Columns

From the column: "Apologies and pledges from the NFL would be meaningless. A justifiable penance, however, and a good way to start the healing, would be donating all of Super Bowl LVI’s proceeds to the Mental Health Foundation (and) announcing the firing of (NFL Commissioner Roger) Goodell at halftime."
From the column: "Many people simply don’t want to fit into the old cultural structures. ... I can’t think of one thing all Americans would rally around anymore."
From the column: "Holiday victories soon faded as things took a turn south."
From the column: "Race was a business when the Ku Klux Klan formed to suppress the Black vote in the 1890s. It was a business during slavery. The difference today is who runs this business. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton have earned millions of dollars extorting companies with their campaigns of racial intimidation. Have they solved any problems? Or have they just turned a profit?"

From the column: "Unquestionably, as demonstrated by the vigilante lynching of Till in 1955 to the vigilante shooting of Arbery in 2020, too often the color of one’s skin continues to dominate."
From the column: "After 40 years of this beat-down on wages and benefits, with pro-business government policies, there doesn’t seem to be a will to turn back the clock."
From the column: "These cells are able to recharge faster than their lithium-ion cousins and have much better low-temperature performance, a significant factor in Duluth and the Northland."
"My best advice as a faith leader is to seek out where you can find the Spirit, God’s active presence in the world, still at work. This can be in the talented medical staff taking care of your loved one; this could be in the network of friends who rally to your side. The Spirit is there, at work, somewhere."
From the column: "Honoring the authentic legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. requires taking on three of humanity’s great problems, as embodied in the “giant triplets” King fought against: racism, materialism, and militarism."
From the column: "Furthermore, Twin Metals has a host of innovations that set the project apart as a model operation, such as the environmentally friendly dry stack tailings method, carbon sequestration, an electric fleet, and a goal to become net zero."

From the column: "The airwaves will be filled this weekend with Dr. King's “I Have a Dream” speech, but I want to challenge us to get familiar with his “Give Us the Ballot” speech, delivered at the Prayer Pilgrimage for Freedom in 1957."
From the column: "Throughout the past year, the Duluth NAACP worked to enact very real changes in the region, particularly in areas of law enforcement, health equity, and education."
From the column: "We’ve always believed our 8th District is a tremendous place where we can enjoy our abundant resources and live and raise a family or even run a business. We are fortunate to live in a place filled with loving, smart, and hard-working people."
