UP: Smoking bans. Fitchburg implements its ban on smoking in bars and restaurants; two small bars and a bowling alley are exempt until 2011, to give them time to adjust. Monona and Middleton are also considering bans.
DOWN: Michael Gableman. Yeah, he won, becoming the first challenger in 41 years to oust a sitting state Supreme Court justice. But he did it in a way that degraded himself, the judiciary and the state, with sleazy, race-baiting ads and a propensity for outright lies, capped by his election-night whopper, "I'm very proud of the fact that we ran a positive campaign." Call him Justice Fableman.
