Column: In Arkansas, a military record is no magic bullet
WASHINGTON — Sen. Mark Pryor, the embattled Democratic incumbent in Arkansas, made a serious gaffe in March when he questioned Republican opponent Tom Cotton’s reliance on military service as a campaign theme. While praising the congressman for serving, Pryor told a TV interviewer...

Column: Bill Maher’s tiny point
WASHINGTON — When my neighbor gleefully reported that Bill Maher had dedicated a searing monologue to me for a column about the Donald Sterling/Cliven Bundy rants, my first thought was, Nah. If I tussled with everybody who tossed a brick through the window, I’d never get the draperies...

Column: Democrats’ revolting equal-pay games
WASHINGTON — Here’s a radical notion: It is simultaneously possible to believe that women are entitled to equal pay and to not support the Paycheck Fairness Act. Not that you’d know it from the rhetoric President Obama and fellow Democrats are happily flinging at Republicans...

Doug Wolter: Twins fans need convincing
In March, a young man’s thoughts turn to spring. Old men, too. So even though everybody else is fixated on the NCAA men’s basketball tournament, naturally I’m thinking about baseball. The Minnesota Twins open the 2014 regular season on March 31 at the Chicago White Sox, and...

Column: Bubba Bobby Jindal waves war flag
WASHINGTON — This town can get pretty wound up when a politician misbehaves. Given some of the reactions to Bobby Jindal’s off-script remarks Monday, you’d think he’d been caught with a mirror on his shoe in the ladies’ restroom. No, it was much worse than that. Hide...

Doug Wolter: West football is much too much to toss aside
If the powers at Minnesota West Community and Technical College are serious about eliminating football, a brilliant first step would be to suspend the program first, and then do the obligatory review later. I would assert that a suspension-first philosophy puts the cart before the...

Jetsons football? No, not yet
It's never too early to think about football season and to speculate whether the NFL will ever resemble that episode of "The Jetsons" where the players are programmable robots. Personally, I think professional football - with real people - will continue to exist for our grandchildren's...

SCOTT RALL COLUMN: Disappearing pasture land accelerates
All across Minnesota and the upper Midwest for that matter, pasture land is disappearing. It is not getting sucked up into an alien spaceship or anything like that but it is disappearing nonetheless. What is making it disappear? The answer is some more endless rows of corn and beans. Seed...
