Did you get a tape-recorded message on the phone from Rep. Steve King last week?
  • It’s good to be an American
    In many ways these are tough times for all Americans. The media is filled with reports of the great divisions among Americans on politics and policies, with fires stoked by emotions reflecting a strong desire for one direction or the other.
  • What problem did the Legislature solve?
    We never heard the roar of the lion that the Iowa Legislature was trying to tame last session when it gutted the collective bargaining law. One would think that teacher salaries and benefits were spiraling out of control, and property tax rates with it. This week, the Storm Lake School Board allowed a 1% pay raise for teachers with no changes in other benefits, because those other benefits cannot be negotiated under the new state collective bargaining law.
  • Senator Grassley and private debt collectors

  • Let’s talk about consent — in church
    It’s never a good day when words can send a chill down your spine.
  • The Mayor for Governor
    Fred Hoiberg is a winner treading water in Chicago. He is one person who cold bring all Iowans together.
  • A boy named Geert
    Steve King was hanging in Twitterland with a Boy Named Geert over the weekend when the Kiron philosopher clued us that you can’t defend your culture using somebody else’s babies.
  • On the small screen, surprising flashes of feminism
    I walked into the grocery store the other day to buy flavored creamer that foams up and makes your coffee into a homemade latte.
  • Go forth, Judge Gorsuch
    When President Trump announced that Judge Neil McGill Gorsuch was his nominee for the United States Supreme Court, there was an immediate cascade of loud cheers from his friends and supporters in the East Room of the White House, matched by an equally loud din from his critics. And so it goes in the current political climate.
  • With those words by fellow astronaut Scott Carpenter, John Glenn was launched into space on Feb. 20, 1962, and became the first American to orbit the earth.
  • Let’s talk about women
    Kellyanne Conway was on our radar this week, again.
