An item in the Nation and World Digest of Thursday's Wisconsin State Journal caught my eye. According to the article, the U.S. Postal Service incurred a financial loss for the 12th straight year and, as a result, the agency is bracing for a report ordered by the president to address its "uns…
Two-hundred years ago, the British poet William Blake observed, "The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way."

In the July 4 issue of the State Journal, a full-page ad titled "God Bless America" expounded, with multiple quotes, that the United States of America is a Christian nation. It even argued the law about prayer in school. This full-page ad was sponsored and paid for by Hobby Lobby.

If President Donald Trump worked at any business, he would have been disciplined and perhaps lost his job by now for his constant negative comments about people.
Regarding the recent State Journal article about "Madison's 10 most dangerous intersections," drivers see "speed stings" throughout the city. I have even seen "pedestrian crossing" stings to catch those drivers who ignore pedestrians in the new lighted crosswalks.
