Monday morning musings

Musings on a Monday morning:

-- Are Jim Doyle and the Dems pandering and misleading the public on the benefits of stem cell research? Dennis York thinks so, but the Playground Supervisor blows his whistle and says while every politician panders, Mark Green cherry-picks his church's positions when it helps him politically.

-- Is it just me, or did anyone else notice that the Journal Sentinel prominently played the prosecution's case against Georgia Thompson on page one, but moved coverage back to the Metro section when writing about the defense case? There's that darned liberal press at work again.

-- On Tuesday, June 13, the MATC District Board will hold a public hearing on its proposed 2006-2007 budget. This is the one with a 5% increase that has the Journal Sentinel and anti-tax zealots so worked up. The hearing is at 4:30 p.m. June 13, in MATC's Stormer Auditorium. If you have an opinion, here's your chance to express it.

-- Marc Eisen of Madison's Isthmus says that if what's happening in southeastern Wisconsin is any sign of what regionalism will bring to the Madison area, people there may want to think carefully and move cautiously. Column.

-- The Wausau Daily Herald reports that two GOP candidates are ramping up their campaigns against Rep. Dave Obey, who has served longer in the House than anyone else in the history of Wisconsin. Good luck, guys.

-- Challenger Scot Ross beat Secretary of State Doug LaFollette in a Dem state convention straw poll. That's one group where the voters actually know both of the candidates. Peg Lautenschlager beat Kathleen Falk, who won last year, evening the series at 1-1. The tie-breaker will come in the September primary.
