From this Perch: Here's to Hope!
Lie: "a false statement made with deliberate intent to deceive; an intentional untruth; a falsehood" (dictionary.com). Pretty clear, isn't it? One person says "That light was red" and another says "No, it was orange." If each is sincere, this is simply a disagreement and neither...

From this Perch column: Run for the hills, bagpipes are coming!
"Want to go to a concert with me?", my wife asked recently. "What kind of concert?", I asked. "It's called 'Masters of Scottish Arts.'" Silence. "Does that mean bagpipes?" I asked. "Yep. Featured, in fact." Every once in a while you're asked to go along with something you may not...

From This Perch column: Grading Donald Trump
I have recently been wondering how Donald Trump's supporters would grade him for his first year in office. So I approached a number of friends and family members — folks who had voted for Mr. Trump. Each of them knew that I had not voted for their candidate. Eight people —...

From this Perch: It's a wildfire!
It seems we're in the midst of a wildfire these days, and I don't mean the fires that are ravaging Southern California. I'm referring to the wave of sexual misconduct allegations that have caused some big heads to roll lately. We haven't seen the last of this, and I'll bet more than...

From This Perch: Seeing through a tribal lens
Got tribal lens? What's that, you ask? It's the idea that most of us tend to fall into a variety of "tribes," or social divisions, that create tribal unity around things like sports, family, friends, religion, and of course, politics. I refer to it as a lens because a lens can distort...

From This Perch column: Redrawing district boundaries
My last column covered some background on Wisconsin's redistricting process and the lawsuit over the new districts of 2011. This time we'll take a look at several related things: 1. How Republicans, who had full power over state government, went about redrawing district boundaries;...

From This Perch column: Does Wisconsin have gerrymandered districts?
Maybe you caught the recent news about the Wisconsin redistricting case now in front of the U.S. Supreme Court. Some questions and offered answers about that case: Why is the case at the Supreme Court? Republicans won the governor's race in 2010 and also won majorities in the state...

"Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. "The winds will blow their own freshness into you, "and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves." -- John Muir Oddly, fresh from an annual visit to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness,...

From This Perch: When you point one finger, three are pointing back at you
U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley recently commented on the President's decision to fire FBI Director James Comey: "The president is the CEO of the country. He can hire and fire whoever he wants," she said. Of all of President Trump's appointees, Ambassador Haley is one of my...
