A new blog gives the lord of Stately Blaska Manor his props:
Once upon a time I actually believed Blaska to be an extremely unintelligent, deranged man. A delightful mixture of Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck. But after going to the store, buying a pair of suspenders and pulling my pants up as high as they could go (the nipple), I realized that not only should this man be elected mayor of Madison, but he should be appointed as dictator so that he can truly implement his philosophy on parenting on the whiny council and the unappreciative citizens. [The Sconz]
Mr. Sconz also supports driver's licenses for illegal aliens, taxpayer-subsidized in-state college tuition for their children, upping the capital gains tax, imposing a new tax on oil companies (which will be passed on regardless), and opening wide the prison doors.
Now that is unintelligent!
Undies in a bundle
Forward Our Motto (but backward our politics) insists I am the underwear police.
Ah but where are you directing this "discipline?" That's the key part: being useful, and not lashing out at something merely because you don't like it.
Are we really talking about something as inconsequential as on which side we part our hair? (Does anyone part their hair any more? Does anyone have hair any more?) I don't like harpsichord; don't mean I want to make it illegal.
The gangsta look inherent in the low-riders thing is akin to a suspicious lump or unusual bleeding. It's an early warning sign that needs attention, stat! Or, we could wait until he empties his chamber. Might be too late, then. Might be.
In any event, I didn't make it illegal. Madison Ordinance 26.01 EXPOSURE OF PERSON does that for us. Nor am I insisting that the police be called each and every time there is a quality of life issue. I took care of the matter myself once.
Life in the hood
Sunday - The Madison Police Dept received a report of an individual on foot, described above, shooting at a moving vehicle in the area of Hammersley Road and Teresa Terrace. There was evidence of shots being fired located at the scene. Later on a MPD officer saw a vehicle matching the description. This vehicle did have a bullet hole in the trunk. [An arrest was made Tuesday morning]
Monday - Took a bike ride Monday afternoon down Hammersley Road until I got within sight of Loreen Drive. Lots of commotion. Maybe a dozen people yelling and beating on a dog. The dog appeared to be a pit bull. It had in its jaw the head of another dog and was not letting go. I executed a swift U-turn.
Tuesday - 5700 Russett Road. Building resident calls reporting 2 shots fired with a m/b running away. When officers arrive they are approached by victim and says he was just shot at by a m/b, approx 17yr, 5'5", skinny, braided hair w/ black beads, wearing a black short sleeve shirt. Victim was in the driveway of his building when he was approached by the suspect, who asked for a cigarette. Victim doesn't smoke so couldn't help, then the suspect pulled a smaller smoke black semi-auto out of his front pants pocket. Victim starts running and says the suspect started after him. Victim heard 2 shots fired. After that the suspect ran in opposite direction.
Liberals have had their hatchets out for conservative blogger/writer Jessica McBride for some time now. They are whooping for joy at her admission that she had an affair with Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn some time after she wrote a cover story about him for Milwaukee Magazine. Its editor, Bruce Murphy, is no conservative. Murphy asserts that the affair began well after the story was published, thus negating any conflict of interest - a fact that was ignored by Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reporter Dan Bice, who broke the story.
Now, as a result of Bice's hatchet job, McBride has been branded and ridiculed across the country, on countless Web sites and blogs, as a corrupt journalist. It's a tragedy for journalism, all right, but the real shame falls on Bice and his editors. [The McBride Affair, and how the Journal Sentinel got it dead wrong]
