Helen Thomas Is Writing Again

Seven months after resigning from her post as a White House columnist for Hearst because of controversy over her comment that Israeli Jews should return "home" to Poland and Germany, 90-year-old Helen Thomas is writing again.

The Falls Church News-Press in northern Virginia has brought Thomas on to write a weekly political affairs column. Her first piece for the newspaper is headlined "Privatizing Social Security Again?" She's against any such idea.
