UP: City of Madison. A laptop computer stolen last Friday from a Human Resources Department office, containing the Social Security numbers of 300 to 500 city employees, is recovered and turned over to police, who say no sensitive information was accessed. The thief was evidently unable to log on. As Nelson would say, "Ha-ha!"
DOWN: Steve Nass. The Republican Assembly rep from Whitewater rips state Supreme Court Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson, calling her use of the UW-Madison's website to solicit campaign workers "clearly unseemly, unethical and possibly illegal." Nass and the state GOP have similarly used UW websites to attract interns. Oops.
