Kevin Fischer is a veteran broadcaster, the recipient of over 150 major journalism awards from the Milwaukee Press Club, the Wisconsin Associated Press, the Northwest Broadcast News Association, the Wisconsin Bar Association, and others. He has been seen and heard on Milwaukee TV and radio stations for over three decades. A longtime aide to state Senate Republicans in the Wisconsin Legislature, Kevin can be seen offering his views on the news on the public affairs program, "InterCHANGE," on Milwaukee Public Television Channel 10, and heard filling in on Newstalk 1130 WISN. He lives with his wife, Jennifer, and their lovely young daughter, Kyla Audrey, in Franklin.
"Documents obtained by Townhall show the Democratic Party encouraged party activists to accuse the GOP of intimidating minorities on Election Day even if no evidence of intimidation existed in the 2004 presidential election. The tactic is being used again in 2008, this time to downplay fraud charges against a predominantly minority non-profit supporting Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama."
Last week I blogged that Franklin Alderman Steve Olson is sought after for his advice by other municipalities considering adopting Franklin-like sex offender ordinances. Olson’s latest discussions have been with Muskego.
I like what Olson is doing and how he’s doing it. His blunt talk about people on the sex offender registry is right on the money.
Take a look at this picture:
Anything look unusual?
Anything JUMP out at you?
Yeh, it's a pizza.
But not your ordinary pizza.
....is topped with frogs' legs.
Appropriately called "The Hopper Pizza," it's served up at the London chain restaurants, Eco. A British website reports, "The ‘Hopper Pizza’ is topped with between six and eight legs on a traditional tomato and mozzarella base with capers, fresh herbs and a scoop of anchovy sorbet."
Now, I'm not fussy, I eat just about everything. But this just got added to the short list of dishes I won't eat. Hell, I won't even experiment, sample, whatever.
One animal right's group is calling the pizza, "barbaric." I won't go that far, but c'mon.
"We'll have a large sausage, onion, mushroom, black olive and frogs' legs, please"
It's just wrong.
This isn't the first time Eco has come up with a strange pizza.
A few weeks ago, I read an MSN article on bacon. So-called “expert tasters” at Cook’s Illustrated didn’t have kind things to say about Wisconsin’s own Nueske’s bacon:
“Despite the company’s claims of using particularly lean hogs, our tasters found this bacon ‘very fatty’ with ‘hardly any meat,’ and many complained of its ‘overwhelming smoke flavor,’ which was akin to eating a ‘wood-burning stove,’ or ‘ashtray.’ ($19.95 for 2 pounds, plus shipping, www.nueskes.com)”
I made nothing of it. What do they know, I thought.
The company is actually expanding and doing quite well, thank you, as reported nicely in today’s Journal Sentinel.
