Good show!

by thoughtfulconservative

Red light and speeding enforcement zones set this week.

Madison police will be on the lookout for speeders and red-light runners this week on three stretches of city streets.

And then they proceed to name the stretches they will be patrolling. So I guess they want the speeders to know where they need to obey the speed limit.

Waukesha Carnival 9-15-2008

by thoughtfulconservative

Welcome to this week’s carnival highlighting post from or about Waukesha that I found interesting.

In news around the county, Mr. Gravelle at The Daily Scoff tells us the key to a successful library.

Scott Berg at 359 Degrees invites input into Brookfield city’s 2035 Comprehensive Plan.

Bryon Houlgrave has photos from the New Berlin firefighters’ remembrance services on 9/11.

Fox Head took a look at a couple of local items, traffic lights at Waukesha West, and obtaining a building permit and taxes.

Darryl Enriquez at Waukesha FYI has a pic documenting the tree cutting next to John’s Root Beer on Accordion Arcadian Avenue.

James noted an e-mail from the Journal Sentinel’s Steven Walters that belies the notion of journalistic integrity or neutrality.

State-wide, Dad29 uses Patrick McIlheran’s column as a jumping off point to make more points of his own on Van Hollen’s suit against the GAB.

silent e takes apart a recent Journal Sentinel op/ed on Van Hollen.

On the subject of national politics, things continued hot and heavy at Fairly Conservative with Cindy’s continuation post on Anne Kilkenny’s e-mail.

Kyle Prast confesses the same ignorance of the Bush Doctrine that I had. I guess we’re not qualified to be vice-president.

Dave at Yorick’s Persiflage recounts an encounter with an Obama backer going door-to-door.

In general topics, The Asian Badger links to a post on a pilot landing on the fringes of Hurricane Hanna.

The Family Guy gives us a post on The New Face of Feminism.

The best of Waukesha blogs, edition 10

by thoughtfulconservative

OK, it’s been two weeks and even this one is a day late. My apologies. Taking a class on Mondays, attending a Creation seminar on Thursdays, and teaching a class daily has taken its toll this past month.

But enough about me, or at least my personal busyness. Let’s get to what I found interesting in the blogs around the county last month.

First of all, Dad29 favors waterboarding–of the Wisconsin Legislature for the way someone can enter spending into the state budget and remain anonymous. He might have some on both sides who may agree with him.

The Sheboygan affair was a hot topic this past week, with The Asian Badger, Dad29, Five Points Blog, Peterepublic, silent e, Jessica McBride, and Mr. Wigderson (if I missed anyone sorry) hitting it.

OK, time for some humor. We don’t want it to get too serious here. Tim Rock’s mom says this was the best joke of Ireland in 2006. It made this conservative Christian chuckle so it must be. Tim also caught my eye with Edmund Burke – 18th Century Blogger Fan.

Spring City Chronicle provided a public service by posting 133 Addresses To Avoid While Trick or Treating In Waukesha. Yep, that’s how many sex offenders are in Waukesha. Some addresses have more than one.

Pete remembers Alan Kulwicki who won a tight race for NASCAR champion 15 years ago.

Public Trough, one of the BrookfieldNOW blogs discusses the Big Ten Network and its relationship to the University of Wisconsin.

James Wigderson previews a new Living the High Life commercial from Miller/Coors.

I posted on this from Scott Feldstein earlier with the moral of “…just because your computer is secure, it doesn’t mean you can ignore security issues altogether.” Amen.

Sancho at Hobo Springs wonders what happened to Illusory Tenant, the liberal blogger who used a term injudiciously and wound up having to apologize. Sure enough his blog is now open by invitation only. Well Imus is back on the air and perhaps IT will return eventually.

Other noted posts:

Public Trough – Do Their Job? Are You Kidding?

Dad29 – WI Greenhouse Gas Reduction to 1990 Levels!, “Gun Show Loophole”? Not Likely and Why the Electoral College?

Spring City Chronicle – Up and Down Broadway Dispatches

James Wigderson –Then why keep it legal?

That’s it for this week. Again,if you’ve read something by Waukesha bloggers or about Waukesha you’d like to include, here send me an email or post it in the comments.
