As I See It

You can’t miss the Caitlin Clark show



Sometimes, amid life’s chaos and worries, you need to find something that brings you a little joy. A distraction from our struggles that keeps us from thinking about politics, and wars, and disease and oppression. Like millions of other Americans, I have found that joy to be watching Caitlin Clark play basketball. Clark is a phenom on the court, and she is attracting lots of eyeballs. She is probably the most well-known athlete in this country due to her remarkable shooting prowess, routinely drilling three pointers from the logo, becoming women’s college basketball all time-leading scorer. She is now just a handful of points away from becoming the all-time leading scorer in all of college basketball, men’s or women’s. She could break that record, appropriately, on her home court on Senior Day on Sunday. It is quite a fairytale, that is uplifting all of women’s sports and inspiring millions of young girls to be great themselves. I was fortunate enough to witness the spectacle in person the other night when Iowa played at Minnesota, and the number of Clark jerseys and little girls holding signs and begging for autographs shows just how much the sport has grown. When Caitlin plays, arenas sell out, and television ratings spike. It is must see TV. It has been a nice distraction from everything else going on in our lives. And we all need a little of that sometimes.

    ‘A opportunistic carpet bagger who has a multi-million dollar mansion in California where he lives is not needed in Wisconsin. There still are a few good Republicans in Wisconsin who actually live here. Residents would make better candidates.

    It was all Dem out of state money that elected a fraud to the WI supreme court. The redistricting lawsuit was brought by a traveling legal circus making the rounds in republican controlled states to try to overturn so-called gerrymandered districts…all out of state money and people.

    Baldwin hides out in Madison; as far as the rest of the state is concerned she is an opportunistic carpetbagger.
