this issue--and possibly in upcoming issues--has a page sponsored by the Green Party. While we welcome it's inclusion in the Free Press, we also need to point out that it is not in any way editorially related to the Free Press, and will include news and views from a Green Party perspective. On regular Free Press pages, we will still at times publish independent viewpoints on the Green Party and related issues.
