OPINION: BRENDA LOOPER: On the bright side

posted: 07/19/2017 2:55 a.m. Discuss

Between the summer heat and the constant drama coming from D.C. and elsewhere, it's hard to maintain a sunny demeanor ... not that I always have one.

OPINION: BRENDA LOOPER: Who's the faker?

I've just about given up on some people. No matter how much evidence they're presented with, they're immovable.

OPINION: Words of whimsy

posted: 06/28/2017 3:04 a.m. Discuss

In the age of Trump, it seems words no longer mean what we (and the dictionary) think they mean. After the multiple Trump tweetstorms of the past couple of weeks (and the literal storm that took out a tree and my neighbor's shed), I find myself looking to my favorite words. Because, ya know, I need a break.

OPINION: BRENDA LOOPER: Person, not party

As the dust settles on last week's shooting at a practice field where congressional Republicans were preparing for a charity baseball game, I've been seeing something that frankly terrifies me--tone-deaf finger-pointing. At a time like this, we should be joining hands, not pointing fingers.

OPINION: BRENDA LOOPER: Farewell, friend

Just after Friday night turned to Saturday morning, I lost my best friend. It was quick, and thanks to medication, painless, a mercy after his sudden collapse Friday evening.

OPINION: BRENDA LOOPER: Parsing parcels

Dammit, Bill Clinton.

OPINION: BRENDA LOOPER: An uncivil war

posted: 05/31/2017 4:30 a.m. Comments 26

It's hard sometimes to understand just what is going on in the world. For years, we've watched as divisions have deepened across the U.S. Depending who you talk to, it all started with Barack Obama, or the Southern strategy, or Voldemort. Wait, scratch that last one.

OPINION: BRENDA LOOPER: The invisible man

posted: 05/24/2017 4:30 a.m. Discuss

I feel so betrayed right now. Mr. Anonymous has been berating other people. Gosh, and here I thought I was special.

OPINION: BRENDA LOOPER: On the offense

posted: 05/17/2017 4:30 a.m. Comments 2

Why are we always so quick to take offense? Why must so much be viewed through a hyperpartisan lens?

OPINION: BRENDA LOOPER: Myth-taken ideas

posted: 05/10/2017 4:30 a.m. Comments 8

Every day I plow through letters that claim former President Barack Obama was a Kenyan Muslim socialist (he's not, and he's not in office anymore; let it go).
