Center Stage: The rehabilitation of Ryan Braun

In this week's political podcast, Milfred and Hands ask and answer the question: Would you buy your kid a Ryan Braun jersey, knowing his connection to baseball's doping scandal? Our editorial board members just watched the documentary "Screwball," playing this month at the Wisconsin Film Festival in Madison. The film reminds Milwaukee Brewers fans that their hero was a cheater and liar. But he's come clean and remains a clutch and durable hitter at age 35 as the Crew makes another run at the playoffs.

Commentary: Barr embarrasses himself and Justice Department

Attorney General William Barr's cheerleading for President Trump on Thursday morning was entirely inappropriate, and forces the question of whether a cover-up is underway. Barr claimed, in his brief back and forth with journalists, that he was only there to answer questions about the process of producing the report of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, not its substance.

This Earth Day, it almost feels like we should be carving some turkey. Why? Because we have a lot to be thankful for since the first Earth Day event occurred 49 years ago. We should be thankful that the gloom-and-doom predictions made throughout the past several decades haven't come true. Fear-mongering about explosive population growth, food crises and the imminent depletion of natural ... Read more

Commentary: Trump's tax returns must hold wealth of embarrassing information

You just know President Donald Trump's tax returns are bad. Really bad. Humiliating. Mortifying. Compromising. Incriminating. Fatal to his political fortunes. Why else would the White House be fighting so hard against a formal demand issued April 3 by House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal, D-Mass., that the Internal Revenue Service turn over six years of Trump's personal, ...

Commentary: How and what to restore in Notre Dame

The Cathedral of Notre Dame was built to be a house of God, its soaring Gothic sanctuary meant to inspire both awe and fear. Indeed, one of the latest photographs of the cathedral's fire-damaged interior paints a miraculous picture of survival: a pile of charred timbers leads the eye upward to a statue of the Virgin Mary holding the crucified Jesus, a golden cross over Mary's head. Yet Notre ... Read more

Commentary: South Bend having a moment, thanks to Buttigieg

As a kid in my hometown of South Bend, Ind., I hoped our modest city would one day achieve true national prominence - but I soon understood that it probably never would. I remember scanning the pages of an almanac in the 1970s to find our population, about 125,000, and thinking naively that there was plenty of room to grow. But I would learn that outside of Notre Dame football weekends, ours ... Read more
