Is it possible the Madison school district will finally use the tools of Act 10 to save money by making teachers contribute to their health care premiums? As I report at, the answer is “sort of.” Under the proposal discussed at a preliminary budget meeting Monday night, a “differentiated premium contribution plan” would require […]

I doubt there’s a picture of Waukesha Mayor Shawn Reilly getting the key to the city in Havana and posing with Fidel Castro. But in Madison, it’s apparently a requirement of office, and the profile picture on Mayor Paul Soglin’s Facebook page. One comment on the photo, but typical of the other comments: One of […]

I believe it’s not too late for young actors to audition for what promises to be a truly awful theatrical experience in Madison, “Greetings From FitzWalkerstan.” As I wrote recently for RightWisconsin, this play is as awful as it sounds. Lest you think I am judging the play by its cover, the main character is […]

As Newt Gingrich once said about the Occupy Movement protesters, “Go get a job after you take a bath.” According to a new study, a person’s politics may dictate the way they smell: In the study, 125 participants rated the attractiveness of smells from strong liberals and strong conservatives, but the participants couldn’t see the […]

I had to laugh at this one.

Somehow I don’t think Republican legislators are missing anything. By the way, what a nice way for our lefty protesters in Madison to talk about our veterans on Veterans Day. Such […]

Not that you need reminding, but astrology is a complete waste of time. But if you need proof, consider Brett Healy of the MacIver Institute and Madison Mayor Paul Soglin are both celebrating birthdays today. Yeah, explain that, astrology fans. Print this entry

Christian? Married? Thinking romantic getaway? I’m not sure I would trust this website’s judgment. It’s like a travel brochure inviting the early Christians to Rome to see the lions. Print this entry

The headline at the Capitol Times, “Anti-abortion bus tour co-opted by protesters in Madison.” Co-opted, for those of you who don’t speak Madison protestor drum language, means “shouted down.” I have news for the protestors in Madison. This is not what Democracy looks like. This is what fascism looks like. Among the protestors was Madison […]

She’s my wife’s favorite protestor. Print this entry
