More opinions than you want to hear about.


Senator/Governor Nelson was one of Wisconsin's best public servants.  He committed to many of what I believe were the better side of many issues, and he did so without regard for how they would affect his career.  That is a quality lacking in many of today's politicians.

Please don't take this as disagreeing with Nelson, but out of respect for residents of other planets, I'm goin' with Happy Holidays.
