What can you find in this week's Isthmus? Highlights from the latest issue follow:
- Apparently, you don't have to get plastered to go to the UW. Mary Ellen Gabriel reports on students who've opted out of the drinking life, and survived.
- In the wake of neighborhood complaints of growing crime problems on Madison's west side, Isthmus asked the crimefighting duo of Paul Soglin and David Blaska how they'd handle things. They, of course, obliged.
- On a lighter note, man about town Kenneth Burns takes us to his favorite campus-area nightspots, and Tom Laskin flags touring bands to watch out for this autumn. Not to be outdone, Linda Falkenstein picks some great places to eat (cheap!).
- "If you want to be a Badger, just come along with me": Live the dream at Sconnie Nation. (Mad about your cheese tie, dahling.)
