Re: Badger football

Western Kentucky is getting $1,350,000 to come and play at Camp Randall. What's up with that? I had read, sometime within the last two years, that there is a dearth of Division 1 nonconference opponents for the Power Five conferences, since they don't schedule much against each other. So, there's a...

Re: Why I oppose the Death Penalty, period

I don’t oppose the death penalty in theory. If and when we can know for certain that ONLY guilty people will be executed, that the penalty will be applied fairly and only for exceptionally heinous crimes (mass murder, terrorism, torture and/or rape followed by murder are examples) Then and only the...

'This is what climate change looks like': UW-Madison Center for Limnology experiences flooding I mean, isn't this just exactly what weather experts complain about when we confuse weather and climate? I'm no climate change denier, but you can't take one rain storm and prove global warming any more t...

Re: Secretary of State candidates

by the way, what was the rationale for moving the autumn primary from september to august? i think i was out of town for most of the year that was done . . . Another way to disenfranchise and dilute student votes. Many of them are probably still at home in their safely gerrymandered districts. Also...

Re: Duck boats

Weather and command/control issues aside, it seems like a key issue is that there were side windows on this thing, as well as the more typical roof. I have to think that there would have been dramatically fewer fatalities if the sides of the boat were open. Still rough water for non-swimmers, but at...

Re: Crossfit Games

To be honest, I don't find it interesting. This is coming from someone that enjoys watching almost any sort of racing - motor sports, horse racing, track and field, swimming, Tour de France, whatever. But never had any interest in this (or triathalon) Not throwing any shade at the talents of the par...

Re: The Immigration Debate

Where are the conservatives on this board? Why don't they weigh in as to whether or not they support Trump's policy of separating children from their parents? Only a moderate as compared to the US or the rest of Wisconsin, but I'm sure I am a John Bircher as compared to Madison. I would like curren...

Re: Sprecher's

That is good news - that Columbus bowling alley is a nice, new place. I think the owners maybe just overbuilt as compared to their cash reserves. I'm guessing Sprecher's has a better chance of making a go of it.

Re: Life after college in Madison

Memorial is a great high school. Memorial can be a good school. I think it is good for kids that are high-performing and motivated, or socially mature. I think they have a lot of help available for kids that struggle. But if your kids are kind of quiet and like to slip into the background, it is pr...

Re: Sonic Drive-in Closed?

I always meant to try out Sonic. When they first opened many folks told me it was good. These folks, by the way, were boomers. We went there - the ice cream treats and stuff were fine, but the food was just meh to me. When I grew up we had an A&W with car hops, as well as two locally owned plac...

Oh, well.

Re: Roseanne

I don't know if that is totally true. It's totally true. (Just curious: in your calculus, is Samantha Bee higher on the power scale than Ivanka Fucking Trump?) You said that it is different because it came from a woman and not a man, not because of the relative position as compared to the target of...
