Re: Proposed work place smoking ban in Rhinelander

I had a very wise professor that I respect very much (and apparently others did too since he was on the board of a variety of companies) who made the argument that any law passed affecting business is simply due to businesses failing to do the right thing themselves. At the time I questioned this bu...

Re: Proposed work place smoking ban in Rhinelander

I love being able to go out to the bars with friends in Appleton and not stink when we come home (they passed a full workplace ban that the bars are trying to overturn). Many of the bars and restaurants are trying to reverse some of it now claiming that their business is down. The sad thing is I kno...

Re: animal cruelty case

Bond only needs to be set based on flight risk and risk they'll do it again while they are out on bond. I seriously doubt this woman will be acquiring any more critters before her court date and if she doesn't have anywhere to run then a low bond makes sense. I suspect the punishment will be much wo...

Former Bill of Rights

Since our government is now listening to phone calls without a warrant I figured I'd pass on this little tidbit.

Marty, I've yet to see anything anywhere that says the universe didn't always exist... There are Big Bang theories, etc. but even those believe the universe exploded from very dense matter (something like one heck of a black hole).

Re: Evading the gas prices

A catalytic converter and muffler add resistance to the exhaust. It's the same reason an after-market exhaust that is larger will improve performance. The easier it is for exhaust to get out the more power the engine can create (to a point).

However, it is still a TERRIBLE idea!
