Among the items in Bill Lueders' "On the Town" column: State Rep. David Clarenbach says he will "almost certainly" challenge Scott Klug for the 2nd Congressional District seat in 1992. "I'm planning on it," says Clarenbach, one month after Klug unseats Democrat Robert Kastenmeier. Lueders also writes that "Madison's number-one pro-smoking fanatic," Carol Thompson, has distributed a manifesto entitled "Generation of Vermin," which concludes: "Anti-smokers are satans. Anybody who kills one is a public hero. Anybody who slaughters them wholesale is a messiah." And the column closes with an item on the sorry state of English usage, including a sign on the door at McDonald's on the Square ("Closed do to weather"). Clarenbach does run for Congress but falls in the Democratic primary to Ada Deer, who loses to Klug. Thompson continues to advocate smokers' rights and people continue to abuse English. Lueders is still news editor of Isthmus; his new book, Watchdog: 25 Years of Muckraking and Rabblerousing, provides a retrospective of his work.
