Other View: Broadband for all starts with more public Wi-Fi
The 21st-century equivalent of Herbert Hoover’s chicken-in-every-pot promise is a faster internet connection in every home. It’s a laudable but, for now, elusive goal. While working to reach it, however, the next president — whether that’s Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton,...

Other View: Clinton has a foundational problem, but she’s not alone
Even the most ardent supporters of Hillary Clinton must concede that the latest revelation regarding her connection to the Clinton Foundation — that numerous big donors to the charity appear to have had ready access to her when she served as secretary of state — doesn’t reflect...

Other view: Government should make child care affordable
Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton agree on this much: The federal government should do more to help families pay for child care. They’re surely right. In many parts of the U.S., putting children in a child care center has become the single greatest expense parents face, exceeding...

Other view: Tackle stubborn problem of teacher licensing
Important work to address teacher-licensing problems — and to do right by Minnesota students — is happening this summer on two tracks: one in court and the other at the Capitol. An appeals court panel last week rejected a request from the Minnesota Board of Teaching to dismiss...

Other View: Try BWCAW quotas to help overrun parks
Something’s wrong with our National Parks system when lines to get to the Grand Canyon’s South Rim look like lines to get “Hamilton” tickets. America’s annual pilgrimage to our national parks has become a shoulder-to-shoulder, bumper-to-bumper stress test. Last year a record...

Other View: Risky move for Lake Mille Lacs
Politics and wildlife management frequently conflict, so the recent decision by Gov. Mark Dayton to keep the Lake Mille Lacs walleye season open seems likely to backfire. The risk goes beyond the potential overfishing this summer to the often difficult sharing of oversight of the...

Other view: Here’s a way to save the legislative session
Discouraging words were the only ones heard from DFL Gov. Mark Dayton and GOP House Speaker Kurt Daudt a week ago today after their latest private meeting supposedly leading to a special session of the Legislature. The two leaders emerged from their closed-door session complaining...

Other view: Bipartisan consensus on guns could thwart terrorists
Not to get your hopes up, but in the days after the massacre at a gay Orlando, Fla., nightclub, there were signs of an incipient bipartisan consensus on a measure that could head off future acts of domestic terrorism. Though the idea has been raised before, it may finally produce...

Other view: Choice of Tubman a nod to more of history
More Americans may gaze on the likeness of Andrew Jackson each day than on any other figure from U.S. history, in part because inflation has put more $20 bills into people’s hands than in the past and in part because that bill is the ATM standard. It’s the one that some people...

Other View: Minnesota can end last-minute lawmaking
Will Gov. Mark Dayton reconvene the Minnesota Legislature in special session? Will Republican lawmakers agree to the Democratic governor’s conditions? Answers to these questions still are not clear. But here’s what the recent session did make clear, as clear as the water from...

Other View: Lawmakers leave air travelers in lurch
The 2016 Minnesota Legislature had a relatively short to-do list and left a disappointingly high portion of that list undone. One of those undone items was Real ID. What’s at stake here: At some point (and that point has changed frequently), people using standard Minnesota licenses...

Other View: Bonding, roads lead need for extra session
Minnesota House GOP and Senate DFL leaders need to take another swing at passing a bipartisan bonding bill and a comprehensive transportation bill, and do it as soon as possible in a special session called by Gov. Mark Dayton. Agreement on bonding between the House GOP and Senate...
