Gooooood morning, Madison! Getting a little bit warmer today, high of 67, low of 42. Mother Nature has it all wrong, says the Cap Times. Why is she giving us a beautiful work week and a crummy weekend? Here's some fish fry from Eddie's Alehouse. Is that a sufficient brunch for 4/20?

C'mon, Badger Herald. Nobody is perfect but I know the hours you guys put into copy editing.

For the record, it is the Chicano student association.

Looks like the City Council will pass a resolution endorsing "a downtown high speed rail station," which includes the Kohl Center, Monona Terrace and the Yahara Station.

During the meeting between UW student government reps and the Downtown Coordinating Committee, it looked like Yahara Station is the closest thing to downtown that is viable.

Pro-Life Wisconsin challenges UW training medical students at Planned Parenthood.

There's been almost no coverage of this: State Senate set to pass shield law for journalists and their confidential sources.

Let's go, UW skating. For 2nd year of existence, 6th place ain't bad.
