Practically Speaking

Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too. Kyle looks at things from the taxpayers' perspective in a creative, yet down to earth way, addressing them from a practical point of view.

Top 15 posts of 2008

Bigger picture, Blogging

At year's end, we tend to reflect on the past year and note what was significant. I looked through my postings to see what blog posts captured the most attention. Here is my top 15 list, ending with the most popular* #1 post:

15. You can't wash your car but the car was can?

14. HG&D (Sex Ed) "Outcomes" on school board agenda Tuesday

13.  Ford has a better idea: Export manufacturing to non-green countries

12. Fountain Brook Crossing: 2 unbelievably big buildings  

11. Fountain Brook Crossing: Big building, Big zoning change, Big precedent, BIG mistake

10. The 3 Rs: Recession, Rising energy prices, and Referendum  

9. Virtual Schools, Ethanol back in committee, Photo ID languishing in Senate  

8. "Inconvenient Fact(s)" RE: 100% Zero-carbon electricity in 10 years

7. Ethanol Bill: Just what would be a conflict of interest?  

6. Fastest growing new religion gains one more convert  

5. Congressman Sensenbrenner's Town Hall meeting   

4. Let them eat (and drink) ethanol ala Marie Antoinette

3. Taxpayers need a referendum reprieve

2. America's Climate Security Act "Catastrophic for Wisconsin"  

1. Cap-and-Trade? Maybe it should be called Cap-and-Raid!  

As you can see, the majority of the top 15 dealt with energy and going green/global warming/carbon tax.

Local school board and city issues are popular too, they just don't have broader Google search appeal.

I still enjoy writing travel, interesting places, recipe, and just for fun related postings. For me, variety is the spice of life!
