by Dan Brawner Columnist · Opinions | November 16th, 2017

The leaves have been hanging on the trees this fall like they're afraid to let go. It may be pleasant to look at, but I think it has made me lazy. I keep thinking I can wait one more week before I rake. Who cares if I do? What will it matter to the fate of the world?

by Dan Brawner Columnist · Opinions | November 2nd, 2017

This week, the Environmental Protection Agency abruptly blocked three of their scientists from scheduled discussions on climate change at a conference in Rhode Island.

A few days ago, Hannah Waskel was driving around Altoona with a friend. When they stopped for a red light and looked over at the car next to them, one of the passengers staring back at them seemed a bit peculiar. It took Waskel a moment to realize that the odd passenger was actually a horse.

by Dan Brawner Columnist · Opinions | October 12th, 2017

Erin Lee Macke, the 30-year-old divorced Iowa mom who left her young children home alone while she went on an 11-day vacation in Germany, has done a great service for parenthood. She has provided us with a picture of the Monster of Motherhood. Now moms can say, sure, I may have given my kids pizza for breakfast three days in a row, but it's not like I'm Erin Lee Macke. When the story of the jet-setting, hard-partying Macke went viral, the level of self-righteous hatred directed at her from all over the world was overwhelming.
