    Learning, belatedly, from my grandmother's mistakes

    My Grandma Betty worked for most of her life, starting as a teen at the Lakes Theater in Detroit Lakes, Minn., and continuing right up into her 80s, when she crunched numbers for Nielsen Research, her red hair finally tinged white at the temples. In between she helped out at her parents’ store...

    I voted for Clinton, but her book makes me cringe

    I voted for Hillary Clinton. She would have made a fine president. She was well qualified for the position, and there’s no doubt she was maligned and misrepresented throughout the campaign on her way to winning the popular vote while ultimately losing in the Electoral College. Still, the very idea...

    Taylor Swift sets example for women by refusing to 'shake it off'

    I wish Taylor Swift had taken him to the cleaners. David Mueller — a 51-year-old DJ — had the gall to not only grab her 23-year-old behind during a photo op in 2013 (standing next to his then-girlfriend, no less), but to also sue the world-famous pop star for losing his radio job because of it.

    Take your own advice, commissioner: don't rush to defend officers accused of wrongdoing

    I understand Police Commissioner Kevin Davis’ impulse in wanting to stand up for his officers after two body camera videos appeared to show them staging drug recoveries in separate incidents. After all, we don’t really know what the recordings show, just what we think they show, and his department...

    Trump can't stop being himself

    In the same week we learned there was yet another reason to admire Amelia Earhart as a feminist icon and were reminded of the brilliance of Maryam Mirzakhani, the only woman to win the equivalent of a Nobel Prize in mathematics, our president reduced France’s first lady to the status of a racehorse....

    Lessons from a cowboy and recovering addict

    I got a handwritten letter in the mail last week from a city official complimenting a column, but also taking our opinion pages to task, noting that “observing and commenting … is far easier than blocking and tackling on the playing field.” And he’s right, of course (even if he too is “observing...

    Dear Baltimore judge: 'Manning up' is not admitting guilt, it's avoiding the crime

    On Sept. 7th, Dakei Perry, then 18, ordered from a Baltimore pizza place so he and his two accomplices could attack the delivery driver. They choked her, pawed through her pockets, stole her cash and cell phone — and then ate the food. Five days later, young Mr. Perry joined in the group assault...
