The UW system created a new job- Vice President of University Relations at the University of Wisconsin System. Many immensely qualified people applied for this job, unfortunately we found out that only one qualification mattered….the ability to kiss the ring of the republicans in charge of our state. For this important qualification, they found the […]

Posted May 29th, 2013 @ 8:43 AM by

Today is the day that we have been discussing for weeks. Today is the day that the legislature starts discussing public school funding.

The Mockery of the Madison Media as a Meaningful Medium

Posted February 26th, 2013 @ 8:48 AM by

The Madison School Board race has been interesting to say the least. For those of you scoring at home, three candidates declared their candidacy for Seat #5, Sarah Manski, TJ Mertz and Ananda Mirilli. Having three candidates meant that a primary was triggered to narrow the candidates on the April ballot to two. On primary […]
