Threat Against Democracy (TAD). One of the cornerstones of our democracy is a free and independent press. Limiting the press would be, in my opinion, a Threat Against Democracy (TAD). I find recent comments about possible actions against journalists who are critical of the new administration troubling. How concerned should I be? Maybe just a TAD.

Threat Against Democracy (TAD). In 1972 I cast my first presidential ballot – for Nixon. However, as Watergate unfolded I became convinced that the actions of Nixon and his confederates constituted a Threat Against Democracy (TAD). Today I watch with dismay as civil discourse, respect, and finding common ground are giving away on all sides to vile personal attacks, hate, and spite. I don’t know how concerned I should be. Maybe just a TAD.
