Darryl Enriquez at Waukesha FYI informs us on the testy public comments sessions at recent Waukesha common council meetings.

Fairly Conservative‘s Cindy Kilkenny wonders at Elmbrook Schools superintendent Matt Gibson’s thought processes.

Alexander at Hobo Springs posts about the anger at the Waukesha McCain/Palin rally that’s gained so much attention and notes that if we’re angry, it’s about the issues, not the personal stuff.

Curt Otto blogs at Maple and Main about a new store coming to downtown Waukesha.

Kyle Prast takes a break from political stuff at Practically Speaking to give us a glimpse of an outing to the Anaba Tea Room.

James Wigderson catches us up on the 97th Wisconsin Assembly district race at Wigderson Library & Pub.

Take this opportunity to check out Homemaker’s Guide to the Galaxy where MommaBlogger has a recipe for S’mores. The pictures will make your mouth water.

And we can’t forget the turmoil in the financial markets.

Well, I can predict the stock market won’t fall tomorrow. [UPDATE: Never try to read a financial post late at night.] The Asian Badger in this general post on the mess notes that tomorrow is Columbus Day, a federal holiday.

A couple of miscellaneous items.

Dan at Skeptics Anonymous reflects on a 2006 trip to Philadelphia to see the Brewers play.

Huckleberry Dumbell at The Spring City Chronicle just doesn’t give fine news summaries and nice poems, but also great pictures he has been acanning.
