Morning Reads for Monday, March 11, 2019

Y’all. Daylight Savings Time is for the birds. I am with all my peeps out there who have sent emails asking for the state to do away with this sleep-sucking, body-crushing measure. Solidarity, y’all.

Swerving and driving slow on the interstate in Lowndes County will cost you a $508,000 traffic ticket. That’s gotta be worth at least a 1/2 mil property tax reduction. I bet they’ll just buy more toys with it instead. http://www.walb.com/2019/03/08/lowndes-co-deputies-seize-more-than-k/

Maybe they were disoriented by DST.

If I had to move $500K physically, I’d hire some kids on spring break who know how Americans drive on interstates, or I’d box it up and ship it.

Figures Charlie would support big government controlling our lives and dictating to us what time it is. Rep. Jonah Ryan is right on this issue:

So they are really doing this… https://www.apnews.com/d0c8c0b1db964bf08ac2175d5ce38d8e Lucky for me, I’m back in GA the week before this happens. If my Milwaukee summer calendar recall is correct, this falls between the closing of Summerfest and start of Fest Italiano. Also the MLB all-stars normally play around that time.

While much of Milwaukee has any number of delights to offer the visitor, the big question remains whether the Wisconsin State Fair will be in the general vicinity at that time. Say what you will about local cuisine, it is the cream puffs that are literally to die for. And, should they be available during the Convention, just which offended special interest group will be outside the vending stand?

State Fair is 5 miles from the downtown and a few weeks later. Not to fear, any bakery, local café, coffee house and even grocery store – will have crème puffs. I think any good cook or baker has the state fair recipe (I do). I am never in want of a cream puff regardless of when I fly into MKE or wherever in Wisconsin I travel.

Per my source who has Buck’s season tickets, The Arena has a Cream Puff vender. Convention saved.

Yes, but who is it that will be offended by the cream puffs? PETA because of dairy cattle? Labor unions because the puffs are not union-made? The Surgeon General? Just mentioning the cream puffs makes my A1c go up.
