As 2010 draws to a close, OtherWords wishes you and your families a happy holiday season. We really appreciate your patience as we underwent a transformation this year. We’re operating under new management and a new name, and bringing you our top-notch commentaries and cartoons via a website with a completely different look and organizational system. But rest assured, we’re carrying on with Minuteman Media’s tradition of distributing robust editorial packages in final week of December and first week of January.

In this week’s OtherWords editorial package, Sanho Tree points out some under-reported risks posed by the latest WikiLeaks document dump while Marie Brill explains why boosting ethanol with taxpayer subsidies is a fiscal mistake that hurts the environmental and spreads hunger. Get all this and more in your inbox by subscribing to our weekly newsletter. If you haven’t signed up yet, please do.

As always, these columns, cartoons, and op-eds are available for all to run in their newspapers and new media outlets free of charge. But our operations do cost money. Please consider making a donation to support our work. Any amount you can give will be used wisely and effectively.
