Re: "Brown Sugar" needs to be banned!

Thank you for the kind thoughts Penquin. And Neil Diamond is really rockin' in that video! He has a lot of soul in him too!

Re: "Brown Sugar" needs to be banned!

Probably no one remembers this thread--but I have been thinking about it recently. My nephews have been visiting me from out of town this summer. That has been very nice. Unfortunately, I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer earlier this year. I retired from my teaching position at the end of the sp...

Re: Edgewater THREE years later

I think it is good for Madison to revisit decisions from the past and look to see what went right and what went wrong. The Historic Edgewater Hotel, which some predicted would fail, has been reopened now for THREE years. What do you make of that?

Re: Biergarten that Soglin opposed now open

Snoqueen, at the time that the Edgewater reopened you made the prediction that it would go bankrupt. It has now been open for three years. Do you still predict it will fail?

Re: Biergarten that Soglin opposed now open

Years ago many on this forum predicted that the then new Historic Landmark Edgewater hotel would fail and close.

I guess some of you didn't get your wish.

Re: Biergarten that Soglin opposed now open

I also think there will continue to be an uproar from the many people (and families) who love Olbrich Gardens but who may enjoy a beer but in a proper bar setting. fflambeau, it is not located in Olbrich botanical gardens. Instead, it is located across Atwood Avenue and down the hill in Olbrich PAR...

Biergarten that Soglin opposed now open

If you remember, at the eleventh hour during the council debate, Soglin trashed this proposal for Olbrich Park and tried to kill it. He failed to get his way. I biked to it today and as was easily predicted, it is quite lovely. All ages were there including families. Will Soglin and Council presiden...

Re: Koval calls Soglin a pussy

There are many countries that have less gun regulation than the U.S. and they don't have the crime problem that some of our cities have. This is why middle America hates liberals. Progressives never blame the thugs who terrorize their poor neighborhoods, they instead blame everyone else's right to e...

Re: Koval calls Soglin a pussy

There is not a crime wave in Madison. This is just another craven big government bureaucrat trying to pad his pockets at the expense of us taxpayers.

Re: Koval calls Soglin a pussy

I actually agree with Soglin here. It is disgusting that Koval is trying to get more of our tax dollars by whipping up panic and hysteria.

I am sure small government bdog agrees with me and soggy on this one.

Koval calls Soglin a pussy

""Perhaps it would be better if he would give me the benefit of the doubt and have a conversation about it with me one to one rather than send out a pretext email, which frankly need not go to any of the other agency heads when his only end-gain recipient should have been me,” the chief sa...
