Guest posts

14 May

Today I received an email from somebody who recently broke his jaw and wanted to write some guest posts for this blog. I thought it was a great idea, so you’ll probably see some of his posts on the blog in the near future.

If you’ve broken your jaw and have something to share but prefer not to start your own blog, I hope you’ll consider guest blogging here. I’ll review posts before they go up, but only to make sure they’re reasonably on topic and uncontroversial. If that’s not okay with you, you should start your own blog. If you’re interested, send me an email, and we can discuss details of how it will work.


One Response to “Guest posts”

    In her most recent state-funded communique, Biddy says, “We’re gaining momentum” on the NBP. What a crock. She’s only lost momentum. She speaks of the Wisconsin State Journal endorsement, as if it’s something new. Hah. The Wisconsin State Journal is the Wall Street Journal of Madison; right wing, purely ideological rag that it is, they’ve been behind the public authority from the beginning. Their endorsement rings hollow in the silence of the Wisconsin paper of record, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

    Then she tries trotting out the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce, the largely suburban and exurban (read: conservative) cousin to the more serious and more-influential Downtown Rotary Club. Why doesn’t she mention the resolution of support from the School of Pharmacy’s Board of Visitors? Perhaps because of the embarrassing heinousness that is the pharmaceutical industry? She trumpets the “success” of the privatized Wisconsin Institute for Discovery–whose slick building and even slicker lobbyists–brings in millions from private industry, yet whose mission has almost nothing to do with the citizens of Wisconsin.

    In the face of Biddy’s public relations onslaught, I take comfort in the day, not long away, when the legislature finally takes Biddy to task for wasting millions of state dollars on the no-holds barred PR campaign that is the NBP. Biddy, your days are numbered. The NBP is dead in the water. Your desperation only secures that fact.
