Good morning Google, Wisconsin! No, that is not what people decided on at the Google meeting last night, but that doesn't mean I can't do it. Companies aren't women they don't understand hard-to-get. High of 52, low of 43 with some showers.
Where the hell was this benevolence when I was in high school? Madison schools considering making Tuesday "late start day."
Almost 100 citizens get out to support Google Fiber, including yours truly. I made a couple insignificant comments on the event.

UW partners up with international business schools to offer a new masters degree.
It's official. Nor more legal salvia divinorum in Wisconsin. Doyle sold out to the DARE lobby. Frankly, if I had to choose one drug to be illegal, it would be salvia. The ten minutes of insanity that salvia divinorum gives you is a threat to social order.

Downtown Madison Inc. comes up with its endorsements for County Board. Still neutral on District 5.
And the Cap Times chastises the VP of the Sheriff Deputies Union, who recently alleged that Sup. Bret Hulsey raised concerns about police overtime pay because members of his family have had run-ins with law enforcement. Hulsey's opponent is in my poli sci discussion, and I took advantage of the opportunity to interview him last week.
Sen. Jim Sullivan (D-Wauwatosa) introduces more stringent payday loan bill that would limit payday loans to $900. Assembly Speaker Mike Sheridan says he is no longer dating a payday lobbyist.
