If anyone has the right to say "I told you so," it's Tom Link. He did.

 Brutal attack kept under wraps

On Aug. 5, just past 9 p.m., a 50-year-old Madison man we'll call "Bob" was walking to work. Near Milwaukee Street and East Washington Avenue, he passed a group of teenagers. "One said hello," recalls Bob. "I said hello back." Then one of the younger teens punched him in the face. >More
 The good ol' boys at CUNA Inc.

Mike Miller was once described by his boss as a "rising star" at CUNA Inc., "destined to run it all." That was before Miller complained about his Madison-based supervisor, John Franklin, for making racist, sexist and homophobic remarks. >More
