The Election's Over...Now What? Get active! Climate Change? Peace activities? Just do it!

Well, I started to write a blog about Tuesday about 4 times this week... None of them could capture the overwhelming sadness and disappointment adn what now feeling I was having...

So instead, I thought to myself I know I'll do what I always do! Pick my self up, brush myself off and start all over again (wasn't that a country song???)

A day not to be proud of Tuesday, politics hit a new low in Wisconsin as Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce bought themselves a seat on the Wisconsin State Supreme Court, This proves more than ever why groups such as ours are needed across the state. In the meantime, Jim Rowen provides a survey of liberal opinion on the race that you will not see in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

And for your reading pleasure, one last blast at Charlie Sykes for his shameless role in this election. http://grassrootsnorthshore.org/mailer/redir.php?id=460&st_id=328

Maybe he did, or maybe he didn't, but the president of TDS Telecom has stepped down from the board of WMC. He claims the mudfest the WMC created in this week's election had nothing to do with it. But -- the timing is a little suspect. Steve Jaegler of the Small Business Times explains. We urge you to read the comments. http://grassrootsnorthshore.org/mailer/redir.php?id=461&st_id=328
