    But it was expected. They are mesmerized, as many in this part of Wisconsin, by Paul Ryan's blue eyes ... not realizing that they are the window into a man with no soul.

    The good news is that most people here laugh at the endorsements because they are so predictable and wrong headed.

      and probably country wide, is newspaper subscriptions are in the toilet.  Hardly anyone subscribes anymore.  

      Who are they reaching, really?

        I only get the paper because it is the state's best coverage of UW sports ... not just the money sports but women's sports and cross country and rowing and the like.

        It is the newspaper of record for the state so all the state notices have to be put in it. For that reason, it has a lot of out-state subscribers. I suspect that it what the right-lean is all about. It does not resonate with us libruls in Dane County.

        Our progressive paper, The Capitol Times, went online a few years ago and is now a weekly print.

          and it just takes too much time to find all the info I want on the intertubes.  I like having it all there at my fingertips.

                see the Bears win.

                The Packers let the Cardinals get back into the game in the 3rd quarter but then, thank goodness, shut them down.

                Rodgers was great again and how about that running game? Most running yards since 2009 or some such?

                  The defense is improving, but it sure would be nice to see more help for Rodgers on the offense.

                  I was surprised to see Jordy playing and then boom, he re-injured himself.  Good thing there's a bye week.

                  It was huge to have gotten that Bears win in week two as the Bears are really surging.  I hope they run outta steam by mid Dec when we face them again.

                  Jags play again on Thursday, oy.  Folks are beginning to make suggestions that they play most of their games in London next year.  Ouch, that's leaving a mark.
