Character beyond measure
Americans have reason to trust in progress. By so many different yardsticks, we can gauge improvement just over the past half-century. We are indisputably more tolerant and accepting than we were in the 1960s.

An American Trademark: Free Speech
These days the First Amendment is on shakier ground than it has been in a long, long time.

The attack on free speech by the Left has been going on for years, of course. It started decades ago with the banning of displays of the Ten Commandments in classrooms and courthouses, and the banishing of manger scenes from the public square.

Donald Trump is no Richard Nixon
In just 13 days in October 1973, Washington endured a series of seismic political shocks. On Oct. 10, Vice President Spiro Agnew - having pleaded guilty in a federal courthouse in Baltimore to failure to pay taxes on thousands of dollars in bribes he, as both Maryland governor and VP, had shaken down from businessmen - resigned his office.

Climate change hypocrites
Maybe the most laughable reaction to Donald Trump's pulling out of the Paris climate accord came from European and Chinese leaders who blasted Trump and America for "surrendering its world leadership" role. The sanctimonious leaders of Asian and European nations pledged to move full speed ahead on clean energy without the United States. Be my guest.

Why Trump must make Putin smile
Whenever Donald Trump gratuitously insults an American ally or casually degrades our country's reputation, it is hard not to wonder what he thinks he is doing. Could the president of the United States perpetrate these damaging stunts, over and over again, merely to massage his own ego? Of all the explanations for Trump's astonishingly destructive behavior, immaturity and narcissism are actually among the more innocent possibilities.

Upper Midwest Bass Challenge anglers take on a finicky Boom Lake
Neither the post-spawn, post-front conditions nor the wind and rain could keep over 70 anglers from the Upper Midwest Bass Challenge (UMBCS) from the water last Sunday as they took on Boom Lake, what is perennially known as a finicky fishery at best. For many, last weekend was the first time they had seen the fishery. The UMBCS has been held on the west side of the state for many years until tournament director Gregg Kizewski moved to St. Germain just last year. (subscriber access)

The lake where you live
Fishing friends and I have a name for those slender, tube-shaped plants that spike up in clusters in shallow water along lakeshores. We call them pencil reeds. And we're wrong. They are really not reeds at all but rushes of various kinds, in many cases hardstem or softstem bulrushes.

The Paris agreement should have been abandoned because of its illegitimacy
To the Editor:

President Trump, courageously and correctly, withdrew the United States from the Paris climate agreement. Withdrawal was for economic reasons. However, surely the most important reason for its withdrawal should have been its illegitimacy.

Ever wonder why carbon dioxide, the molecule converted into organic compounds of living organisms which is responsible for all life on the planet, is the target of climate change Alarmists? Why isn't the target water vapor, the most abundant by far of the greenhouse gases?

Response to recent opinions
To the Editor:

Observations on a couple of recent articles. First on the "Our View" opinion piece. It is completely mystifying how the readers of this paper, in almost every publication, were subjected throughout Obama's administration to an unrelenting denunciation of his every proposal, policy or program. There was ceaseless, unending criticism and apoplectic indignation of anything he said or did. Obama could not take any action which would have not resulted in a vendetta by this paper.

'Misinterpretation of the German psyche'
To the Editor:

I read the two letters to the editor from Ms. Kristy Lutz and G.D. Holcombe regarding Germany with great interest. Like Kristy, I also moved to Germany from Wisconsin at a similar time. I was seasonally employed at the time and was insured on short term insurance policies I paid for myself once I was out from under the wing of my parents' policy. This worked great at covering 80 percent of my $12,000 in care I received after catching a really bad illness after travels in the South but only covered me for three months at a time and it didn't do anything for my coming child. I had the luxury of a German wife ... What an American freeloader I was, right?

Trump trashes democracy
To the Editor:

Throughout Donald Trump's candidacy and brief tenure in office, he has managed to eradicate civility, a longstanding hallmark of our great democracy.

Google the name "Donald Trump" and note the headlines, "6 Countries Trump Insulted," "Trump Threatens World Leaders," "Trump Is Running Out of Foreign Leaders to Alienate."
