Knowledge will forever govern ignorance: And a people who mean to be their own Governors, must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives." -- James Madison, 1822 Every day between 3 and 5 p.m., you hear it in our newsroom: On the second floor of a corner building at Wilson Street and Brand Boulevard the sound of information flows from reporters' ringing telephones to the clickety-clack of their computer keyboards.

Will seems disturbed that a few "attention-hungry critics" of the Empire Center Project Environmental Impact Report -- otherwise known as concerned citizens -- who spoke at the Jan. 31 Planning Board Hearing are heralding a new era of this "community's infinitely harsher attitude toward all future business development."
