Reflections on a ‘rigged’ election, ‘pitchforks and torches’ and a QB in decline

A look at what we’re reading this morning:

The presidential campaign is getting more and more surreal, with the New York Times reporting on Donald Trump’s claims that the election is rigged, and our own Sheriff David Clarke fanning the flames with a tweet.

The Packers looked pretty bad losing to the Dallas Cowboys at Lambeau on Sunday, and Aaron Rodgers lived up to Bob McGinn’s gloomy assessment of his performance over the previous 16 games.

In other sports news, the Chicago Cubs lost Sunday night to the Los Angeles Dodgers, evening the National League Championship Series at a game apiece, with the next three to be played in L.A.

The Neighborhood News Service has this profile of Kimberley Motley, former Mrs. Wisconsin and an international human rights lawyer.
