A few random thoughts today:
I see sportsmen ignored my plea to forego a wolf hunting season and voted in a wide majority to request the ability to shoot an animal that just made it back from the brink of extinction. Hopefully, the natural resources board will sit on that request for a couple of decades to make sure the wolf population can handle human intervention.
I'm disappointed the Oshkosh Common Council is pursing a questionable policy toward voting on issues raised during the "Councilmember Statements" portion of their agenda. They have decided to place the nebulous phrase "and other potential action items" in with the statement notice. Is there anything brought up by Councillors that can't wait two more weeks to be properly noticed on an agenda for the next meeting? I'll grant you, no major decision are made during Councilmember Statements--but that doesn't guarantee something may not be snuck through in the future.
Why did Al Gore invent the internet? So I can listen to the home team broadcast of the Boston Bruins-Montreal Canadiens playoff series on my computer--since the Versus network has seen no need to put those games on television here in the US.
Several bloggers have noted a very negative tone in my recent "Two Cents". One thought it may have been caused by the weather--and I think he or she might be right. It's amazing how great I felt after finally getting out yesterday afternoon to hit some golf balls on the driving range. I'll feel even better after my first round of the year. George Graphos had better be right about those sixties over the weekend.
