When:  4:30-7:30 PM

http://www.dot.wisconsin.gov/projects/d1/hsrail/need.htm

We (WISPIRG and others) need people outside the building with signs, handing out literature, greeting people who are attending.  We need people inside expressing support.

Please bring a home-made sign – “Rail YES!!” or something short like that.  Spread the word – forward this to other supporters.  You better believe the Great Train Robbery folks will be there trying to derail this. Let’s show up in force and help get that track nailed down!

Entropy & Engineering

I love Hans Noeldner’s take on our deathmobiling culture. His latest post brings the perspective of a hydraulic engineer to bear on the issue.

Mosiman’s latest news release for his boss, Mayor Pave.

And the Wisconsin State Journal’s rightist editors are hearing footsteps…..

Mayor Pave Spotted at Eastside Tavern

Wednesday, August 18th, 2010

Mayor Pave, long absent from the Eastside, was spotted tonight at the Harmony Bar. His sycophantic entourage was in tow. All noses at his table were brown. There was a wide arc of emptiness between his group of yes-(wo)men and the rest of the bar patronage, as the regulars recoiled at his presence.

Yeah, ick.

There you have it. After years of dumping on the Eastside for its neighborhood activism, Bürgermeister Beton* is Back, lookin’ for votes in the voting-est ward in the city. Yup, the very ward that put him over the top in ’03. And yup, the same ward he screwed over with his fascistic bus service slashes to pay for his Autobahnen to the ‘burbs.

This time, we have choices….and more choices….We beat his type before, we’ll do it again.

*That’s concrete auf Deutsch.
