Madison Bishop Robert Morlino offers little clarity in a statement on Wisconsin's labor unrest

In a column called "Clarifying the Fairness Issue," Madison bishop Robert Morlino fails to offer clarity on the controversy surrounding Gov. Scott Walker's budget bill. Morlino's essay, published in the Diocese of Madison's Catholic Herald, lacks the directness of Milwaukee Archbishop Jerome E. Listecki's Feb. 16 statement addressed to the Wisconsin legislature's Joint Finance Committee. >More
 Protesters sign the guest book in Wisconsin Capitol

At the state Capitol information desk, there's a guest book -- you know, the kind you see at weddings and funerals. Curious, I flipped back through the pages. Up through Feb. 13, it's about what you'd expect from awestruck visitors. >More

 Wisconsin Capitol protester files: Madison Metro bus drivers

The group of five Madison Metro drivers were walking around the outside of the state Capitol in Madison during the noon protest today, Thursday, Feb. 24.

Ever since Gov. Scott Walker's controversial budget bill inspired an uprising of Wisconsin unions and public employees, many people have wondered, "Who is this man?" Well, now we have a slightly better idea, courtesy of a prank call from a journalist impersonating Walker ally David Koch. The recording allows us a glimpse of Walker in an unguarded moment, speaking candidly. >More
 MPD Chief Noble Wray, Madison Mayor Dave Cieslewicz respond to Walker's comments on planting 'troublemakers' in demonstrations

First it was calling out the National Guard. Now it's using agent provocateurs. For the second time in as many weeks, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker roused bad old memories of political demonstrations past and sparked fears about new government abuses of First Amendment rights when he admitted in a phone call yesterday that he had thought about instigating trouble among the demonstrators at the Capitol. >More
 Wisconsin Wave, union supporters picket WMC meeting at Monona Terrace

A large protest Wednesday afternoon at the Capitol broadened its anger beyond Gov. Scott Walker to corporate interests that have supported him. The protest -- spearheaded by Wisconsin Wave and Defend Wisconsin -- used the "Business Day in Madison 2011" conference held by Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce at Monona Terrace as a chance to highlight the interests backing Walker. Both Walker and US Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Janesville) were scheduled to speak at the conference. >More
