What a beeeeautiful morning in Madtown! High of 40, low of 18. I know of at least a few people who are planning to play frisbee on Bascom today. When is the Oscars? Either way, you don’t need to watch anymore because the Daily Cardinal tells us who’s going to win what.
Some day I’m going to get my camera back from Paul Nicholas Nugent, who lives on Pinckney St, and I will take pictures of food myself. But until then, I sure do appreciate those people from Eating in Madison A to Z. It looks like some Friday fish fry from Eddie’s Alehouse.
$5.1 million federal stimulus grant to increase speed and connectivity between Madison’s internet tubes.
Dane County Regional Transit Authority promises referendum for any sales tax increase.
Senate gives up on Milwaukee Schools now that Wisconsin is out of running for federal race to the top funds. Nevertheless, it approves a ban on health insurers using alcohol or drug use as reason to deny coverage.

This is Brenda Konkel’s idea of a baby round-up.

I can’t wait to see the ulterior motives behind the Assembly’s delay of the scalping ticket bill.
