Madison’s Landmarks Commission is the triumph of progressivism

Dave Cieslewicz may not be right, but he is correct. Once endorsed by Progressive Dane, Mr. C. is beginning to get the big picture: The City of Madison’s Landmarks Commission is an undemocratic, anti-people disgrace. Yes, this bureaucracy is an exemplar of high progressivism.

D.C. fiddles while the Midwest burns

Nero played the fiddle while Rome burned. This phrase has come to epitomize those who occupy themselves with unimportant matters while neglecting priorities during a crisis. It’s an old story with a painfully real message for the present day. Instead of passing a U.S. farm bill, lawmakers in Washington, D.C., are consumed by election-year politicking and posturing. Meanwhile, the worst drought in decades is gripping the throat of the nation’s breadbasket. Right now, D.C. is fiddling while the Midwest burns.

Life goes on for Bobby Hinds, Lifeline founder

Eighty-three-year-old Bobby Hinds has sold his Lifeline, the company he built over the past 40 years, so now it’s time for the indefatigable fitness fanatic to retire, right? Wrong. Hinds has been the driving force behind Lifeline USA, acquired last month by Pivotal 5, not because he founded the business, but because he was in charge of product development. Develop he did, and develop he will do.
