Just a few random thoughts on this snowy/rainy/downright ugly day:
- The weather out there is nasty, so if you’re out and about, be careful. As the day gets colder, things are going to freeze up and get even nastier, so try to stay home and enjoy a good book (or a good blog) if you can.
- By a 5-0 vote, the Milwaukee Board of School Directors Committee on Innovation/School Reformpassed the communicable disease prevention program, which would allow for the limited distribution of male condoms in many of the city’s public high schools. The proposal will now will go to the full board for final consideration. Personally, I think this is a good idea, because it’s clear to anyone with half a brain that while we might want all our teenagers to be abstinent from sexual activity, it’s simply not realistic.
- Tom Haudricourt of theMilwaukee Journal Sentinel is reporting the Brewers hot and heavy for left handed starting pitcher Randy Wolf, who had a solid season last year as a member of the starting rotation for the Los Angeles Dodgers. By my estimation Wolf is a solid starting pitcher (and he’s lefthanded, which is surely a bonus), but I can’t help but wonder if his numbers were helped by the fact that he played in Chavez Ravine, which is widely considered a pitchers’ ballpark. At any rate, Wolf would probably be an improvement over the motley crew of starting pitchers the Brewers have at this point in the offseason, so hopefully they’ll get him signed.
- Over at “Real Debate” Wisconsin, Fred Dooley has his undies in a bunch over nasty comments supposedly made by liberal readers of his blog, while conveniently ignoring the fact that some of his conservative commenters aren’t immune from vitriolic comments. Apparently, Fred Dooley is a big fan of selective outrage, but I’m willing to bet the “comments from the left” that were so outrageous to Fred didn’t come from the sources he thinks. After all, it’s not very difficult to post as someone else, as we all learned after the Badger Blogger debacle.
