Began the show with the legislative calendar and how Wisconsin’s full-time state Legislature is taking the final 10 months of the year off.

The Assembly’s last day was this week and the Senate will meet for one day in March.

So, we discussed how that might go over, hitting the campaign trail on issues such as PFAS and legalizing marijuana, while being a full-time Legislature that could actually legislate, instead of campaign with the promise to legislate. Does this give an advantage to Democrats, who don’t control the Legislature, or outside candidates who want to take someone’s seat?

In the second half of the show (20:10), we began with a story about how Joe Biden’s dog, Commander, has bitten an exorbitant amount of Secret Service members. What happens if we bit that many people?

After that, we talked about the judge race in La Crosse County between Mark Huesmann and Candice Tlustosch — who both recently were interviewed on the show — and how partisanship comes into play.

Then, we finally got into La Crosse County’s most famous person (27:50), and the most famous people in each Wisconsin county. Sadly, three of the top four spots are literal killers.

Ended the show with a message to Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers (32:45), and how he could use the state Legislature being out of session for the next 10 months to his advantage.
