Behind the gender gap "President Bush makes overtures to women, but is largely solidifying support among men." Does this strike anyone else as being a somewhat poorly worded headline? Or is it just me?

JS Online: State factory jobs hit lowest since '92
Nationally, there are signs of an economic comeback, with initial jobless claims falling, productivity improving and factory orders mostly increasing. Still, Wisconsin's manufacturing positions were down almost 102,000 from the recent peak in August 1999 and down almost 39,000 since the recession officially ended in November 2001, government figures show.
Interesting article on the decline in manufacturing levels in Wisconsin.

The Next Best Thing to Being President
With John Edwards's decision to quit the race, expected to be announced officially today, John Kerry's nomination as the Democratic candidate for president is secure. Speculation about his choice for vice president can now begin in earnest. Mr. Edwards himself is an obvious choice: a skilled campaigner, he would also attract Southern voters. Other possibilities include Senator Evan Bayh of Indiana and Gov. Bill Richardson of New Mexico, who have both regional appeal and executive experience, and dark-horse candidates like former Senator Sam Nunn of Georgia. Amid this conjecture, however, one name is conspicuously absent: Bill Clinton.
Ah, the running mate speculation begins...but what would THIS ticket be called? "JFK2 & JFK3"?

Yahoo! News - Police bust up nearly nude protest
"Before their arrest, the activists chanted "Love in, Fur out" as they frolicked on a mattress outside the Ivy League school. A large crowd, including several blue-collar workers, watched the protest with broad smiles across their faces. "We thought we'd seen it all, but this is a first," said Scott Nelson, an electrician on his lunch break."

maybe...although I've learned to not trust these late February early March thaws. It's not quite shirtsleeves weather, even for us tough 'ole Wisconsin types. The backyard is a quagmire of melting ice and lose-your-boots mud, although the snowbanks are still six feet tall. There is that new, fresh smell to the air--mixed with the odors of last years' rotting vegetation and wandering, lovestruck skunks.

....almost time to get the bike out!!!
