Letter from the Editor - PAUSE Magazine

In this day and age, you find that there are topics in life that transcend social lines and economic ones within our country. In my opinion, the topic is much like this magazine. Something that can be found on the nightstands, coffee tables and I don't kid myself, even the bathrooms holders of the American housewife, to the upper echelons of the high society mavens and matriarchs. The hot button issue that is the FRONTLINE Act, which is the latest of government's projects. You can hear it on the lips and minds of everyone from the server in your corner diner, to the CEO of some fortune 500 businessman who frequents it. It's even apparently on the lips of handsome men who like to visit lofty places and make brash requests. Yes, I'm on my soapbox again, dear readers. That's the upside to having ones own business. I still promise that I will not do so very often and that next issue will have something more light hearted and frivolous to make up for the gravity that I've brought to this page.

I also won't lay out the details to the FRONTLINE Act as I'm confidant that many a person has heard the arguments over television and radio programs that have tirelessly debated over whether this is a step back for the American people, for the good of the country and in dealing with dangerous evolved individuals. If not, I'm sure you all have access to ways of gaining said details in it's variety of mediums or you can go online to pausemagazine.com where we can direct you to many of said sources. Many a group of people with communal ideals would surely tell us all that the world is going to hell if FRONTLINE makes its way through the judicial process and becomes a reality. Others will tell you that it's the best way to deal with the problems facing New York in the past and in the future. That is the thing about opinions. They're like noses: everyone has one.

You'll not find that here. You'll not find me textually expressing my support nor my disagreement on the topic that reigns near supreme these days as it comes down to the last days before the votes. Rather, you'll find me urging you - my readers - to become educated on the matters for yourself. To pick up a newspaper, or log onto the Internet, even turn up the radio in your car or even listen to a podcast dedicated to both side of the topic. To write your local politician and representatives, to make your own informed choices and not that of someone who tells you what to do and what to think, and let them know what you think in this topic, this issue and how you would vote. They do represent you after all. What you will find, dear readers, is me urging you to keep buying my magazine and enjoying the pages between it's covers as much as I enjoy, and the rest of my employee's do in producing it for you. I'll leave the politics to those who know better.
