BREAKING NEWS

  • BROOKS/Dignity in the working class
    Wednesday, September 21, 2016 6:00 PM
    A few weeks ago I met a guy in Kentucky who’d lived through every trend of deindustrializing America.

    He grew up about 65 years ago on a tobacco and cattle farm, but he always liked engines, so even while in high school he worked 40 hours a week in a garage. Then he went to work in a series of factories — making airplane parts, car seats, sheet metal and casings for those big air-conditioning fans you see on the top of buildings.
  • PERRY/The real puppeteer
    Wednesday, September 21, 2016 6:00 PM
    Political consultants Greg Brand and George Williams have pleaded no contest in the case of the anonymous mailer featuring caricatures of Madison’s mayor as a puppeteer during last year’s state election cycle.

    The duo last week entered no contest pleas to participating “in the authorship of and/or paying for and/or distribution of a printed campaign mailer” referencing elections “that did not bear upon the face thereof the name and the address of the author and of the printer and publisher thereof,” which is a misdemeanor under state law.
  • LOWRY/Is Trump a traitor, as Hillary says?
    Wednesday, September 21, 2016 6:00 PM
    Someone dares call it treason. Hillary Clinton used the occasion of the New York-area bombings to accuse Donald Trump of providing “aid and comfort” to ISIS.

    This speaks both to her desperation as polls show a tightening race and her foolish misunderstanding of what drives ISIS and other Islamic radicals.
