OK, brunch is coming at the right time today. A lot of items from Wispolitics, which might usually indicate laziness on my part but today genuinely reflects a lot of good state political stories. Your meal is courtesy of Kickshaw, which served the people of Eating in Madison A to Z this creature of the lakes.
First business of the day: Address all existing feuds with other bloggers.

Creameries selling "old-time" flavor of milk. That's just milk with chunks of butter in it, right?
Jason Smathers, Herald editor-in-chief, hopes Analiese Eicher will finally connect students to their county government. As usual, he doesn't mince words when criticizing Dist. 5 Supervisor Wyndham Manning.
Tired of being kicked around town...Greyhound just leaves.
Great! Now you can call Tom Barrett whenever you want. You can define his campaign. I am definitely going to let him know about his extraterrestrial policy, or lack thereof.
