Walker’s lead in Wisconsin recall election tightens in new poll:

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (Morry Gash/AP)Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker maintains a narrow lead in his recall election, but his standing has diminished in recent weeks, according to a new poll released on the eve of the election.

Walker leads Democratic challenger Tom Barrett, the mayor of Milwaukee, by just 3 percentage points in a new survey of likely voters (pdf) conducted by Public Policy Polling. Walker leads Barrett 50 to 47 percent, down from the 50 to 45 percent matchup PPP found in a poll conducted three weeks ago. The margin of error for this week's poll is plus or minus 2.8 percentage points.

According to PPP, Walker—who was targeted for a recall after waging war on state public employee unions in 2011—is winning among men, whites, seniors and residents of the Milwaukee suburbs. Barrett leads among women, minorities, young voters and residents of Milwaukee County and greater Madison. Barrett is also winning independent voters 48 to 46 percent, a lead that is within the margin of error.

Currently, polls, campaign finance statistics and anecdotal evidence suggest Republicans are more engaged and excited than Democrats for the June 5 race.......

Not with Ed Schultz in town. He's broadcasting from THE MIC 92.1 right now. According to John Nicols, a poll today confirms the above. (Folks in Chicago/Rkfd. can listen to WCPT AM 820, or FM 92.5, 92.7, 99.9)

Band Dates
My boyfriend has a classic Rock'n'Blues band called DVS and he also drums for the Blueshawks as well. If anyone wants to attend, check out the dates and look for us there! They also have a Myspace band page which is still being worked on. Feel free to add yourself to it!

Please, I need some cool people to show up. I get tired sitting by myself.
Honestly, while I love DVS and the guys in it, I really, really can't wait til he gets his hard rock band, Assmonkey, back together!

ya hey there say hello!
Admittedly, this site isn't much to write home about - yet. But I noticed at least two new people put it on their friends list - but I wondered why they're not showing up here. So... maybe try this...

To join the group, you hit the little "+" icon at the top of it's user info page, and then "join the community" - but you also have to click "add to my friends list" too.

So - that oughta do it.

If you know anyone with bands, artists, etc., be sure to let them know.

And you're welcome to say anything here now just to get it rolling. Like - talk about the weather - I don't care.
