Recalls followed me cross country

I’m back in the office today after moving my oldest stepdaughter, a recent UW Law School grad, to Phoenix for her first job as an attorney.

We drove from Madison to Kansas City on August 9th and stayed with my cousin there. The following morning, as we drove into Kansas, I caught Wisconsin State Journal reporter Mary Spicuzza being interviewed on NPR’s Here and Now¬†program. The recall results were also front page news in the High Plains Daily Leader Times¬†of Liberal, Kansas, which featured Madison AP reporter Scott Bauer‘s story.

Back here in Wisconsin, WRN had plenty of help from our affiliates, in covering both sets of recalls. I’ll be attempting to put it all in perspective Friday when Steve Walters of WisconsinEye will have me, Mary, and Jason Stein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Capitol Roundtable.

One other note from the road has to do with concealed carry. There’s a very nice park adjacent to my daughter’s apartment complex in Scottsdale, with a sign at the entrance which states “weapons prohibited, except firearms and knives.” It’ll be interesting to see whether similar postings start cropping up in Wisconsin.
