Re: Here we go again !

There is no money involved except for those who may have to sand an emblem off a gym floor and most schools have been preparing for years to shed themselves of the offending images and names.

Can you substantiate this statement with any facts by any chance?

Re: Helping the Anderson Family

I was wondering how there could be no insurance on the home. If there is any sort of mortgage on it it is generally required by the lender. And even if it is fully paid for, then it is a matter of personal responsibility.

Re: Tiffany understands

"The last thing we need is more of the same in Madison" the first letter says. Then why would anyone vote for Tiffany? He offers that very same extreme fringe of the Republican party that refused to even come to work during the last legislative session.

Re: FACT: They killed 8,000

In the U.S. over 500,000 die of smoking related diseases each year, 46,000 from vehicle crashes, 28,000 from gunshot, and an average of one per year from Cougar attack. Who gets the bad rap? The Cougar.

Re: ethanol & non ethanol gasoline

I agree, ethanol from corn is the worst method of producing ethanol, but the lobbyists have a lot of clout. I don't think it ever was much touted as a "green" product. It produces less CO2 but produces more of other pollutants so it is not seen as an improvement. If we reestablished relati...

The amount charged doesn't seem out of line. The UWMC and other institutions charge a similar room use rate. If you just want a class room to use there the rate is $10/hour for non-profits.

How would mutilating the catalytic converter help mileage? As I understand it just super heats exhaust that has already been exhausted from the engine so to change its chemical composition to a less harmless nature.
