The Kinzelman Effect

When they hear 'Racine,'
More than kringle comes to mind
In clean beach circles

Grant writer

Murder, crime and shootings
Becker's cure for Racine is
A new grant writer.....

Fast track to nowhere

With gas at four bucks
Train sounds better and better.
Too bad there ain't one.

We shall never ... learn?

Memorial Day:
Flags and parades, and each year
More deaths to regret.

And, from a reader:

Memorial Day
Honoring your sacrifice
Freedom isn't free

Unintended consequences

Where did that come from?
Suddenly I gained five pounds!
Oh yeah, pancake day.
--Monte Osterman

First things first...

Oil execs profit
Before alternatives fuel
Our energy needs.

Imagine what he could do for an encore

Whatever your view
Of Paul Ryan, this is clear:
He doesn't think small.

Downtown puts on a happy face!

Sixth Street all-but done,
Arty spheres come out to play.
Downtown rejoicing!

The little train that ...

The train will be late,
But KRM supporters
Are sure it's coming.

And an opposing viewpoint:

Listen John Lehman
We don't want your choo choo train
What an idiot

Thanks, Rotarians!

Trial balloon

VP Paul Ryan.
It has a nice ring. But will
Obama choose him?

The President's sacrifice

Bush stopped playing golf
out of respect for war deaths?
Why not stop the war?


Monday, May 12, 2008

We'll pay those bills tomorrow!

Budget compromise:
Refinance, delay school aid
...State House foreclosure!


Mother's Day was yesterday!

The day after, Mom:
What's for breakfast? Where's my lunch?
Pick me up! See ya!

Mother's Day sentiment

Luckily, mothers
don't rely on cheesy cards
to know we love them.

The gas tax vacation express

Gas tax vacation,

Oh, joy! With that 18 cents
I'll go ... um, nowhere.


Laughs from oil execs
Push gas prices up before
Bush leaves the White House

Tuesday, May 6, 2008


In the name of peace
we've lost our humanity.
What have we become?



A likely scenario

When Bush, Ryan speak
About torture, are they like
Three little monkeys?

Book 'em, Danno!

A little advice
For Racine's seven new cops:
Be careful out there.


Saturday, May 3, 2008

Life doesn't get much better

Pancake Day. Art fair.
Paddling down the Root River.
Racine at its best.


Let's be careful out there...

Seven more recruits
Join city's war against crime.
Fingers in the dike?

Unhappy anniversary

Mission Accomplished
The president said. Since then
Four thousand more died.


Wartime accommodations

Disgusting barracks
Surprised our Army's top brass.
What else don't they know?
