Issue: December 15, 2016

Hey everybody!

You probably know that the so-called "Electoral College" is not a

degree-granting institution of higher learning. But it's also not the

ironclad institution of American democracy that some people think it is.

In this week's RN&R feature story, news editor Dennis Myers debunks some

of the myths about the Electoral College.

Also in this week's issue, goofball film critic Bob Grimm picks his

favorite holiday movie characters, music writer Kent Irwin profiles a

surf rock group from Lake Tahoe, and restaurant reviewer Todd South

tries out some new grub at a local Vietnamese joint–with mixed results.

As always, be sure to pick up a newsprint copy of the paper for

exclusive columns, cartoons and wrapping paper for all those presents

you still need to buy.

Thanks for reading! If it weren't for you, we'd probably have to take up
