Brunch Links


Should be pleasant today but not as nice as tomorrow, when it’s supposed to get up in the 60’s. World Series starts tonight. Eating in Madison A to Z described today’s brunch from Northside Family Restaurant as lacking nuance.



Badger Herald ed board piece, almost definitely written by Sean Kittridge (outside chance written by Joey Labuz), supports lifting state ban on nuclear power. But somebody – Eric Schmidt I assume – dissents, as does the Democratic Party of Milwaukee.

Come on. Let’s get this student loan thing resolved. And do I smell a Badger Herald feature story? This time its on student health care.

Zach Schuster says environmentalists should look to microbreweries for inspiration.

ASM is now getting in on the ALRC politics.

Many computers hacked in the Chemistry building and thousands of social security numbers exposed. C’mon guys. I’d expect that carelessness from the Comp-Lit department – not the lab dorks.

Roof gardens and libraries. You can’t say no to that.

    Jack, the dissent was indeed mine. This isn’t a breach of confidentiality, since dissents are supposed to appear in the paper and online signed.

    Mr. and Mrs. Christiansen have certainly come up with a clever strategy to get their 19-year-old son to get a job and move out of their house. They might want to find a proof-reader for their website, though. Their report of Jared’s birth makes it sound like he’s his own uncle.

      Indeed, Ordinary Jill. I was just about to comment on this sentence: “Jared Gary Christiansen was born on October 21,1991, to the parents of Todd and Rosemary Christiansen, both of whom are truck drivers.”

      So he was born to his parents’ parents? All four of them? Would he be his own uncle? What the hell?
