On Sunday, March 6th, I attended the 9th annual WMSE Chili Contest with my wife and son. It was a huge success. There were tons of people. I would say "standing-room only" but there was barely room to stand. The chili was excellent. There were so many chili vendors it would have been virtually impossible to sample them all. I walked around and just picked some more or less at random. I can't say there were any I didn't like. One of the vendor's was Cudahy's own City Lounge: http://www.cityloungesmokefree.com/

It is now crystal clear that Scott Walker is not as interested in balancing the budget as he is in eroding the rights of Wisconsin's hard-working middle class. As I have said earlier, asking public-sector employees to shoulder a greater portion of their pension and health care costs is a reasonable request. Taking away their right to collective bargaining is not.
All employees should have a right to a voice in the workplace. Scott Walker is attempting to turn teachers and other public-sector employees into powerless laborers. Public sector employees are not the enemy!
