Football players from pee-wee through the professional level learn early in the game about the talent and toughness of the player across the line of scrimmage from him.
In the 19th and 20th centuries, it was not uncommon for an African-American man to be lynched on the false accusation of a woman. Today, a man can still be “hung” by the same unproven cry of accusation; just ask Judge Clarence Thomas or Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
I read in the newspaper that Gov. Scott Walker said Tony Evers would release murderers and rapists if he cuts the prison population by half. Let's talk facts, not scary, misleading truths.
If the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation process has revealed anything, it is that there's an antidote for disaffection toward Republicans: Give Democrats the upper hand for about five minutes.
As a former journalist who still believes in fair and accurate reporting, I am truly annoyed with the journalistic ethics lacking in today’s news cycle. Too often, journalists, commentators and media outlets are pressured to be first, rather than right. The immediacy of 24-hour news outlets …
In the presidential election of 1800, John Adams’ camp, through the Connecticut Courant newspaper, said that should Thomas Jefferson win the presidency, the United States would become a nation where “murder, robbery, rape, adultery and incest will openly be taught and practiced.”
Alarm bells across Wisconsin and the country are sounding for conservatives! I believe the liberal methodical “RESIST” movement is intending to steam roll and destroy personal lives in its effort to derail our current government at all levels. Just look at Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmatio…
One of the dubious advantages of a Supreme Court nomination battle is how it brings into the open some of the vicious, ideological arguments that are normally hidden by shame and discretion. That has certainly been true on the right, with some figures demonstrating a callousness toward the charge of attempted rape that would presumably change if their own children were even remotely threatened.
“The worst financial crisis since the Great Depression” has become standard shorthand for the 2008 global financial crash and resulting severe recession. This fall, we mark the 10th anniversary of the 2008 benchmark bankruptcy of investment house Lehman Brothers.
Two remarkably different articles on dressing for business appeared in The Wall Street Journal on the same day. Both purported to offer advice.
That tweet storm about the national anthem and NFL players that involved all four major party candidates for Wisconsin governor and lieutenant governor earlier this month ended in an apology last week.
It’s not a secret weapon of Wisconsin Democrats, but the party’s Emerge program gives women wondering about politics the tools to decide whether to run for local or state office, how to campaign and—often—win.
Giving mice a rethink: That’s what I’m doing, having just watched an amazing new 3D film, “Backyard Wilderness,” now playing hourly at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City.
This is a difficult column to write. Some readers will incorrectly view it as critical of an institution I have the highest regard for.
A U.S.-China tariff war is sure to produce very real economic consequences, and political fallout, in both nations. It also presents an opportunity to reexamine the trade relationship between the world’s two largest economies and perhaps set a new course that would address some of the elepha…
I am a junior at Janesville Parker High School and a swimmer on the Parker/Evansville team. I have been swimming for eight years, and, in the off-season, I swim club for Beloit Tide. In the summer, I swim four hours a day, and in the spring and winter, two hours every weekday. During Parker’…
Paul Kristoffersen writes that he can see a wave of women voters voting for Democrats ("Hopefully, women come to the rescue on Election Day," Tuesday). Fifty-three percent of white, suburban women knew they were voting for a vain and vulgar liar, cheat and thief, yet they gave him their vote…
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is not just a partisan talking point, and proposals to end ICE are dangerous. ICE is a full functioning arm of our government that does much more than just patrol the border. They protect our communities from threats that we do not even know about. Th…
The Federal Election Commission would prefer not to know. On a party-line vote, the FEC has voted not to pursue enforcement action against the campaign of President Donald Trump for soliciting foreign contributions in the summer of 2016.
I appreciated the Sunday article (Page 3A), “Local humming birds inspire awe.” I would add to that. As one of millions of the wonders of nature, humming birds also inspire us to think about how these fantastic creatures came about in the very beginning.
I was appalled after I read the social media post by Stephanie Vander Pas asking for the UW-Whitewater chancellor's resignation. Since when do we as a society think it's OK to blame and hold someone else accountable for the actions of another? Let's try compassion!
What would a sensible immigration policy look like? It would have three goals: be humane, enforce the laws and meet America’s need for labor. This can happen only if our political fringes get out of the way.
In the race to replace Paul Ryan in Congress voters in the 1st Congressional District are lucky: The two candidates offer stark differences in their vision for our state and country.
It’s hard to sit back and watch ads that are deceitful, misleading and unethical. I can assure you that Tony Evers is an honest and decent man who would find any unconscionable crimes against children abhorrent. I know him, and he is a man of substance and character who would clearly work ha…
UW-Whitewater Chancellor Beverly Kopper is trying to separate herself from the sexual harassment allegations against her husband, Alan "Pete" Hill, but she cannot easily escape this scandal.
In one of Brett Kavanaugh's responses to allegations that he sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl when he was in high school, a charge he has denied "categorically and unequivocally," he suggested that, perhaps, this was a case of mistaken identity.
In his new book "Fear," Bob Woodward recounts that in April 2017, after President Trump saw images of dead Syrian children with their mouths foaming from a sarin attack, he called Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and issued an order: Get me a plan for a military strike to take out Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
When Christine Blasey Ford came forward to report that President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, sexually assaulted her in 1982, you could cue the response: Why didn’t she speak out then? Why didn’t she go to the police?
Wisconsin is definitely on the right track with unemployment at an all-time low and the tax burden at a 50-year low. However, that isn’t by accident.
I was present at the Sept. 10 Janesville City Council meeting where several parents presented their arguments for action from the council to pass an anti-bullying ordinance. While their concern was palpable, I think their solution is redundant, flawed and could have negative, unintended cons…
“Where is Waldo?” was a very popular character in the 1990s. We were asked to find Waldo in pictures of crowds everywhere. It was fun and a challenge.
On Sept. 11, your main, Page 1A headline was, “Anti-bullying plan moves forward.” I feel you could have had a much better headline. You could have told was happened 17 years ago on 9/11. You should have told how many people were killed at Shanksville, Pennsylvania, and how many people perish…
