Someone needs to be transferred to another set of duties. Continuity and Traffic seems to be too much of a challenge for them.

There was a public hearing in Madison that wasn't public. Mark told us why.
Paul Bucher made another misstep on the road to private practice.
When is the reckoning for those who propped up Saddam when they needed him? Will he head straight to Hell or hold the boat for those who come behind?

I'm wondering, though. Is there money in growing lollypops? Can I get set-aside money if I file to not grow lollypops? If so, how many acres of lollypops should I not grow?
I'm already not growing 3 rows of soybeans for the new crushing plant. Can I not grow soybeans and lollypops together?
And, what about Jerusalem artichokes? Is anybody still not growing them or have they all changed over to not growing sugar beets?

Owen thinks it's peachy. Dave Diamond is appalled.
Steve Nass sticks out his tongue at the grown-ups in the room. It looks as if he's been picked to carry on the John Gard infantile style of governance.
Turnover, NBA. The league will scrap its new microfiber composite ball and
bring back the old leather one beginning Jan. 1.
The NBA sent a memo to its teams Monday, telling them that the change would
be made for the remainder of the 2006-07 season. In the memo, NBA president Joel
Litvin said that Spalding had 450 new leather balls on hand for use.
So, it took about 4 months to see the need, analyze the consequences and make the change. Any idea why it took 6 years to get rid of Rumsfeld?

Do you suppose that there's any truth to the rumor that GWB is pushing for a moon base by 2024 as a way to replace Guantanamo?
The people of Louisiana have shown that Democrats can make choices every bit as poorly as Republicans can.
Is anybody else concerned that Brian Christianson, he of the small government Fulton Township takeover, he of the Koshkonong Lake District debacle is now the voice of the land swap deal? Should the County trade 367 acres for 465 acres without some sort of guarantees that the promises of the developers will come true? Are there just too many questions to be answered by Thursday's board meeting? I think so.

To be fair, Rep. Elton Gallegly (R-Calif.), who had intended to retire this year, only to be persuaded to run again, wondered whether the new schedule was more than symbolic.

"This may be the most bizarre recommendation, but I am sincere," Sununu
said. "I'm not saying it's not an issue or it's not important, but
proportionally speaking, stop complaining about health care."
Health care "is so darn expensive," he said, "because it's worth it."
Isn't it refreshing to see a Republican willing to tell business leaders to stop complaining and take care of the big picture?

I've not seen many sites that I'd like to add lately but Jay pointed out one that I think we'll all find useful. The WisOpinion Political Blog Search Engine is up and running. It allows you to search all of the blogs listed on the WO site, active or not.
Check it out. The Link is right over there.
Tearing people down doesn't build a strong workforce. It's time to start working to get benefits for all workers.
The Recess Supervisor calls it jealousy. I call it short-sightedness.
