Today’s political scene filled with snake oil salesmen
Many years ago and a lifetime away I was movie mogul. No, not the type that owns a production studio and is seen sitting atop piles of money. As a young man, I worked in and eventually managed a couple of motion picture theaters just as the video age came to the forefront of our lives...

The one thing: Our story is the story of water
Several months ago, on my way into our weekly editorial meeting, a question came up during a discussion on MPR that was so thought-provoking, I commandeered it for my Inquiring Reporter question that week. I have continued to incorporate it into almost every interview I’ve done...

The soundtrack of our lives
Music has always been important to me. It’s always been playing in the back of my mind, beginning at a very young age and continuing to this day. Since the days when I first understood high fidelity and watched as my father acted as conductor of the London Philharmonic playing...

Living in the new world
A couple weeks ago for the inquiring reporter question, I asked, “how does the threat of terrorism impact your life?” The attacks in Brussels were still in the headlines and San Bernadino and Paris were not quite yet numb in our hearts and minds. I really wanted to know how real...

The first step is admitting you have a problem
No, it’s not to the point, in which I have receipts from when I went out to eat from 2005 or dust bunnies that have gathered over the last six months, but if I wanted to find baby toys my daughters played with (now ages 8 and 5) I could find them in our basement. When we moved into...

Kitty and the life of a pet owner
Growing up, I lived in a household that always had pets ... mostly cats and dogs, but with the occasional bird or fish. However, like any boy, it was the dogs and cats that always caught my attention and love. The dogs in my life included Cindy, a Lab/golden retriever/Heinz 57 mix...

Willi Nilli: Five times as nice: Bison, road trips and friends
For the fifth straight year, I made the trek to Frisco, Texas, -- along with my best friend Chris and his family -- to see my alma mater (the Bison of North Dakota State University) knock off another potential usurper to the Football Championship Subdivision National Championship...

Students learning to be part of the community
I’ve been snapping all-conference sports photos for more than 30 years. There have been cute photos, rushed photos and the standard, stand-against-the-wall photos. On Friday, I got to take the most unique all-conference photo I’ve ever shot. And after I thought about it,...

Willi Nilli: So that's what it feels like to be an adult
Up until this last weekend, I hadn’t really felt like much of an actual, real life adult, but more like some pseudo-adult who would always let his inner child sit on his shoulder like those cartoon angels or devils that you see on TV. I had always thought I’d be about 25 percent...

My Point Is: Let the debate continue
I’ll admit it. I’m a sucker for lists. If the link on the page says something like, “Top 10 trends from the 1980s you’ll never see again” or “Top 20 reasons the Minnesota Twins have been terrible the last four years,” I’ll click on it. Why? I’m curious to see if...
