    As Montana goes, so might go the rest of the nation in the Big Money 2012 election.
      Sick of the presidential race yet? What makes it even more annoying is that they are starting earlier and earlier. Consider Tim Pawlenty — seemingly competent guy, ran an entire state. He’s already quit the race — five months before anybody takes a vote that actually counts.

    A Fourth of July dispatch from the nation's capitol.
      NATIONAL MALL, WASHINGTON, D.C. — Over in the Smithsonian’s American History Museum, you can see the original Star-Spangled Banner. They keep it under low light in a tightly controlled environment. Way back, they used to haul it out and fly it on the Fourth of July.

    What if the Confederacy had won the Battle of Gettysburg?
      It´s one of the great what-ifs of the Civil War, which started 150 years ago: What if the Confederacy had won the Battle of Gettysburg? Answer: They probably would have won the war. But what makes the exercise particularly compelling this week is the fact that the Union surrender could have happened on the Fourth of July.

    Republicans scramble to distance themselves from a plan they used to like.
      Presidential hopeful Tim Pawlenty got a great zinger when he called the Massachusetts health care system “Obamneycare.” It’s because before there was Obamacare — specifically the rule to require everyone to buy health insurance — Mitt Romney enacted the same policy in Massachusetts.

    What would Clarence Darrow say about the NFL and NBA disputes?
      With two new biographies just out, Clarence Darrow is back in the public eye — and right on time, as America is simmering in that age-old cauldron of labor versus capital. Although best known for his work in the Scopes trial, most of his more than 2,000 cases were spent defending workers’ rights.

    Do increased ratings for Anderson Cooper mean we're returning to real news?

    Your kids may annoy you with questions, but da Vinci was the same way.
      If you’re around an 8-year-old much, you know the word. With eyes wide open, and a sponge for a brain, they want answers. “Why is pop fizzy?” “Why do plants need dirt?” “Why do I have five toes?” “Why?” It’s a constant reminder of that basic need of humanity — to understand.

    There are fees for everything these days. But are we just getting the government we’ve asked for?
      Oh, there’s more. This summer, if you want to visit our state parks, it’s free — unless you want to bring your car. Then it’s $10. If you want to do the right thing by purchasing one of those electric cars, the state has something for you — a bill! That’s right, it’ll be $100 a year to go electric.

    My year-span stretches back to 1919. How about yours?
      But there is this one fun thing to do. Take your age and subtract it from the year you were born. For me, that winds up at 1919. Yeah, it makes you feel old — but it also connects you to what can seem like pretty distant history. Think of it as your year-span.

    Bin Laden is dead. What now?
      As Osama bin Laden’s story has come to a much-deserved end, it’s only human to view it as a relief, a moment of closure, even victory. But it’s more complicated than that. The last decade has changed America profoundly, and we continue to evolve in how we deal with the most dangerous parts of the planet.

    The 7-plus miles that Bloomies will run this weekend doesn't come close to the distance traveled by the cotton on their backs.
      “We don’t source any of our cotton from Asia,” says Todd Gilmer, a national account executive for the northwest division of the Russell Corporation, a subsidiary of Fruit of the Loom that owns the Jerzees brand, this year’s manufacturer of Bloomsday T-shirts.

    Why Spokane's best young runners are discouraged from running Bloomsday.
      Spokane probably has the fastest county-wide cluster of high school distance runners in the nation. And Spokane has one of the world’s largest timed road races. But because of timing, the two phenomena rarely connect.
