For several months, we have been hearing about Congress' proposed "Cap and Trade" national energy tax, or "Cap and Tax," as I call it for short. We have just learned that Congressional leadership intends to push it through the House of Representatives this very week. Cap and Tax...

Viewpoint: The DTV transition is finally here
On June 12, Minnesotans made the transition -- along with all Americans -- to an all-digital television transmission. If you use cable or satellite television, you should have experienced no difficulties with this transition. But, if you have rabbit ears or another antenna on top...

Letter: A response to the Novak Viewpoint
When I read Marisa Novak's piece on non-partisanship ("Politicians should clearly display their integrity and values," Viewpoint, Bulletin, May 27), it felt like she was responding to my letter I wrote earlier about the new contenders who will take on Michele Bachmann next year for...

Letter: Bachmann's new political rivals

Letter: $23.1 Trillion with a capital 'T'
Recently, the unemployment rate in Duluth, Minn. hit 10 percent. The report of gross domestic product for the last quarter showed a decline of 6.3 percent -- a very bad economic indicator. Today Chrysler is taken over by the U.S. government and essentially given to the United Auto...

Letter: Lies are no laughing matter
It would be nice to dismiss Rep. Bachmann's assorted factual errors as amusing, but what she and her advisers are about is dead-serious: They wish to implant in the public mind sundry lies, such as the false "coincidence" connecting two Democrat presidents to the Swine Flu. They...
