Sun rose in the east, sky is still blue, and Leibham is running for congress

In the least surprising news of the day, State Sen Joe Leibham announced he’s running for congress. From the press release: Leibham, a resident and taxpayer of the 6th Congressional District, lives in Sheboygan with his wife, Heather, and their three young children. Leibham has represented portions of Sheboygan, Manitowoc, Calumet and Fond du Lac counties in the state Senate and the greater Sheboygan... [Read more]

Blame it on Rio

Movie theaters have come a long way since I was a kid. But despite the advances in movie theater seating, there is just not enough leg room for you to get really comfortable for your nap during Rio 2. So unfortunately I was awake through much of the predictable plot, the annoying cut-out characters, and the worn-out Hollywood environmentalist orthodoxy. The animated movie, a cartoon in every sense... [Read more]

Rape and Game of Thrones

One of the annoyances of the Star Wars series of films is the ridiculous treatment of Darth Vader in Return of the Jedi. Luke Skywalker says to his dad, “I sense the good in you, father.” Um, Luke? Do you remember that part in the first movie where he blew up the entire planet of Alderaan with the big laser thingy on something called a Death Star? But we were all happy at the end when the “redeemed”... [Read more]

Is there a psychic in the house?

The lovely Doreen from Waukesha and I saw Theresa Caputo at the Riverside Theater Wednesday night. For those of you who are unfamiliar with her, she is the “Long Island Medium” from the TLC network. She talks to the dead and always leaves the subject of the reading with a positive message. I’m not going to get into whether the whole talk-to-the-dead thing is a giant con or if Caputo... [Read more]

Wigderson and his critics

Yeah, well, you knew it was too quiet. The Sound Offs in the Waukesha Freeman attacking me are real winners. Just when I think I wrote a really good column, too. WMH, Freeman columnists I am calling to personally thank those fabulous senior citizens that volunteer their time at Waukesha Memorial Hospital. I cannot say enough good about those people. They are fantastic and they make things a lot easier... [Read more]

A kind of government to show your kids

Waukesha Freeman 4/17/14 Page A7 Opinion A kind of government to show your kids When I get asked about what I am going to write about in the post-Jeff Scrima era, I laugh and point out the number of races unfolding in the state for the fall elections. My son, Will, has a different suggestion. In true Wigderson style, he said, “You could write more about me.” On Tuesday night, the family took a... [Read more]

Petri out, Leibham likely in

“It seems that destiny has taken a hand.” – Rick, from Casablanca Yeah, about that whole primary challenge to Congressman Tom Petri by State Sen Glenn Grothman? It just got whacked. This is from a press release from State Sen Joe Leibham, State Sen. Joe Leibham (pronounced: LĪ–päm) announced Friday that he will take the next few days to consider running for Congress in Wisconsin’s... [Read more]
