Remember connect the dots? Growing up in the 1950s (we’ll pause here while you do the math) we had an entire soft-cover book of them. And we liked it that way!
In the spirit of Christmases past, the elves at the Werkes crafted a connect the dots game that is fun and instructive! For academic honors, schitz & giggles: Connect the dots on these headlines — the first three in today’s Wisconsin State Journal:
• “Madison schools Board debates honors classes”
• “Madison schools: Renaming Jefferson middle” school
• “Enrollment numbers to continue declining”
• “Board should give principal his job back”
• “What happens at fight club stays at East high school”
PARENTAL WARNING: This is going to be difficult. And depressing as hell! The Madison Metropolitan School District says so itself. Our public schools are experiencing “an increase in students open enrolling* [a new gerund?] out of the district — a complex set of factors that board members said will require complex solutions.” (* Open enrollment allows Madison residents to send their kids to another school district willing to accept them.)
Crayons ready? GO!
No Tr•mp Today!
• Those who followed Fauci in demanding our schools and restaurants be shut down are now praising the Chinese for rebelling against their authoritarian state Covid lockdown.
• California governor Gavin Newsom says he will not challenge Joe Biden if the President wants re-election. Neither would Bobby Kennedy challenge LBJ in 1968 — until Gene McCarthy had the moxie. Who will have the moxie this time around?
• Does anyone doubt that Herschel Walker is going to lose the Georgia senate race today? (Technically, not Tr•mp.)
• Badger QB Graham Mertz is entering the transfer portal into another dimension. Mertz was brilliant in his very first game against Illinois. Ohio State and other bigs wanted him. Is it possible Paul Chryst f-‘d him up?
• Best thing for Jim Leonhard: Be like Mertz — move on to a new opportunity to grow!
• If it’s called “cryptocurrency” doesn’t the name itself say it’s fake?
Blaska’s Bottom Line: The indentured servants at the Stately Manor might tune in soccer on their b&w Philco if the soccer gnomes of Zurich would lower the pitcher’s mound and move in the fences to produce more runs.
