  • Our View: Hi-Line darts and laurels

    Updated Mar 18, 2016

    Dart — Every four years, editorial writers decry the ugly state of politics claiming that it is worse than it ever has been. This year, it’s worse than it ever has been.

Laurel —That’s why it’s great to live on the Hi-Line. It’s hard to imagine a race with sharper ideological differences than they have in District 28, Havre’s seat in the Montana House. Republican Stephanie Hes...

    Updated Mar 18, 2016

    I had heard about it, yes, but I did not want to actually hear it, you know, with my ears — or worse, see it with my eyes at the same time my ears were hearing it.

Not that any of the P-words bother me in normal circumstances. Technically, I am a P-word. Also, I’m not running for president. Language like that from a possible future dignitary and I’m thinking, “Real...
