Thankful for free press Thank you for your June 7 column, "Telephone Game 2.0." I do not have a Facebook account, and I also do not use Twitter or any other social media website. I wonder if we would have our current president if there was no social media? My father worked for many years as the... [Read More]

INFORUM In a column published June 15, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., recounts a visit to a farm near Holloway, Minn., which she characterizes as the "backbone of our rural communities." It... [Read More]

If fiction is the lie that tells a deeper truth, the TV crime genre has been, for the most part, the lie that simply tells a lie. As a storyteller (Veena) and an advocate for racial justice (Rashad), we collaborated for the past two-and-a-half years in an attempt to reimagine the roles of cops, victims,... [Read More]

Imagine going through or witnessing something so horrible, terrifying, and outside of our typical experiences, that you cannot seem to get over the fear. It begins to consume you, dominating... [Read More]

It's warm out. Fancy a road trip? Let's take a look at a few options for combining that excursion with some live performance. If you've been reading my column all these years (and thank you), you'll know that, most summers, I hit both American Players Theatre in Spring Green, Wisconsin. (less than... [Read More]
Q: I read your column "How to Undo a Roth Contribution If Your Income is Too High." But if your income is too high, can you -- under the new tax law -- still make backdoor Roth contributions by converting money from a traditional IRA to a Roth? If so, would this be a tax-free conversion if you... [Read More]

The escalating trade war between the United States and China poses crucial, though unanswerable, questions:Is this the beginning of the end of the post-World War II international trading system or will the present arrangements survive as they have for 70 years?Almost certainly, historians will judge favorably the postwar expansion of trade. It has never been completely "free," but has been liberalized substantially by removing many tariffs and quotas. It helped lift hundreds of... [Read More]
Bipartisanship is a rare word in our politics these days. We rarely see prominent Democrats and Republicans working together to create solutions to problems. Fortunately, Ohio has Sens. Sherrod Brown and Rob Portman working hard to protect and restore Lake Erie in a bipartisan manner.Earlier this year, the Trump administration announced a plan to drastically slash the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative by 90 percent, to $30 million. As a co-chair of the Great Lakes Task Force,... [Read More]

"Illegals" have faces.This is what Republicans are learning to their chagrin amid mounting international outrage over the new policy of separating immigrant children from their families at our southern border. For years, the party has pretended otherwise. It has denied undocumented immigrants their personhood, casting them instead as an abstract threat — rape! gangs! murder! — against anyone who makes the mistake of compassion.Now reality is blasting...

As Trump and his minions double-down on separating families to enforce immigration laws, few, including those who rarely agree on anything, are buying in. Watch video This is an opinion column. Mr. U.S. Attorney General: please consider this a sincere and heartfelt invitation to attend my Sunday morning Bible study class the next time you're in Birmingham. And bring your friends. I mean it. Really. Like Jeff Sessions, I am a Christian. I attended one church or another throughout most of my life (alas, like many folks, there were gaps)... [Read More]

Albany I recently poked fun at Cynthia Nixon for suggesting, with Manhattan myopia, that upstate begins near Ithaca. That column included a tongue-in-cheek quiz to help identify an upstate mindset. Quick example: When people refer to "the subway," do you assume they're talking about your favorite restaurant? Stephanie Miner would never suggest that upstate New York begins in Tompkins County. The former Syracuse mayor entered the governor's race Monday with a decidedly upstate perspective. When I spoke to her, she was even armed with an additional upstate quiz question: When you enter a house, do you automatically... [Read More]
