    It’s going to take all of us
    On Nov. 15, Kenneth L. Randall wrote a letter to the editor telling President Barack Obama’s supporters not to expect “white flags” from conservatives. Well, I hope not. This is not the time to give up.

    The rigors of the campaign are still fresh, but for newly elected House members and senators, the hard part is just beginning. Already, they’re inundated with advice on the issues they’ll be facing: the fiscal cliff, crises overseas, how to behave in a highly partisan Congress.

  • Relentless efforts deserve recognition
