Peace Of Mind In Wisconsin

There's a political dust-up over recall protestors marching near or in front of Scott Walker's Wauwatosa home.

My take: One march makes the point.

Which includes the fact that the marchers gave Walker notice that they were coming, while when Walker disrupted public employees and citizens' peace of mind, it was a sucker punch.

Walker hid his core policy intention during the 2010 campaign - - to demolish public employee collective bargaining - - as the Journal Sentinel, the state's largest newspaper and which had given Walker its endorsement has subsequently acknowledged:
Walker never campaigned on disenfranchising public-employee unions. If he had, he would not have been elected. He got a spare 52% of the vote - hardly a mandate for what he is trying to do.
