Brunch Links


Wow, strictly double-digits today. High of 25 and low of 12. Not the prettiest picture from the folks at Eating in Madison A to Z, but apparently this steak and toast from Prime Quarter got a good review.

Please click on the link so you don’t think I’m making this up. After Mike Sheridan and other Democrats blamed rumors of his possible resignation on payday loan lobbyists, it emerged that Sheridan was himself dating a lobbyist for the payday loan industry. That being said, it doesn’t look like the relationship is that serious yet.

The Madison Initiative Proposals: What got the nod and what got the finger.

One important fact has been overlooked: Mendota Court, especially at night, is only historic in the sense that it’s old.

Good article from a freshman about unemployment and despair in the Badger State. I do not think she will be able to triple major in English, Spanish and French. All three languages are related, but sadly, the credits are not.

This one in the Cardinal is even better: “Let’s build small empires that crutch the crippled legs of working America, not succumb to the large ones that suffocate it.”

John Nichols: Even with the support of the Wisconsin State Journal, the [2nd district] Republicans simply have not been able to mount a meaningful campaign since 2000…

Some people in Marlin Schneider’s district excited about the new Jobs bill Doyle is about to sign.

Jim, you better think again if you think Tommy Thompson wouldn’t have a chance against Feingold.

Property taxes may be a bad word for no good reason. But a state sales tax increase looks like a good way to fund schools. Or just ask Bill Gates for a donation.

Which legislator hasn’t introduced one bill this session? Does it matter?

State Journal: Madison needs two train stops.

Some cheap and ambitious law students are available for foreclosure mediation.

Let’s place some wagers on which dorm will win the energy consumption competition. I’ve got my money on Chadbourne.

  1. Jim Says:

    Tommy won’t run because he couldn’t handle being a backbench Senator. Not enough attention on him.

  2. Todd Stevens Says:

    I’ll see your Chadbourne prediction and bet on Kronshage.

    • Jack Says:

      Actually, I realize now that Chadbourne is too big –– does not have nearly the sense of community that a lakeshore dorm would have. But Kronshage is the most normal of the Lakeshore dorms. Bradley Learning Community is clearly the best candidate.

  3. I'm not giving my name to a machine Says:

    Lakeshore dorms are like camp that’s real life.
