This year we are continuing our tradition of taking a look back to last year’s predictions.  You would think I would learn each year that making so many predictions just means I have more work to do the following year correcting them. I’m also increasing the odds I’ll be wrong. Some people think I’m just […]

Every year I make predictions, and every year we check them. Unlike other pundits, I actually hold myself accountable. It’s the masochist in me. This year promises to be an interesting year for Wisconsinites. Wisconsin’s new health care laws will slowly go into effect after the Obamacare delay.

Instead of arresting the obnoxious protestors and expelling the students who were preventing the sale of pizza today, the Vice Chancellor announced that the pizza stand would be closed through summer. Protesters on Tuesday put […]

Every year I make a list of predictions, and every year we check last year’s predictions. This year I consulted my spirit guide Joan, a bartender I knew in a previous life, to help me see deep into the future (or at least the next few months). After rubbing the magic martini shaker, I began […]

You’ll have to scroll to the end of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel article for the interesting part: The steelworkers union has helped workers organize a national boycott of Palermo’s, which makes frozen pizza under store brand names, including the giant retailer Costco. “Our involvement with the immigration workforce extends beyond Palermo’s and Voces,” said Maria […]
