Wolter: Here comes 2017; work hard, for nothing is certain
The Minnesota State High School League, in its indisputable wisdom, has decreed that the state tournament experience is too awesome to be offered only to a select few. This is why those bygone days of single-class state tournaments has become a thing of the past -- remembered only...

Disheveled Theologian: An epiphany waiting to happen
When I was a little girl the Seattle Symphony used to come up to Orcas Island, Wash., where I lived and put on a concert in the school gym. They’d come on a Sunday afternoon, sit on folding chairs on the scuffed-up floor, and fill that space -- which echoed far more often with the...

The Disheveled Theologian: Home sweet home
It’s hard to write when your eyes are swimming with tears. The letters on the keyboard get blurry and I must rely on the muscle memory of my fingers. Oh, how I remember the repetitions in typing class when I was in 10th grade. I can still hear the teacher’s voice chanting: jkl;...

Column: Bill-gate, again
WASHINGTON -- But of course Bill Clinton wants his wife to become president of the United States and make history as the nation's first female commander in chief. Why, he'd be pleased as punch and proud as proud can be. Plus, it would be tons of fun to return to the White House as...

WASHINGTON — Somehow, it’s always the parents’ fault. We are too lax, except when we are too helicoptery. We coddle the kids too much, except when we drive them into neurotic overachievement. We are enablers. No, we are Tiger Moms. The societal urge to blame is matched only...
