I must share some thoughts on the content of the letter to the editor written by William C. Olson which was published in the June 25 Mount Horeb Mail.  Not because I aim to change his view of systemic racism in America, but because I would find it crushingly unfortunate if any other reader took...
An ode to James Stoener I attended the memorial service for Jim Stoenner on Saturday, June 20. Wow. When doctors from the Gonstead Clinic paid tribute to the service that Dr. Stoenner taught students and chiropractors all over the world and how they stayed in contact and asked questions about...
Constant updates make it hard to miss the latest breakthroughs in COVID-19 treatment. Between promising drug trials and forged scientific articles it can be hard to know what advice to follow. Sometimes it feels like you need a degree in virology just to understand what’s going on. That’s where...
Sheila Stubbs recently described being unjustly shamed and harassed in Madison by police. She was profiled to be a drug dealer because she was black and knocking door-to-door to get elected to Wisconsin Assembly in 2018. She was behaving lawfully. She didn’t deserve such faceless hatred.  Black...

The country has recoiled at the video of a black man expiring from a chokehold, calling out for his mother with dying breath. The vividness of the recorded incident has sparked international outrage and a nationwide conversation on race and police excess. Shamefully, his fate was far from unique;...
Within a few generations, I’m sure our human species will populate new planets, starting from scratch in our infinite attempts to establish the perfect civilization. If you look back at the route we took to get where we are today, it is characterized by one thing: We are always moving, always...

Dallas Bishop T.D. Jakes, who leads The Potter’s House church, said in an interview I saw on CBS last week, that we have three pandemics going on at the same time in the United States right now.  We have an economic pandemic, a medical pandemic, and a social pandemic.  The Corona virus can only be...
