Well, it probably is terrible in the sense that as with most of the Republican moves against voter fraud, it is a solution searching for a problem. At the moment it is far from clear what will actually happen as the result of a ruling in an Ozaukee County court last week.

Senator Jeff Smith

While it’s not officially here yet, the winter season has come to western Wisconsin. Snow has fallen and temperatures have dropped close to zero. During these winter months, my family’s two dogs enjoy exploring the outdoors.
