The race between incumbent 32nd District State Senator Gary Nodler, R-Joplin, and Kim Wright, the Joplin social worker who is running as an independent, is explored in an article in today's Joplin Globe.
Though I have not seen today's print edition, the internet headline is simply "Nodler vs. Wright." In the past, the Globe headlines on nearly every article about Ms. Wright have referred to her as "woman" and not mentioned her by name. It may just be an accident, but hopefully the Globe is moving away from some of its sexist attitudes.
