    I have heard multiple times we have problems in this country because of too much politics. I disagree, the problem is too little politics. I say that because we have not learned that elections have consequences.

      According to the article in the Star recounting the tragic events at the Super Bowl parade in Kansas City, a fight broke out between two men (and isn’t it always men?) who didn’t even know each other. Somehow they felt that their disagreement was serious enough to warrant the discharge of bu…

        So, now they want the freedom of only one religion’s adopted Ten Commandments in the public’s classrooms; these rules are attributed to Moses who was most likely born around 1,570 years BC, and thought to be the commandment’s author; he was a Jewish tribal leader of people who chose to belie…

          In the 1970s when I first became involved in the pro-choice abortion issue, we imagined all sorts of scenarios if the U.S. or states were to ever assign personhood to fertilized eggs. (Every miscarriage scrutinized and requiring a death certificate?) Now some of these scenarios have become a…

            Every day we hear of yet another absurd move by the Republicans who desperately try to gain points in public opinion ahead of the Nov. elections. And the closer we look, the more we recognize Putin’s handwriting all over the wall. Whether it’s the opposition to supporting the Ukrainians in t…

            Clearly, University of Arizona President Robert C. Robbins has lost whatever credibility he once had with faculty, staff and most importantly the public.

            The Lukeville closure has created an untenable situation that must be dealt with now. If that weren’t crystal-clear before, the shooting death in an American car on a Sonoran highway this week — part of one of the detour routes to Rocky Point — certainly should make it so. 

            In the '90s I was a founding member of the Black History Club in high school, took Black history courses in college and worked in the minority affairs office in grad school. Yet I did not know who Bayard Rustin was until seeing the 2003 documentary "Brother Outsider."

            Thank you, Tyna Callahan, for your excellent summary of the disadvantages associated with Medicare Advantage - limited choice of providers, requirements for prior authorization and other barriers to care. Traditional Medicare is a government-run program with extremely low administrative cost…

            Wonder if some of the very frequent liberal writers to the Opinion Section are on the ӰAV’s payroll as I see the same names over and over again? Their inputs constantly call those who do not share their political views the most hateful and degrading names. Their theme is alway…
