Re: Who are you voting for in the mayoral primary?

There was a time, way back, when impending change demanded a candidate from outside the usual lists. Finally, such a candidate won and it can be argued that he suited as a response to those impending changes for awhile. Now more impending changes face us, here in Madison and, as then, across the wor...

Re: Konkel fired from TRC

I read the whole 3 part thing. I'm willing to read the entirety of any real response from a board member. What this episode tells folks who might be considering entry to the stage of non-profit work in the realm of real rubber-meets-road stuff that requires struggle over years (and not just short te...

Re: Midwest Marxism Conference, Nov 17

"Venezuela" is one of the current buttons, right?

Hey, If they kept the lawn mowed and were inclined to pay local taxes, it would probably be better than some of those assholes up there.

Quaint little Epic street scene "wizardry"

https://isthmus.com/arts/visual-arts/pamela-price-f5-theming/ Anybody remember the old "Fort Dells?" They staged shootouts every hour on the hour and you can buy fake Native American relics, as I recall. Does the Verona Epic campus have a big enough watercourse that they might re-stage th...

Re: Looking for creative yard water management solutions

I have an issue where water channeled between houses infuses to a depth of about 6-7 feet causing enough pressure to come thru the basement wall. I need a way to move ...

Re: Looking for creative yard water management solutions

No, actually. It's not that I don't like the price tag. It's that my neighbor actually spent the money and he still got water in his basement. I want it to work. And it would also be nice if it wasn't ugly. I live here.

Looking for creative yard water management solutions
