"Public discussion is a political duty; this should be a fundamental principle of American government." -- Justice Louis Brandeis
Whether it’s focused on a plan to contain health care costs, the latest education proposal, or the governor's race now getting underway, freewheeling debate and discussion of pressing issues is vital to civic life in Massachusetts. Informed and well-mannered, but strongly argued, debate is what we hope to capture on the Conversations page. Visit here to follow the debate – and to join it by weighing in with your own take on issues of the day.
