Ironic that this is happening under Mayor Soglin.

No more ironic than Nixon going to China.

I'm only a little surprised at the party cancelling. Soglin's always been more of a stoner than a drunk, and it's been nothing but a beer blast since before the turn of the century.

What I find more interesting is that I can't view most of the Badger Herald website with Firefox or IE.

It might still be my browser's problem but both of my (up to date) browsers think that site is seriously broken.

Huh.

From Mifflin, to Soglin, to Nixon.

I was having the same problem in Chrome. My guess was the story's getting a big time traffic hit. Seems to be back now.

Public safety. Same as the Capitol emergency rules Walker just approved. Soglin = Walker.

So you think singing and signs are the same thing as being drunk and disorderly?

C'mon, Henry, don't you recognize obvious Meade trollery when you see it?

Same here, if by "interesting" you mean "annoying as fuck." BH stories tend to work slightly better if you do the "m." trick at the front of the URL.

I never really cared for Mifflin, so in that respect, not really sad to see it go. Also, as has been noted rather tiresomely, it's obviously not the social protest movement it was once was, so not like we're losing anything there either.

At the same time, what makes MPD and Soglin think they aren't trading up to an even bigger clusterfuck?
