Wasserman running for Darling's seat; Walker's rumored departure

Learned Saturday at the Grand Slam event for the Hank Aaron State Trail .....State Rep. Sheldon Wasserman (D-Milwaukee) is absolutely, positively, fer sure, running for the state senate seat now held by Alberta Darling (R-River Hills). Just ask him.

Heard at the Grand Slam and around town... rumors that County Executive Scott Walker (rumor 1) will leave office as early as December to take a job with (rumor 2) the Department of Homeland Security. That would open the door for a special election and a run by (rumor 3) State Rep. Jeff "Steal the Airport" Stone (R-Greendale).

Best Grand Slam typographical error of the day: City pedestrian and bicycling guy Dave Schlabowske was supposed to be the Bike Tour Leader, but his name tag officially proclaimed him to be the "Bike Tour Leaker." Oops.

Wow. Homeland Security? What happened to FEMA? You must be slower than the average liberal. Both of those are at least 2 months old.

Last time I looked, FEMA was part of Homeland Security. Speaking of slow...
