Egad! Alan Lasee, representing DePere, will retire from the Legislature after 36 years of filling an otherwise empty chair. Who will call for capitol punishment now? His prize accomplishment--expansion of Highway 57 and a bridge in Sturgeon Bay. What would Wisconsin have done without him?
How much good news can we tolerate? In addition to Lasee's decision to retire, the DNR reported that deer hunters shot at fewer buildings this year. I'm not kidding. "Deer hunters shot dramatically fewer buildings" this year. Ten buildings were shot--that is down from 25 in 2008! Hey! Progress. Four shootings involved a rifle and four a shotgun. No report on the other building shootings. No indication of dead cows, dogs or other animals. Proud of you guys!
On Sunday I jumped on Harry Reid. He deserved it, but no one deserves the flow of hypocritical bloviating from Fox News and Michael Steele that followed. "Stop this train. I want to get off!" The GOP leader recently used the phrase "honest Injun" in a city where that slur on Native Americans was too much. (The NFL still calls its franchise the "Redskins.")
It is banker bonus time! I can hardly wait.

This is my prayer:
Dear Lord, please let politicians do as little damage as deer hunters. If it be thy will, let them shoot ten buildings and that's all. Turn their corruption, vote selling and influence peddling into shotgun slugs and propel them into the sides of ten buildings. This would be a glorious world if you could possibly do that. Thank you Lord.
