Is there a Cubs fan in the joint?
I grew up a Chicago Cubs fan. Our family outing every summer was a trip to Wrigley Field to cheer Andy Pafco, Hank Sauer, Wayne Terwilliger, a/k/a the hapless Cubs, in the friendly confines of Wrigley Field. Then dinner at the Edgewater and that was summer.
I never waivered in my support of the Cubs until multi-billionaire Phil "chewing gum" Wrigley, team owner, blamed the Cub losses on the Major League Baseball Players union. (Sort of like Jamie Dimon blaming the lone female at JP Morgan for billions of losses.)
But eventually I switched to the Brewers. Bud Selig instead of Phil Wrigley? Giving up was an attractive option.
Guess what! The Cubs now belong to the Tom Ricketts family. They are like the Koch brothers and all that is evil about politics. So, DZ, time to join the Brewer fans in kicking the Cubs in the pants. Join us!
Meanwhile, Charlie Dee has retired from teaching at MATC in Milwaukee. The good news? He will have even more time for politics!
Bob Fest North is tomorrow. We will focus on corrupt politics, the recall and future plans! Join us in Chippewa Falls. See you at the fair grounds tomorrow!

I hope Charlie Dee resumes writing as he used to in his column for the old Milwaukee Journal - - - he was one of the few bright lights near the end of that paper's days...
