Re: Snow (winter) tires.

For years, I used to switch out my rims/tires during the winter to a dedicated snow set, and the snow tires really are awesome in the snow. That said, they have downsides as well, including wearing rather quickly on dry roads, extra noise, and extra expense/hassle having to switch them out every win...

Re: What's up with Baraboo?

Agree with Weather Bob. While at face value this appears totally awful, keep in mind these are 16-17 year old kids. Kids that age do stupid / inappropriate / offensive / implusive stuff sometimes just to get a reaction and "rebel", or for no other reason than immaturity. One kid probably d...

Re: Janesville

I'm about halfway through it and agree it is a good read. Comparing today's world economy with the much more insular, "Made in America" economy back in the 50's - 90's is fascinating. This story can surely be told across many business types, from auto manufacturing to Janesville's own Park...

Re: If This Isn't Scaring Republicans, It Should

The man said he'd never voted in his life so I sent him to the registration table. This couple was in their late 50s or early 60s. I wondered what motivated them to start voting in this election. I mentioned this in another thread (on getting Millennials to vote), but I wonder if it was Donald Trum...

Re: How should we encourage more Millenials to vote?

I'm technically a Millenial (35 y.o.), although just barely, and I have a hard time calling myself that (I relate more closely to Gen X) Anyways, I can add this to the above list: - Elect Donald Trump as president (which already happened). I think the fact that this idiot / scam artist got elected w...

Re: Shooting at WORT

Good detective work. Can you give a link? I'm not finding anything. I heard it was hip-hop music and the shooter got inside by entering pass codes, so he knew the place and targeted the dj's. I still don't see political implications for this. Do some checking around on Eugene Crisler; dude has a ch...

Re: Shooting at WORT

Although I'm certainly not sure if it's related to the shooting, some light detective work shows that, of the 2 DJs heard on air prior to the shooting, one of them (Brother Eugene) appears to be an ex-con with significant criminal history; he had a very recent felony warrant out for his arrest issue...

Re: Madison Media Institute closing

I'm glad this place is shut down. Everyone I've known that went to MMI (including family members) did not end up with any sort of a career in that field as a result of that education. I would go as far to say it was a complete waste of money for them and a scam based on how much money they charged. ...

Re: Boston Stores closing

My thoughts are along the same lines as gargantua. Seems like this "big box store surrounded acres of parking" is just becoming an outdated means of retail presence. It may have worked in 1979 and even in 1997, but it doesn't work any longer. I feel like "anchor tenants" in shopp...

Re: F-35's at Truax

I'm of the thought that housing in the flight path of Truax / Dane County Airport should be priced appropriately, i.e. it's cheaper because you have to deal with the noise. If you don't like it, pony up some more bucks and move somewhere else. I'm not sure if reality (housing prices) reflect the abo...

Re: Chase bank shooting

Anyone here actually been in this Chase branch recently? It's hard for me to believe this place was an "easy target" I was in there about a year ago or so and I would say the security in there even then seemed pretty "hardcore", although I am not an expert in such matters. I reme...

Re: Car thefts

Do you or have you ever had young kids? Seriously? So shaming people who leave their cars running and unlocked gets you mad but you have no problem with people shifting the blame for their poor, wussy decisions onto their children, eh? You're cute. No, I don't have young kids. But I've been a young...

Re: Car thefts

Hey, you know what else isn't fun? Having your car stolen? It'll be a lot harder to get your kid to daycare before work without a car, doncha think? Do you or have you ever had young kids? Just curious. I'll rent a damn car until I can buy a new one in the (IMO) unlikely event that the thing gets s...

Re: Car thefts

Thought I would mention that I do have a 1.5 year old son who I take to daycare every day during the week. You all are free to come over and tell the little guy to "suck it up" and sit in the freezing cold car. Especially easy for you to say if you don't have young kids. Look, if I had a g...

Re: Car thefts

I would like to nominate the above for one of the 10 most stupid posts I've ever seen. As a preteen, I stood outside, waiting for a bus for nearly an hour, at night when the air temperature was-20 . I'd amuse myself by watching how fast my spit would freeze on the sidewalk. You know what? I think p...
