Breaching dams isn't the answer

Monumental Dam has a concrete fish ladder. Its lock works for barge. Rather than breach the dam – or others on the Lower Snake River – how about using a tunnel-boring machine to notch an on the side an additional zig-zag fish... — Updated 1/11/2024

"Progressive" policies on policing make us all less safe.

As a long-time Washingtonian I am alarmed and scared by the rise in crime in our neighborhoods and cities. Even in broad daylight it can feel unsafe just to go to the grocery store. Basic common sense dictates that fewer police... — Updated 12/7/2023

 

Fake news isn't the problem

Our problem is not that there is too much “fake news.” Our problem is that too many people believe it. Fortunately, there is an “antidope” — epistemology , the theory of knowledge or “how we know what we know.... — Updated 9/28/2023

 

Illegal child labor should cause outrage

I had the great privilege of completing a summer internship in the now historic Hull-House in Chicago in the early 1960’s, more than 50 years ago. During that time, the Hull House was gradually closing, as the neighborhood it... — Updated 6/29/2023

 

Property taxes are too high

Teacher's role misrepresented in story

School board meeting the catalyst

Guard liberty and freedom, the American way

America is where liberty and freedom are guarded by jealously, which is required by a “patriot” that defends it with their last breath. In today’s America, very few people think this way. But the few that do are painted as... — Updated 2/15/2023

Washington State House Bill 1110 and Senate Bill 5190 are identical and are on track for approval. They will destroy city residential zoning codes statewide. This appears to cancel out planning authority and resident input at the c... — Updated 2/2/2023

Letter to the Editor

What have we learned since the 2020 election? No matter how ill-founded the lie, if continually repeated for two years--the Big Lie that the 2020 presidential election was stolen--many people will believe it. Repeating lies has bee... — Updated 12/22/2022

I was surprised to learn that Republicans are starting to use Ranked Choice voting to choose their candidates in their internal primaries. I thought Ranked Choice Voting appealed only to Left wing types. One reason I’ve read... — Updated 12/1/2022

 

President Biden deserves credit for election

Give President Joe Biden some credit for mid-term election Democratic successes when most everyone, including the media, predicted otherwise. Instead of focusing on himself, he quietly avoided states where he’s unpopular and... — Updated 11/17/2022
