Opinion: The Longest Three-and-a-Half Years

By Carter Hanson, Columnist And now, as the lilting rhetoric of Adam Schiff fades into the monotony, Lisa Murkowski has determined she will vote against including new witnesses and documents in the Senate Impeachment Trial.

Opinion: What It Means to Be Low-Income at Gettysburg

By Julianna Pestretto, Guest Columnist For me, the most surprising moments lie in the minutiae, the quotidian. Those off-the-cuff phrases that you know shouldn’t matter, but matter even more because of their trivial delivery.
