HDDTTWA
Years ago, before the period of media newsroom devouring, my
friend George Hesselberg would occasionally devote his column in the Wisconsin

There’s Retired, And Then There’s RETIRED
Paul Ryan isn’t retiring. He’s not running for re-election.
Big difference. My guess is he’s not even retiring from politics. I’ll bet he will soon become
another highly-overpaid lobbyist. And maybe he’ll accept an invitation to a
corporate board or two, to...

Radioactive News
I spent a bit of time this morning watching Fox News. I had a minor surgical operation on my foot a few days ago and the doc said I should take a break from work every couple hours and elevate my foot. So, during my foot-elevation time around 9:30, I scanne...

I strolled into a pharmacy on the west side of Madison
yesterday afternoon to buy some allergy pills. Claritin D, to be specific. This

My Venerable Road Warrior SUV’s “SERVICE ENGINE SOON” warning
lit up about a month ago, a couple days after the guys at Zimbrick had just
given it a little more than fifteen hundred bucks’ worth of TLC. The Road
Warrior is just shy of turning a hundred thou...

Why Does Madison Tolerate This Annual Auditory Assault?
I sometimes daydream that I am in possession of a
high-powered drone, equipped with an infrared camera, possessing the capability
of dropping a small but extremely powerful munition that could be dropped and
detonated about 50 feet over the head of anyone b...

This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things
No, this isn't photoshopped. That's how Fox News introduced the story to its millions and millions of viewers last night. In a few minutes, they pulled the "Resigned" story back.  And then spent the rest of the night feigning befuddlement about why anyone w...

Charlie Hartwig, or, as his friends and colleagues knew him, Charlie Hart. Charlie
unexpectedly passed away Friday morning. This story is about the many years I

"Health Savings Accounts For All!" - Said The Man Behind The Curtain
The man who some, for reasons I’ll never understand call “The
Intellectual Leader Of The Republican Party”, was on the tube again today doing
his best to pitch the “replace” part of the “repeal and replace” he claims his

One Nation, Divisible By Fake News
This “fake news” thing is like an aging hi-yield nuclear
weapon.  It’s dangerous and unstable. And
it’s not a play-toy, though some practitioners of fake news, according to
multiple reports, just create fake news for the hell of it. Some are highly
