Interesting. I wish I had gone to the City Council meeting. Ald. Bridget Maniaci ended up putting Eagon’s old proposal (to make a student voting member on the ALRC permanent) to a vote. It narrowly failed, 10-9. If any of you guys could give me the total tally, with all the yeas and nays, I would appreciate it. Tacos from Pasqual’s.
I highly recommend going to the Herald article and watching the video of what I think is Ald. Thuy grilling Daily Cardinal editor Charley Brace and Herald managing editor Kevin Bargnes on student turnout. Brace, who knows very well that turnout in ASM elections is pathetic, does his best to first avoid giving the actual numbers: “turnout was 50% higher this year.” Of course, the video doesn’t really get good until Thuy asks the two gentleman if they drink.
Interesting Herald article on the changes in funding for student organizations in the 10 years since the Supreme Court’s ruling on a UW student lawsuit.
Dave Zweifel says Justice Prosser needs to “get a clue.” And stop throwing temper tantrums.
State Journal ed board says drunk driving law needs to be strengthened before it comes to a vote.
GOP Chair calls Obama’s visit to Madison a “smoke screen” to distract attention from those big Republican wins last night. You see, usually when a president’s party loses two gubernatorial elections, the president is supposed to spend all day talking about it, rather than working on other policy.
Three of four school funding referenda in Wisconsin failed last night. Another vindication of GOP victory? The ad next to the article with Sean Hannity’s stunning mug certainly thinks so.
Oh, and Obama’s in town. I don’t care, do you?
