Annus horribilis redux

Good riddance, '08!
On our list of lousy years
You rank really high

I'm from the government...

Oh, the irony!
Only new jobs we've heard of
Process jobless claims

A real miracle

Santa and Rudolph:
Their business model succeeds
Without a bailout!

Snow day tradeoff

That wasn't so bad.
Fluffy snow everywhere, sure,
But no place to go

Racine Pride

Tough call for Council:
Build a wall around Racine
Or do the right thing

They live in our hearts

cold cemetery
broken hearts join to honor
candles warm our hearts

universal pain
brings us together briefly
remembering them

Hey, big spender!

Another bailout,
Another Ryan yes vote.
What's become of him?

The government we deserve?

Stunning corruption!
Blagojevich sets the bar
High for successors

It doesn't get much better

Forty thousand books!
Literacy is gift-wrapped
For Racine school kids

Hell hath no fury

Old legal adage
Proved again at City Hall:
Anyone can sue.
