We have interns again, but I'm still trying to figure out if I should incorporate them in chats this summer. As for the questions I answer, I like good, funny, snarky and relevant questions. Or make fun of. So those are the rules. - If Russ wants to explain how he ran Progressives United Inc. and Progressives United PAC, he knows where to find me. I'm here every day, and my phone number (414-224-2135) is readily available. - Presidential campaigns are expensive affairs. From what I understand, there are three campaigns that look to have the money to go the distance. This speculation is fun, but everybody has to lay his cards on the table soon. You will be able to see for yourself which campaigns are built to last. - You realize I'm terrible at making predictions, right. Yet you continue to ask these questions. And I continue to answer them. That's what makes them so fun. When Abele first ran for public office, he named his campaign fund Abele for County Exec, telling his staff he had no interest in running for any other office. Abele wanted two things from the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office: (1) He wanted to name the deputy who would provide security. and (2) He wanted a written agreement promising confidentiality.
The big news in the sports world this morning is this - the Kentucky Wildcats did not finish the college basketball season undefeated. Last night at the Final Four in Indianapolis, Wisconsin beat Kentucky 71-64 in a dramatic, down to the wire showdown between number one seeds in the men's tournament. Kentucky was trying to become the first team since 1976 to finish with a perfect record. NPR's Tom Goldman was at the game. GOLDMAN: Indeed, Wisconsin forward Sam Dekker's rainbow three-point shot broke a tie with less than two minutes left and it gave the Badgers a lead they never relinquished. But to be fair to a game as great as this, that was edge-of-your-seat exciting from the opening tip, Dekker's dagger has to include a little back-story. A few minutes earlier, Kentucky had taken a four-point lead after trailing by eight earlier in the half. Heartened by the swing on the score board, Kentucky head coach John Calipari said to himself, we're going to win this thing. GOLDMAN: Specifically, Wisconsin played the kind of defense that made Kentucky so fearsome throughout its unblemished season. After the Wildcats took that lead, Wisconsin forced three straight shot clock violations - meaning Kentucky's offense wasn't able to get off a shot in its allotted 35 seconds. Then, a little Wisconsin luck. A Badger's basket was allowed, even though the shot clock had expired.
