Daddy, at the rate dust builds up at my house I can easily believe that much sediment could pile up in 2000 years. The 2 blocks haven't changed, but they do not always load with the page.

Miss M, I barely made to work this morning after trudging my way through drifts almost as big as the Philly ones.

Update your dictionaries. Affordable is now $50,000/yr. At least according to the CBO.

NK, the best flight was one where we stuck a big engine in a small rocket-- turns out my brother glued the nose cone on an after an amazing flight was surprised no parachute deployed. Took a shovel to retrieve that one from the impact crater in the field.

Walker signals a budget cut, the first of many. UW had asked for an increase in funding of $95 million over the next two years — money that it argued was needed given that Walker was calling for another two-year tuition freeze. Walker is going forward with the tuition freeze, but is calling for the $300 million cut in exchange for something university leaders have wanted for years: more independence. .

Daddy, this is not digging through snow in NYC, but a cool find anyway.

From our friend in Chicago, the first internaltional crude oil bond default is... Argentina. the province would cut royalties paid by producers by as much as 50 percent for new production so the projects remain economically viable.

NK, our snow has started. Won't be enough to bother with shoveling anything.

NK, we are supposed to get just enough to make the drive home interesting. Not forecast to start for another hour or so.

IBM disagrees with Forbes on level of restructuring. several thousand, not a hundred thousand, to be laid off. Note, I think the Forbes sources are in Rochester, MN which has seen several rounds of layoffs as IBM consolidated its server lines. Servers are not selling right now. Local impacts magnified by the disgruntled... business as usual in figuring out IBM.

NK, while there was a chance Walker would not be around (3 elections in 4 years), private money stayed on the sidelines. This year should be interesting. For example I will increase staff here 10% starting next week (real money tech jobs).

Ben, recycling SEIU talking points from a losing campaign. The correct comparison is Illinois where Quinn continued on the path of the left, while in WI Walker changed from the Doyle lockstep with Illinois. Most important, my taxes are down, how are yours?

MissM, Forbes has a tech blog that reports rumors from the dissatisfied at various tech companies. They were on the IBM thing starting a week ago. (That blog has been critical of IBM management based on input from former IBMers for quite a while, a lot of sour grapes). As the tech world moves to more cloud, hardware becomes commodity. IBM will not be alone in making big adjustments. The global economy hitting OPM famine just makes the adjustments larger.

Here is an example of the City and Ed Union teaming up to stop charter schools that get vouchers. “This second obstacle was hilariously tragic,” Tyson recalled with a rueful laugh. “The mayor’s assistant gave me a piece of paper with a second PILOT on it. They wanted us to pay an additional $1.3 million to cover what they said the city would lose by students using vouchers to go to our school,” he said. Streetcars and bad schools are good for Milwaukee just like Milwaukee dumping billions of gallons of untreated sewage into Lake Michigan is good for the environment. This is Agenda 21 in action, not the Onion.

NK, Obama figured out tax exempt savings will keep the OPM flowing for 2 more years (maybe). Sucks for him that Congress won't go there. CH, Milwaukee politics has turned into the Onion-- perhaps the reason the Onion left WI for NYC.

more coffee, better html for links.

I hope all you soon to be snowed in folks have plenty of popcorn. social justice warriors turn against Milwaukee streetcar project. It took a while, but enough pointing to the OPM shift from minorities to cronies got their attention.

I assumed CH was referring to NPR, although Wiki was equally active in their recent begathon.

Sheriff Clarke is not happy with Al Sharpton. (there is an autoplay news thing. Scroll down for Clarke).

A report on the casino rejection. Note Walker bases his decision on protecting taxpayers due to a sweetheart deal his predecessor (Doyle, D-Chicago JV) set up. Other dimensions: the Potawatomi keeping a monopoly vs the Menominee (those altruistic native americans at each others' throats); the Chamber of Cronies and Milwaukee vs development anywhere outside of Milwaukee (the existing Potawatomi casino is in Milwaukee), Racine and Kenosha pols who want to take credit for something also factor in.

The tweet world claims Walker just rejected the Kenosha casino. No idea if true, or what reasons the gov cites for doing that. A political mess however you view it.

Rome had bread and circuses. We get pot and deflated pigskins.
