It still bothers me that an historic building like this has been reduced to rubble in Menasha.

I like cool, old, character buildings that preserve the past.

But today there is even more reason for me to wonder out loud on the PhilCast about the project.

So now the significant cornerstone of the building has been lost?

People are free to take bricks from the site I guess, so maybe someone took the cornerstone by mistake?

Drag marks were found on the site, but no marker. Gone. Vanished.
Accident or intentional?

Either way, DUH.
Why would they leave the thing just laying among the rubble if it was that important?

I'll have the latest on the PhilCast today at 3:00.

Jose vs. Joe

Tuesday, Sep, 9 2014

Time after time he sent out resumes and left messages trying to get a job.

His name is Jose.

He says when he tried changing his name on his resume to Joe, that all changed.

Hmmm....there's no racism in corporate America, so how could this be true?

We'll discuss on the Tuesday PhilCast.

Meantime, CLICK HERE to watch his little video presentation on his experiment.

OH...and here's the Jesus in a pierogi picture for you.

Redskin logo not only in Washington

Monday, Sep, 8 2014

We all know about the controversy swirling around the NFL's Washington Redskins' team name and logo. Some think it's offensive and should be changed. Others feels it's tradition and that it should be left alone.

What I found interesting is the fact that the Sheboygan Co. Sheriff's Dept. uses almost an identical patch.
Take a look...

So have there been complaints about the patch like there have been complaints about the Redskins' logo?
Seems like we have a theme going here. No doubt they look very much alike. So where's the outcry in Sheboygan? Turns out, there was a real concern about this logo, but not in the way you might think. It's a fascinating story I'll talk about with the Sheboygan Co. Sheriff on the PhilCast on Monday in the 4:30 segment. Join us.

PC NFL Picks Challenge

Thursday, Sep, 4 2014

...and so it begins!
Another NFL season is upon us.

For the entire season we'll be opening up the Thursday PhilCast with the PC NFL Picks Challenge. This year, after losing to Dan Kohn of the Post-Crescent in a close battle, I am taking on morning sports guy Justin Hull. Pick along with us each week and see how you do.

Then Friday it's the return of "Pack Yak" with my co-host Rich Ratay.
It's all about the NFL now until Feb. 2015 when the Packers beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl.

Dude to DMV; "Let me wear makeup"

Wednesday, Sep, 3 2014

There he is.

Yup, I said he.

This is the 16-year-old boy who is suing his state's DMV because they won't let him wear makeup for his driver's license photograph.

His mom says that's his look, 24/7.

The DMV says we've got rules about not misrepresenting yourself in the picture.

I guess the court will have to decide now.

What do you think?

We'll discuss on the Wednesday PhilCast.
