The anti-Biden letters to the editor in the Gazette seem to be from people who don’t think about the issues for themselves, but who mindlessly parrot Trumpist propaganda (and Russian propaganda) without ever asking whether any of it is true. A paragraph in Frank Cullen’s August 22nd letter a…

We procured a new bird bath bowl, ordered over the telephone a couple of weeks ago, the last one to be had, due to saturated demand for such things in our region. The pedestal sat all by its lonesome for years, before we had the wherewithal to find it a mate.

Labor Day in the Pandemic Year of 2020 has come and gone, and by the day after, Tuesday, something had changed. You could feel it and hear it, some shift in the light and the air and the mood, changes that in a normal year we might associate with going back to school and the end of summer pl…

I fear three newspapers more than 100,000 bayonets. Napoleon once said it, and today you’ve got President Donald Trump with reason to fear Atlantic magazine, 1,331 daily newspapers, 1,761 TV stations, 15,530 radio stations, 1.73 billion daily users of Facebook and 149 million daily users of …

One of the highlights of my 93-year-old mother’s week is when she receives an inspirational essay from a church lady (hi, Regina!) who maintains a mailing list for Special People.

It’s a minor injustice of the pandemic — emphasis on “minor,” because there are clearly more significant ones — that the disruption occurred during a year when two local teams, the Minnesota Twins and Minnesota Vikings, were expected to be contenders. For that reason, the teams’ long-sufferi…

I’m personally more inclined to contemplate the idiosyncrasies of my own navel than to notice yours, let alone find fault with it. When I notice something – anything, my first reaction is to hit the inward search bar and examine myself for fault. Yours is yours – I’ll let you be, but mine, I…

It's hard to believe that America's legislators, whatever their political leanings, would willingly allow millions of children to go hungry. Yet that is what's happening during the COVID-19 crisis — and unless Congress acts quickly, the problem's about to get worse.

Hurricane Laura made landfall early Thursday morning with sustained winds of 150 mph, wreaking havoc on much of the east Texas and Louisiana coastline and devastating the Louisiana city of Lake Charles, so far claiming the lives of at least 14 people.

The times are so strange, so confusing, so upside-down that it is easy to miss what counted most at the two national political conventions conducted under coronavirus conditions. Audiences were largely missing, Hamlet-like soliloquies were a new ingredient, show biz was at its political best…

I feel like I’ve been oozing stuff for years. I’ve given stuff away, sold stuff, thrown stuff out but stuff seems to leech out of the walls of our home.

America, we think it may be time for an intervention. We’ve noticed you’ve been drinking more lately. According to market research from Nielson, retail alcohol sales are up 23.6% during the pandemic. Hey, we get it. These are stressful times. Besides the global pandemic, there has been an at…

There he was on TV in front of me, Joe Biden accepting the Democratic nomination for president and outlining the nation’s incredible challenges — COVID-19, a wrecked economy, a search for racial justice and climate change. Then the TV went off and the lights went out. The house and in fact t…
