A recent story of BYU's computerized homework system that crashed sparks a memory for a former statistics professor. Read more »
The sad spectacle currently playing out in Rowan County, Kentucky, is made all the sadder because it is being done under the guise of civil rights. Read more »
It seems to me that Donald Trump perceives the presidency of the United States as a dictator function. Read more »
I lost count of how many times Jim Harbaugh was panned and spoken about during the recent Utah vs. Michigan football game. Utah was incidental to this broadcast — it was all about Michigan and Harbaugh. Read more »
Suppose that you are distracted from the road in front of you by one-half second, a very short time. If you are going only 20 mph, it still travels 15 feet. Even 15 feet is ample distance to hit a car, child or person in front of you. Read more »
Mitt Romney was actually one of the best candidates to ever run for the presidency in the history of our nation. He has the experience, the tact, the savvy, the moral character, the diplomacy, the brilliance to help get our country... Read more »

A tax on physicians to pay for the Medicaid expansion will make it much more difficult to recruit young doctors into Utah’s training programs. It will discourage young doctors from returning to Utah following the completion of... Read more »
The government and police agency of the United States are trying to control the ownership of guns to reduce gun violence. To me this is the wrong approach. Read more »
The School Trust Lands have been compensated with largesse by the federal government for their sections in the monument. Since that exchange, the School Trust Lands have been swimming in money they never dreamed about getting. Read more »
