Two USHL Teams Opt Out of Season

Two teams in the United States Hockey League, the only Tier I junior league in the United States, and one of the top feeders to college hockey, announced that two of their teams will opt out of participating in the this year’s USHL season. The first is the Madison Capitols, whose decision was based on the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Restrictions in Dane County, home to Madison, limited the Capitols’ ability to host games, and more specifically, play games with fans in the building. That lack...

"Today is a great day for Trump and football fans. And a bad day for the Coronabros."

Wrote Jason King at Outbreak yesterday.Donald Trump’s biggest bet is on masculinity.... Midwest people love football, a sport that rouses feelings of toughness, strength and power.... On Wednesday, the President made sure to remind everyone that two weeks ago he called Big Ten commissioner Kevin Warren to make the case for the conference to reverse its decision to cancel football season....There were also "300 phone calls with Big Ten administrators, players, parents and coaches" by "White House...

If Madison throws away money on this, we taxpayers should revolt.

I'm reading — and fuming over — "Attorney: Madison City Council could investigate, censure council member for vulgarity" (Wisconsin State Journal).At one point during a marathon, sometimes tense, online council meeting that stretched from a Tuesday evening to early Wednesday, a man’s voice was heard uttering an expletive right after a Madison resident’s name was read so she could speak during public comment at about 2:45 a.m. Video of the person who said the profanity did not pop up in the Zoom ...

Cock-eyed Optimist Meets Chicken Little: Jack Balkin on the American Future

For the Symposium on Jack M. Balkin, The Cycles of Constitutional Time (Oxford University Press, 2020).    Given that we are close friends and the co-authors of some twenty articles and a book, Democracy and Dysfunction, it is not surprising that I think very highly, and agree with much of, Jack Balkin’s new book The Cycles of Constitutional Time.  Perhaps it is relevant that I read it in two sittings; it is a real page-turner, written with brio as Jack presents a remarkably comprehensiv...

LAPD homicide detectives investigating dead body found after Sepulveda Basin fire, but no foul play suspected

Police were trying to determine how a dead body ended up in an area of the Sepulveda Basin that was scorched by a wildfire over the weekend. Special investigators with the Los Angeles Police Department’s Robbery Homicide Division were looking into the death along with arson investigators from the city’s fire department, said Officer Drake Madison, a police spokesman.

"In collaboration with the Black Student Union at the school, University of Wisconsin-Madison leaders are discussing plans to remove a 70-ton boulder from campus grounds due to it once being called a racist name nearly a century ago."

"The boulder had traveled to the region over 10,000 years ago, deposited by ancient pre-Cambrian bedrock drift from Canada, according to its plaque. In 1925, workers pulled the rock out of the side of a hill on campus and named it 'Chamberlin Rock' after Thomas Chrowder Chamberlin, a 19th century glaciologist and University of Wisconsin president. The rock was adorned with a plaque commemorating Chamberlin and placed at the university’s Washburn Observatory, where it remains today. While Chamber...

"Now virtually every window on Capitol Square, State Street and part of University Avenue is boarded just as UW-Madison students return to campus."

"Tiffany Kenney, executive director of the Central Business Improvement District, said it could be months before business owners feel comfortable without protection over their windows. 'This is a giant setback for us,' Kenney said. 'They are fearful. There has been damage, there’s been violence and we’re back, way, way back.' Kenney said many are worried about the November elections and may leave their boards in place through the end of the year, which 'could be devastating for our Downtown.' Se...

Draw Distinctions in Response to Police Shootings

If I were younger and living in Kenosha, Wisconsin, I would have been in the streets protesting the police shooting a black man in the back as he got into a car with his three children already seated there.  There may have been extraordinary extenuating circumstances, but based on the video, it would seem that this was as egregious an act as the killing of George Floyd and that the officers involved should be prosecuted and that the city’s police department dramatically reformed. That said, I ...

What I said as I surveyed the damage to the places on Capitol Square here in Madison this morning.

As we drove around the square, I made a recording of myself so I'd have a list: "Home Savings Bank, 2 broken windows, broken door. The toy store has 2 broken windows. Fromagination [the cheese store] has 2 broken windows and a broken door. Park Hotel... The Post, the restaurant there, has 2 broken windows....

Said lawyer Andy Cook, quoted in "Catholic schools will sue Public Health to open as scheduled," (Blaska Policy Werkes).Shortly after normal office hours on Friday (08-21-2020) Madison/Dane County Public Health issued an order closing down in-school education for students above second grade at private schools for the upcoming school year — matching the voluntary stance taken by area public schools.

Barnstorming Rio, Wisconsin

Instead of Ghostly Nostalgia, a Living Connection to What Was Pandemic stir-craziness manifested itself on a glorious mid-August Sunday afternoon. From my second-floor window, I watched scattered cumulus clouds in a blue sunny sky dapple my small town Wisconsin neighborhood with slow moving shadows, spotting the landscape like the Holstein cows that define America’s Dairyland. Yeah. I need to get out of the house. So I saddled up for Rio, Wisconsin, a village of 1,059 people (as counted in 2010...

Book review: In two new scholarly works, a shared critique of the court’s approach to church and state

Steven Green is the Fred H. Paulus professor of law and director of the Center for Religion, Law & Democracy at Willamette University College of Law. It is rare for two books on the same subject – and written by some of the nation’s leading scholars – to be published not only in the same year but practically in the same month. But that’s what has happened with two new works on the First Amendment’s religion clauses. (Possibly, there is less of a coincidence than meets the eye in that they share...

Break It Up [?]. Richard Kreitner and American Secessionism

“To give the victory to the right, not bloody bullets, but peaceful ballots only, are necessary.”  Thus wrote Abraham Lincoln in notes that he used to prepare his notable speeches.  One can, of course, question the empirical validity of his assertion; that it was necessary, in fact, to expend 750,000 lives in order to procure victory for the righteous cause of ending chattel slavery in the United States.  The ballots that elected Lincoln as president were not remotely sufficient. But Lincol...

As she walked the halls, students she hadn’t seen since they moved to remote learning in March surprised her with big, enthusiastic hugs. When the bell rang at the end of the day, those same students hung out around c...

Kanye West Signals His 2020 Bid Is Really About Peeling Votes From Biden

On Thursday, rap artist Kanye West hinted at the true motive driving his futile bid for the presidency: sabotaging President Donald Trump’s Democratic rival, Joe Biden. West, an outspoken Trump supporter, told Forbes editor Randall Lane he was “walking…to win” when asked if him running for president was an effort to peel votes from Biden. “I’m not going to argue with you,” the rapper said when Lane noted that his bid could only be a spoiler campaign given that too many state ballots won’t be ...
