Time to read your brunch links before they get cold. It's getting way up there today; high of 76 and sunny! Unfortunately I can't find the picture I took of the first-ever grits I ate on my trip down South (My Cousin Vinny-style). The waitress said "they're the best grits you'll ever have." This fried steak, fried eggplant and rice n' beans I had in Oxford, MS will have to do.

Clean Energy Jobs substitute amendment eliminates Californiaesque fuel standards but keeps much of the bill in tact. Dems look like they're going ahead with it.
Hell yeah: Ron Kind threatened to vote against the health care bill and won higher Medicare payments for Wisconsin doctors and hospitals
No Brenda! When you have Tivo you're supposed to skip all the boring stuff (e.g. the whole meeting).
It's admirable that the Cap Times advocates the election of positions which voters will never fill with progressive candidates.
You think the Legislature would adjourn without a resolution supporting Harley? That's the one piece of legislation you can count on.
Again, more great amenities for UW right as I leave. What senseless luxuries did my inflated tuition bill ever get me?
Ah yes, the "grassroots" Nat Up campaign apparently costed $30,000 of Rec Sports money. Are the volunteers paid though? Does anybody know?
Tom Barrett trailing GOP foes in fundraising. Makes sense he's not doing TV and radio ads yet. However, he's not spending any money either.
Senate passes ban on texting, but the fine will only be $20.
There really wasn't a better headline than this: "Wisconsin close to not being only state without payday loan regulations."
