UP: Nancy Mistele. In the single most important measure of electoral viability - the amount of campaign cash available for commercials - the Dane County exec challenger scores a coup, raising $154,177 between Jan. 1 and March 23, compared to just $101,412 for incumbent Kathleen Falk. But voters will still get to play a role in the outcome, via next Tuesday's election.
DOWN: Robert Morlino. Madison's bishop again gets himself in hot water for his tyrannical conduct, this time for firing a beloved church worker in Beloit for refusing to renounce her belief that the church should treat women as equals. How long will area Catholics continue to put up with this guy?
