Absent from Selma

I was amazed to read the March 19 letter to the editor by David Lyons regarding the absence of Republicans at the 50th anniversary Selma march. Tragically we have unbelievable bias in much of our news media and people who will put lies out on the internet which is probably the reason Mr. Lyo…

Newly elected officials are no good

Paulson's background will serve him well

Proposed cuts threaten UW System

As a University of Wisconsin-Madison freshman, I would like to take the opportunity to voice my opinion about the proposed $300 million budget cut to the UW System for the 2015-17 biennial budgets. The affordability of UW-Madison relative to other highly regarded institutions is what makes t…

Obama trying to ruin America
