Republicans voted in December to limit early voting to no more than two weeks before an election. The move came after a difficult midterm election in November in which the overwhelmingly Democratic cities of Madison and Milwaukee held early voting for six ...

Empirical SCOTUS: Which Supreme Court cases are generating the most interest?

This Supreme Court term, like the past several before it, has been slow out of the gates. It also marks another term with a new justice – this time Justice Brett Kavanaugh. The justices often find consensus both early on in a term and after a largescale change, defining or redefining their jurisprudential boundaries only later. The justices have released five decisions in argued cases so far, all of them free even from concurrences. This is a new high count for unanimous decisions without a conc...

Headline accuses "others" of using a term that doesn't appear in the article — "urban-centric."

It's a little too early in the morning to feel like giving up, but journalism is so bad these days, I feel like quitting reading it altogether. I'm reading the Wisconsin State Journal: "Tony Evers' Cabinet picks signal pragmatism, diversity to some; others call them too urban-centric."Urban-centric? Who said that? No one I guess.This is the closest I can come to finding material in the article that supports the use of that term:GOP legislative leaders have criticized Evers’ slate for being prima...

The Lee Valley VeloPark played host to the first two of Kenny’s four Olympic gold medals to date – and the capital boards certainly delivered for her once again.

Abandoned malls from a Reddit sub

One of the less-ballyhooed Christmas traditions was the daylong search for a parking spot at the local mall. Shoppers cruised parking lots like it was a cold-weather Mad Max, scouring the landscape in virtual spiked shoulder pads doing whatever had to be done to survive the shopping apocalypse. Now, shopping malls are a different kind of apocalyptic landscape, where barren lots lead to eerie concourses full of empty storefronts and long-drawn shutters. Even during the holiday rush, strangely ...
