Gas Pains

Tom grew up in Milwaukee, bartended in Wauwatosa in the '70s and moved here in 1984.

Commentary, observations and musings about the outdoors, life in general and maybe Tosa politics and personalities will be the order of the day. He savors a lively debate as much as terrific cooking.

You're Fired!

Governor Walker, Politics-Other, Public Policy

Union Goon

Governor Walker, Union Goon, Union Thuggery, Wauwatosa, The Big Fat Middle
