Arizona Gov. Jan Perry’s now famous pause

It is somewhat painful to watch.
I like the comments I read from those who watched the debate on TV. They said her pauses are not what bother them. It is her inability or perhaps, refusal to answer direct questions. She has now said she will no longer debate her opponent. This candidate, and many others, have to ask themselves: What are they doing to democracy? Those who want everyone to re-visit the Constitution should ask candidates that will not answer simple questions on policy, or refuse to air their views in the public, or participate in a campaign, to examine how they are hurting democracy and the function of government.

About Steve Scauzillo

I love journalism. I've been working in journalism for 32 years. I love communicating and now, that includes writing about environment, transportation and the foothill/Puente Hills communities of Hacienda Heights, Rowland Heights, Walnut and Diamond Bar. I write a couple of columns, one on fridays in Opinion and the other, The Green Way, in the main news section. Send me ideas for stories. Or comments. I was opinion page editor for 12 years so I enjoy a good opinion now and then.
