Viewpoint: Klobuchar should stand for public health care
Last Saturday, at the education day preceding the Minnesota Nurses Association's annual convention, a ballroom full of registered nurses from throughout the state pulled out their cell phones and dialed Sen. Amy Klobuchar's office to encourage her to support a strong public option...

Viewpoint: Motorists likely to drive you mad
We're going through a bit of a milestone in the Weber household these days: our final student driver. I don't know whether it's my age, knowing I've lived through two other kids learning the road warrior experience, or, more likely, that this final child just has his act together...

Viewpoint: Airing president's speech to schoolchildren the right choice
Presidents have often called on Americans of all ages to work to make our country the greatest society in history. Kennedy brought the moon closer, started the Peace Corps and called us to service. In 1991, Bush's nationally televised address to junior high school students instructed...

Viewpoint: Time for term limits in Congress
In case you've been in a media-free zone for the summer, here's where we are with health care reform. The Democrats run the White House and the Congress. They have 60 percent of the Senate and 58 percent of the House. A lot of new Democrats, including the president, were elected on...

Viewpoint: Economy brings generations together
In a sign of the times, my daughter Shelly (Park High School 2001 graduate) moved in last weekend. There were many factors. An expiring lease, a roommate who herself moved back in with family, a freelance movie-making job requiring long stretches from home, and a desire to save...

Viewpoint: Playing field's still not quite level
I played on my nursing school basketball team in mid-1970s Philadelphia. While not a team high, I'm darn proud of the eight points I scored over three years. Similar to the movie, "A League of Their Own," about women's professional baseball during World War II, we were quite a sight...

Viewpoint: Don't wait for a health care fix
A couple years ago, I registered as a lobbyist and went to the state Capitol to work on fixing health care. I represented a coalition of doctors, nurses, other health care workers, farmers, small businesses and good government folks like the League of Women Voters. Our goal was to...

Viewpoint: Let's see affordable, elder-friendly nursing homes here
People look forward to ending up in a nursing home about as much as they look forward to surgery without anesthesia. My recent experience moving my 93-year-old mother, Grace, to a nursing home in New Jersey following her latest heart attack reminded me of how important it is for all...

Viewpoint: It takes a village to ease parents' passage
My 93-year old mother, Grace, had a heart attack on Holy Thursday, laid on the hardwood floor of her tiny garden apartment for two nights, and was found by my brother -- conscious, coherent and very cold -- on Good Friday. Despite a remarkable recovery, that horrifying personal crucifixion...

Viewpoint: Private health care is best? Prove it.
One of the silver linings of our economic storm cloud is our collective reawakening to the fact that, as Lord Acton noted, "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely." Unchecked corporate power raged in America, and people are eager now to use their government...

Viewpoint: Minnesota's election process is reliable
There was Jesus Christ, persuading the vote. In the foyer of the local Lutheran church in a town on the outskirts of the Twin Cities last Nov. 4, a huge full-color tapestry of Christ hung over a dull steel gray machine labeled, "Ballot Printer." It was the famous scene of Christ...
