Never mind about the query in my last. I now understand Peter Kunisch's bio: he subs at 15. Does the same company own channels 15 and 57? Does the same company own everything?
The news is on

Bravo to our own Jason, who turned in a fine performance as culture maven last night on WB57's "Nine O'Clock News." Ereck and I have a crush on "Nine O'Clock News" host Peter Kunisch and are thinking of writing him a mash note. I gather the bio of him I linked to on NBC15's web site is out of date? Surely he's no longer with 15?

Headline spotted today on

Prosecutors argue for Limbaugh records

Dialog that entered my mind when I read it:

"Dibs on Peaches & Herb!"

"You bastard!"

I'm feeling punchy today; not sure why.

At last the University of Wisconsin political science department has deleted my email account, and I must admit I'm a little relieved. I haven't been affiliated with the department since (let me see) January 2001, but the account continued to work, and I never had the heart to tell anyone. So I continued to check the account regularly, and learned more than I could use about job talks, grad student meetings and--increasingly--penis enlargement. But as I also learned from the grad student list, the department has implemented a new email system, and during the changeover someone must have noticed: this motherfucker isn't here anymore. So I bid you farewell, sweet political science department. May your next two-tailed hypothesis be your most satisfying.

A recent conservative attack ad blasts Kerry for being a rich elitist.

So what is Bush? A proletarian? Do they really think we're that stupid?
