The North Dakota Board of Higher Education has put its future at risk.
Controversy involving the board over the past several years put the eight-member group on shaky footing with the Legislature and the public.

Fargo Mayor Dennis Walaker has taken a curious and out-of-character position on a city ordinance proposed by City Commissioner Melissa Sobolik that would ban discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

North Dakota will never become the film capital of North America, but the state has the potential and the resources to gain consideration by the television and film industry as a good location to make TV shows and movies. That’s not happening now because North Dakota does not promote itself as a good place to make a movie, and hasn’t done so effectively or consistently for years.
The crime news from North Dakota’s booming oil counties paints a mixed and often manipulated picture of what is happening out there. It’s not all that bad or it’s out of control. It’s the media’s focus on the negative or local see-no-evil cheerleading.
It looks like the gosh-darned liberal media won’t have Michele Bachmann to kick around anymore. Minnesota’s 6th District Republican congresswoman and tea party darling announced online Wednesday she would not seek re-election after eight years in the U.S. House.
