The quote of the day comes from that great American philosopher, Frank Costanza: Elaine: You were born in Italy? Frank Costanza: Yeah, that’s why I could never become president. That’s also why, from an early age, I never had any interest in politics. I refuse to vote. THEY DON’T WANT ME, I DON’T WANT THEM. […]

California State University at Fullerton is cracking down on coeds celebrating Taco Tuesdays. The Alpha Delta Pi sorority is trouble because of sombreros and sarapes. Seriously. In addition to being banned from this semester’s recruitment, the sorority also faces a year of probation, through December 31, 2015. ADPi must also develop and promote a “We’re […]

The United States Postal Service is thinking of closing a few offices (peacefully) to save money, and the local liberals are unhappy about the ones targeted for closure here: What do black people need a post office for anyway? (Memo to Bill Christofferson: They’re “African Americans” now. Oh, and “Uppity” is no longer PC.) Actually, […]

I told him even though we have opposing views, and Obama won. I told him don’t despair over the election loss. I suggested to him that […]

In today’s Waukesha Freeman, a caller to the Sound Off line makes an excellent point: Schilke column In his Nov. 18 column, Tim Schilke quoted freaky rocker (his definition) Marilyn Manson as a source for his anti-gun position. Last week he was referring to King Arthur’s court and Celtic legends in an attempt to justify […]

Jeff at Five Points, an advocate of bringing for-profit baseball to Frame Park, tries to dismiss the parking issue. If you look carefully in each of his pictures you can see the “No Parking” signs. He suggests maybe those restrictions could be lifted on game days. Since there is no plan presented and no study […]
