Editorial: Time to value higher education

Editorial: Let Minnesotans vote on same-sex marriage
There’s no denying the momentum building since November, when an amendment was defeated that would have constitutionally – and pretty much permanently – banned gay marriage in Minnesota and when DFLers were swept into control of both the state House and Senate, joining a DFL...

Editorial: Political dawn comes up purple in Minnesota
Funny thing about Minnesota in its glory days — the 1970s, the years when the cover of Time magazine touted “The State That Works”: It was neither a Republican- nor a DFL-dominated time. For example, on its web page devoted to the “Minnesota Miracle” — the 1971 restructuring...

Snow means revisiting some winter etiquette we haven't seen for a couple years. So these tips bear repeating. Please don't relocate your snow into and across any roadway. It's illegal, it's a traffic hazard and it makes your neighbors crazy. With temps all over the map, today's...

It's funny and touching when Lake Wobegone's creator says, "all the children are above average" in the fictional town. But when test scores come back with that finding in the real world, people wonder if there's something wrong with the test. Likewise when the scores say all the...
