This changes (nothing) everything!
The Wisconsin Supreme Court's conservative majority issued a ruling this week laying out how they'll handle the political map-drawing process in the state: basically change things from the existing, GOP-slanted maps as little as possible. And how better to make sense of the news? Soft rock piano!

A sticky issue
A new bipartisan bill sparked fresh discussion about marijuana policy in Wisconsin this week. It would standardize penalties for marijuana possession across the state, and while it would mellow out restrictions in many areas, some communities that have lax rules aren't feeling the vibe. Plus, can it actually pass, or will it go up in smoke as so many week bills before it?

But we are going to make it through this year if it kills us!

It came from the LAB
Deep in the bowels of the Capitol square, shrouded in mystery, you’ll find the LAB. What goes on there, nobody’s quite sure. But for months, day and night, something has been growing, bit by bit, taking on a life of its own. And now it’s in the light of day — a massive, incomprehensible entity that’s already started to spawn!! It has long, nonpartisan tentacles wrapped around the core parts of state government. It is … the Legislative Audit Bureau 2020 elections administration report !!!!!!!!
