Governor Walker Will Talk To Eleven Tribes But Just Not to One

Before I get accused of ignoring the rest of the world of politics in favor of teasing Governor Walker, I’ll announce that this is the last governor post for February 2012…no…really! But isn’t it just a little bit interesting that Governor Walker will talk to eleven Wisconsin Native American tribes about a new casino but […]

Governor Walker Rewrites Portions of the Oxford English Dictionary!

In his discussion today with the editorial board of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, covering the expansion of off reservation tribal casinos in Wisconsin, Governor Scott Walker suggested that he would only approve a new casino if the other tribes reach a ‘consensus’ on permitting a new casino!

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Elicits a WTF? Moment.

All during the football season, news junkies like myself have to endure almost daily color photos and headline stories above the fold on the front page of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel about the Green Bay Packers…even on bye weekends.

Yesterday Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett gave his ‘State of the City’ address and covered any number […]

Where I Don’t Agree With Congresswoman Gwen Moore

I just published a press release from US Congresswoman Gwen Moore (WI – 4) voicing her reasons for opposing State Representative Joe Sanfelippo’s bill to blow up Milwaukee County Government as we know it. Ms. Moore’s press release covers a number of salient points about the value of county government and what would be lost […]
