The charged political atmosphere of Milwaukee may be challenging,
but it didn't deter somebody from buying a whole lot of sausage.
- Over the weekend, the Milwaukee Journal
Sentinel had a special report on
the political environment of metro Milwaukee, labeling it "the most polarized part of
a polarized state in a polarized nation."
- The Tall Tree Foods Famous Racing Sausages? Doesn't quite
have the same ring as Klement's. Nonetheless, the Journal Sentinel reports that Tall Tree Foods has acquired the Milwaukee-based sausage company
that's known for sponsoring a certain set of Milwaukee Brewers mascots. But if the
Tall Tree folks were smart enough to close the sale, they're probably smart
enough to not mess with the sausage names.
- If the Milwaukee Brewers want to continue their hot start to
the season, they'll have to do so without the services of Ryan Braun, at least
temporarily. Braun's lingering oblique injury forced the Brewers to place him on the disabled list over the weekend. He's
out until at least May 12.
- A Republican state representative probably won't be leaving
any laptop computers or expensive cameras in his car from now on. Or at least
leaving them in plain view of passersby. Because, as Fox 6 reports, doing so
over the weekend led to them getting stolen.
- And finally, welcome to the 53rd anniversary of testing the
world's most advanced technologically advanced adult diaper. Well, actually it
was a spacesuit worn by astronaut Alan Shepard, who 53 years ago became the
first American in space. But, as Mashable details, Shepard really had to go.
