Editor's note 1/19/17

The inauguration of a new flamboyant, iconoclastic but unpredictable president this week has prompted from progressives a most American reaction – to protest and organize. Many from Springfield will join thousands from around the nation in Washington, D.C., for demonstrations on the day after the inauguration. Meanwhile, Springfield Call to Action is planning a rally for 1 p.m. Saturday on the Old State Capitol plaza to address issues of “racial, religious, social, gender, sexual orientation, environmental and economic justice” (see p. 8). This is all part of the peaceful transfer of power that follows a democratic election. It is what Americans do. – Fletcher Farrar, editor and publisher
