Meningococcal disease, also known as meningitis, is an uncommon, but potentially life-threatening illness. Studies have shown that from 2014-17, the risk of contracting meningitis B was 3.5 to five times higher in college students age 18-24 compared to persons not attending college of the sa…

The last few “Fast & Furious” movies have gotten a little heavy on the number of characters. The franchise isn’t as crowded as, say, the MCU, but it’s becoming increasingly reasonable to say that “anybody who’s anybody” has been in one of these movies. So it makes sense that the cast has…

Have you taken the time to go wander down to any of the public piers that dot our lake and dangle your feet in the water? To quietly listen to the sounds of the lake? To notice the play of light on its surface? Or gone up to Korth Park and settled your eyes across the lake’s horizon? It’s de…

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is playing a sophisticated game. Since her Democrats took the House, she’s the one who has steadfastly fought off a hasty plunge into the impeachment of President Donald Trump. In the process, she has appeared to resist the more volatile factions in her caucus, par…

It has been a disappointing couple of weeks. Last weekend I had to watch a contemptable reimagining of a childhood favorite in the imagination-less remake of “The Lion King.” And this weekend I had to watch one of the biggest misfires in the career of one of my favorite filmmakers, Quentin T…

What a sad debate between those who contend that Donald Trump fires off his increasingly hateful comments because he's cleverly trying to distract and those who insist it's because he simply has no impulse control. Is his racism uncontrolled or is it calculated, the worst form of demagoguery?

Beto O’Rourke, the losing Texas senator candidate who bootstrapped his way into becoming a losing presidential candidate, had a message for refugees who had come to America: Your new country is a hellhole.

It's obvious to many people that our president, Donald Trump, is really Archie Bunker in the age of social media. The problem is, we have to deal with President Bunker. He is our duly elected chief executive, after all.

It seems a bit early to be thinking about back to school, but I’ve always been a planner. When I was in school I was always excited to pick out my school supplies and new clothes for the upcoming school year. I looked forward to the day my mom would say, ‘It’s time to go school shopping,’ al…

For a growing number of low-income families, Wisconsin’s child care subsidy program is falling short of providing affordable care. Both the governor and Republican legislators proposed remedies as part of the 2019-21 state budget, though neither side called for the resources needed to meet a…

Let’s give the highest praise possible to President Donald Trump: He didn’t mortify his country on Independence Day.

Throughout the biennial budget process, my constituents have urged me to find ways to work together with Governor Evers regarding our state’s two year spending plan. I have listened to people all around the 38th Assembly District and have shared these comments with members of Joint Finance C…

Following “Avengers: Endgame,” the MCU needs someone new at its head. Iron Man and Captain America will not be returning, Thor and the Guardians of the Galaxy are off in space somewhere, Ant-Man and Captain Marvel just had movies in the past year, and Black Panther… has a country to run. I c…

We live in an era of public ugliness, of architects who deliberately make their forms unsightly and inhuman, and of public art installations that are invariably ridiculous.

President Donald Trump’s itinerary at the G-20 summit in Japan included a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, whose government is accused of using dirty tricks to interfere in the U.S. election to sway things Trump’s way. As Trump was leaving the White House, reporters asked if he…

He actually said it! While talking to reporters on his way to Camp David, he used the phrase "Make Iran Great Again"! Does this mean that President Donald Trump has ordered that Iran will join America in the Greatness Club? "MIGA" as opposed to "MAGA"? Of course, Trump insists that since he'…

The worry was that the Trump administration was ginning up fake intelligence about Iran blowing up oil tankers in the Strait of Hormuz to justify a war against Iran. Then the next week President Donald Trump said the Iranian attacks weren't a big deal.

In a tiny room inside a hair salon in Viroqua, two women gaze over a glass case. They have driven 30-some miles down the Mississippi River from La Crosse just to check out Kickapoo Kind, a shop established last summer in the heart of the state’s politically liberal Driftless region.

The words “Wisconsin” and “dairy” go hand in hand. I cannot imagine one without the other. Wherever I go, when I introduce myself, people everywhere recognize Wisconsin as the place for beautiful dairy farms, productive cows, and of course, delicious cheese.

This may be the most boring movie review you ever read. Don’t get me wrong, “Toy Story 4” is far from a boring movie. In fact, it packs in so much action that I wondered if it could even reach a satisfactory conclusion in its 100 minute runtime (spoiler alert: of course it did). No, it’s bor…
