Despite the forecasted snow Friday and whatever malady I’m currently suffering through, I will be on Wisconsin Public Radio’s Ideas Network’s The Morning Show Week in Review Friday at 8 a.m.
Given the tech that didn’t work last time, let’s attribute how I sound Friday to that and not my illness, which makes me sound closer to Barry White or Lurch than myself. Since it’s audio and not video, should a nosebleed begin while I’m on the air I can continue. I think.
My opponent Friday will be Matt Rothschild, of the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign. Matt and I go back to the days of the late Wisconsin Public Television show “WeekEnd,” last seen early in this, uh, century.

Before that, this coming Friday is National Puppy Day, National Chip and Dip Day, and Melba Toast Day. Saturday is National Chocolate Covered Raisin Day, one day before Pecan Day and Waffle Day. and two days before National Spinach Day.
Monday is also Make Up Your Own Holiday Day. Really.
