Yesterday was odd. Not only because the Phillies managed to hold a lead, but because despite having a high number of visitors to the site, there were no comments. I would like to emphasize my support for comments, no matter when. Especially ones that stimulate dialogue. And especially ones coming from Mayor Dave. Partly cloudy with some sun and a high of 50, low of 35 in Madtown. Eating in Madison presents Kabul’s spinach stew.
“So we have to ask: Why would the student alder give up so easily? It is not as if Mr. Eagon stands to lose anything by keeping the language and seeing the council’s reaction.” Hmm. Knowing the Badger Herald they probably would have been even harsher had they not spent so much time dealing with Eagon in the past weeks.
But the Daily Cardinal seems to not have gotten the message that Eagon changed the language of the proposal.
Nevertheleess, Mayor Dave clears that up for everyone: “I cannot support the proposal to create a student seat on the ALRC as a matter of right in city ordinance.”
Faculty Senate overwhelmingly rebukes Biddy Martin’s plans to restructure grad school: ‘[Sociology Professor Bob] Hauser said the provost’s initial expectation that faculty would welcome his proposal was a “major blunder and breach of trust.”’
Bob Dunne’s back in action. He presented new Edgewater development plans to the city Plan Commission yesterday.
Conservatives becoming very vocal about increased car insurance rates.
Scott Walker’s current constituents are raising hell about his budget. Granted, the meeting was likely packed by AFSCME.
I never thought I’d hear a Republican say something so true: “There’s more to fear from Health Care than terrorists.” If only you inserted [lack of] in front of health care she’d be the Nobel Prize winner.
