YES, “Wisconsin should retain same-day voter registration"! I agree with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel editorial. WHY did our WI State Governor Scott Walker "escape to CA" to deliver his agenda "ON" Friday, 11/16/2012? What do YOU think?

TODAY – THANKSGIVING 2012 – Time to reflect on anniversaries. I AWOKE TODAY with a profound sense of GRATITUDE knowing that today is THANKSGIVING DAY! I HOPE you too awoke with a profound sense of GRATITUDE! Did YOU? YOUR comment? Having just seen Spielberg’s “LINCOLN” earlier this week, I was ready to be reminded by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s editorial,
“A respite from war,” that today is the 149th anniversary of the observance of the THANKSGIVING DAY which President Abraham Lincoln asked WE THE PEOPLE of the US to observe on the 4th Thursday of November 1863 when he issued a presidential proclamation on October 3, 1863. Meaningful special day.

Milton Superintendent being PAID - Part II - COMMENDATION and THANKS to NEIL JOHNSON for his conscientious and committed journalism to persist to get the TRUTH, the WHOLE TRUTH and NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH about the situation vis-à-vis our MILTON SCHOOL DISTRICT SUPERINTENDENT MIKE GARROW! The headline today is, “Garrow to get paid leave: Milton School Board president mum on further details about superintendent.” IF you are a citizen of the SCHOOL DISTRICT OF MILTON, I urge you to read this significant update on the “MESS” – yes, at least Board President Rob Roy has acknowledged that we have a “MESS” vis-à-vis our superintendent in our School District of Milton. And, we are going to pay through the nose to resolve the MESS. I await IMPATIENTLY AGAIN, the full disclosure of the “MESS.”

Vote of NO CONFIDENCE! Milton Board of Education - I lost my confidence in our Milton Board of Education this week with the LACK OF TRANSPARENCY as it extended its superintendent's leave through the remainder of this school year into JUNE 2013 without telling us - taxpayers - whether or NOT they are paying Dr. Garrow. What do YOU think?

“Ryan gets back to reality” - GOOD to hear STAN MILAM on WCLO again yesterday morning! His INTERVIEW with re-elected US HOUSE REPRESENTATIVE PAUL RYAN was broadcast. VERY valuable conversation with US House District #1 Rep. Paul Ryan. With Stan's incisive and poignant questions and Paul's forthc oming responses, I evaluate the interview to be “A+”. What is YOUR evaluation?

TODAY is our ELECTION DAY 2012! IF you have not yet voted, I hope you will go to the polls to VOTE TODAY! I voted early taking advantage of the in person absentee voting on the FIRST day of that voting day: Monday, October 22, 2012. I think “early” voting is more and more convenient and therefore more and more popular. What should we do to encourage more US CITIZENS to VOTE?
