2/12/15 How an art major in Madison ended up happy here

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

About a year and a half ago, I received a survey request from the UW-Madison Art Department and found myself writing a lot about things from 15 years prior. I pasted my response as a draft in this here blog intending to expand on it at some point; since I appear to be on a […]

5/7/10 Someone else’s Packers adventure in Madison, c. 1997

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

I’ve had this page open in a tab for a couple of weeks now and want to get rid of it, so I’m blogging it for posterity (and because it’s amusing, at least to me). In 1997, the Packers played a preseason game at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison, Wisconsin. (I lived there at the […]

6/19/06 "Lane Courtesy"—what a concept

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

10/22/03 the Buffoon Governor Trifecta (TM)

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

It occurred to me, after the recall election, that very few people have probably experienced the Buffoon Governor Trifecta(TM) that I have. 1986-1999: Tommy Thompson, Wisconsin. 1999-2002: Jesse Ventura, Minnesota. 2003-?: Arnold Schwarzenegger, California. The mind reels.

2/4/02 Cops and Breeders

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

I can’t believe I haven’t mentioned this yet. My absolute favorite show on the radio is This American Life, hosted and produced by Ira Glass since 1995. It is what it says it is—people talking about life in this country—and defies further description, as their website acknowledges: One of the problems with our show from […]
