  1. "Wisconsonize" - is that a new verb? OK, sounds good. The people of Wisconsin showed us how to stand up and fight for what is right. They may have lost something in the short term, but, in the long run they may yet win. The republicans who voted to end collective bargaining rights will be booted out.

    Here in Albany, what exactly can we do? We don't have recall provisions in our constitution do we? Are McEneny, Canestrari and Breslin listening to us? Is there someone else we should be pressuring?

    Finally, most important - who is bringing the pizza to the capitol wednesday night?
