Dennis: Trusting jets, bridges and vaccines
Electricity. Cars. Air travel. Computers. Not to mention smart phones, refrigerators, air conditioning, even Keurig coffee machines … These and other innovations have transformed civilization, making life in the 21st century better than at any time in the history of the world. And...

Dennis: Keystone XL delays get embarrassing
The stakes couldn’t have been higher when President Barack Obama faced the “Go/No go” decision to get Osama bin Laden. A disastrous outcome would have haunted his administration. It would have been even more humiliating than the Desert One debacle in 1980, which ended with two...

Dennis: Regulators should be more proactive
It took explosions, fires and deaths before federal and state regulators got grimly serious about the risks of transporting Bakken oil. Likewise, it took the discovery of mounds of dumped oil-field waste before North Dakota regulators made safe disposal a top priority. Now, here’s...

Dennis: Trip to tourney first of many for UND programs
Where sports are concerned, the University of North Dakota is best known as a hockey school. And given the men’s hockey team’s record of seven NCAA Division I national championships, that’s understandable. But the 21st century is not going to be a repeat of the 20th, as something...

Dennis: Property rights for me but not thee
Property rights are the talk of the state, especially as North Dakotans weigh the proposal to give special consideration to “extraordinary places.” And for one side of the debate, the answer is clear: The government has no business interfering with a property owner’s decisions...

Dennis: Oil industry promotion, regulation don’t mix
From the oil-train fireball near Casselton to the massive pipeline spill near Tioga to the reckless endangerment of the drinking water supply near Ross, North Dakota’s industrial accidents have been much in the news. But other states have been there before.

Dennis: Farmstead has future beyond Welk
In his State of the Union address in 1992, President George H.W. Bush condemned a federal grant that was bound for North Dakota to build “a Lawrence Welk museum.” A Grand Forks Herald editorial responded this way: “Bush’s words were meant to stir up antagonism against excessive...

OK, so the payoff may not be a $1.5 million a year contract, which is the deal Craig Bohl reportedly will be getting for leaving North Dakota State University in favor of coaching Wyoming’s football team. Still, UND and NDSU faculty members who can’t believe the kind of money...

America must promise Boston justice will come
Not so long ago, terrorism evoked not only distress and confusion but also hand-wringing. What is to be done? In an age where one person or one group can wreak such havoc, is there any useful way to respond? Today, the confusion is still there, at least for the first few days.
