I have handed my balls to Isthmus several times.
They have dropped those balsl so many times I don't think they even know how to play.
But after years of turning a blind eye and a deaf ear to ALL Foron proposals, foron ideas, and potentially groundbreaking altpress-winning foron guest writers, it's apallingly disengenuous to suddenly pretend you were inspired with the brilliant idea of sucking ideas out of Forons in hopes that you can wham bam steal them man, and no thank you.
These are the same exact ideas we have been offering you for years now!!!

Isthmus used to be community champion, the authority inquisitor, the renegade press corp, the free thinking iconoclast and the hippie/punk/radical/alternative voice .
You now sound like muzak.

God. What fucking AUDACITY to finally stick your heads further up OUR collective ass for food we offered you years ago.
This "new" Isthmus sucks.
And it sucks WRONG.

I'd love to see a monthly crime map for things like break-ins, sexual assaults, car thefts, murders, robberies, assaults, muggings, et cetera. Pick a different-colored dot for each kind of crime and plot them on a map of Madison.

I got the above from a local media site and immediately bookmarked it.

This is the newer Madison Police site.

Why don't you do a story on how and why influential Madison property owners snag these questionable assessments.


I'm perplexed at the lack of interest in this on here. You people love to bash the haves. Talk about low hanging fruit. What if it was Mohs? Who by the way has his digs assessed as a 3-unit? (I was curious) What's up with that? Tax advantages? It doesn't look like a multi-unit.

A feature on Alder Schumacher would be good--he hardly gets any press. . . . oh, wait. nevermind.
