UP: Madison armed robber. A man who's been holding up Madison gas stations and other businesses with a handgun draws a sympathetic response from Madison police, who think he's feeding a drug addiction. Lt. David McCaw tells the press, "This kid is just in desperate need of help." Somebody please arrest this guy so he can get it!
DOWN: Jim Doyle. As a candidate for governor, he promised to restore the political independence of the state DNR secretary, by removing it as a cabinet position. As governor, he's done nothing to make this happen and now opposes legislation to do so. No wonder Doyle's new budget includes $6.6 million for a Dane County manure digester. Just put it in the executive residence.
