SCENES

The Week on Forum: Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett vs. Mark Sanford, Jessica McBride

Until sidetracked by a pair of celebrity passings, Forons dove into politics this week, discussing affairs and hypocrisy at all levels of government. From intra-politico-breeding and South Carolina's escapee governor to Iranian unrest and a global economy in the tank, the chatter only proves that Obama, love him or hate him, has a doozy on his hands. >More
 Airstreamers bring their Wally Club confab to Madison (audio slideshow)

Hundreds of Airstream trailer fanatics are cruising into Madison this week, parking their shiny, tin mammoth-mobiles and joining in the the 2009 Wally Byam Caravan Club International Rally festivities. It's the opening day of the 52nd annual convention, which means it might be smart to steer clear of the Alliant Energy Center for a few days. Unless you're into the whole vintage trailer thing, that is. And Canadians. >More
 Airstream enthusiasts gather in Madison for international rally

Approaching the Alliant Energy Center on John Nolen Drive, the glare off hundreds of silver Twinkies is blinding. It's a growing village of vintage Airstream trailers and motor homes in town for the 2009 Wally Byam Caravan Club International Rally. >More
 The Week on Forum: Iran, the Crew, cash vs. plastic, and Yahara Bay Limoncello

Forons stayed local this week, calling out many pressing, and not so pressing, issues around town. Warbling about everything from sports to crime to paying your bill at the Dane, at least they now know they can find solace in an icy Limoncello or a trip to Cudahay. >More
 The Week on Forum: Guilty cinematic pleasures, BTWW, the Parka Bandit, and sandwiches

Political news reigned supreme this week, with forons discussing every level of politics, from Obama's first 100 days to the Wisconsin state budget. Thank god for a sprinkling of celebrity banter. Oh wait... it's about David Carradine. >More
 The Week on Forum: Downtown buskers, online reds, Timecrimes, and open carry

Forons were all about their city this week, chatting about everything from Madison gun carry laws to Overture Center billings. Some of us were angry, while others found humor in Salisbury steak warfare and rogue religious figures. >More
 Summer's here! Enjoy your student-free downtown, Madison!

With thousands of students back home working at the municipal pool or playing video games or whatever they do, downtown Madison is a horse of a different color. >More
 The Week on Forum: Sonia Sotomayor, students, brats and bikes, and Jon + Kate

Forons focused on both local and national goings-on this week. From Brat Fest to Bicycle Benefits to bench nominations, there was no stone unturned and no topic unscathed. >More
 The Week on Forum: Road construction, bird songs, and a letter to Dick Cheney

Forons were jaded as ever this week, cuttin' down everything from Nancy Pelosi to a new east side café. Despite the cutting cynicism, though, a few were able to find the simple pleasures of hotel soap and super-size spuds. >More
 The Week on Forum: Grocery triggers, state worker furloughs, and historic buildings

After last week's throwback edition, Forons have redirected their attention the present, discussing everything from recent political movements to cool tech gadgets. Of course, some flew under the radar, reminding us all of the Dr. Spocks and Mrs. Pac Men of yore. >More
