At least this time.

The President-elect supports a playoff system for college football. So do I.

If we can have a playoff for women's lacrosse, then there should be a playoff for Division I football.

A hero returns


My good friend and colleague, state Representative Mark Gundrum (R-New Berlin) returns home tonight from his deployment in Iraq. Mark told me before he left that he hoped to be home by Thanksgiving, and I and many others are happy that he is, indeed, home for the holidays.

My apologies for the short notice, but friends, supporters and well wishers are asked to welcome Mark home tonight at the entrance to Concourse D at Mitchell International around 6:00. Mark will be on a Midwest Express flight from Atlanta.

State Senator Mary Lazich blogged about Mark back in July and shared some great photos.

Welcome home, Mark, and thank you for serving our great country!
