State legislators on both sides of the aisle introduced “Collin’s Law” Thursday, which would require Wisconsin newborns to be screened for a nervous system disease known as Krabbe Leukodystrophy.
Amid announcements regarding Associated Students of Madison representative positions, the ASM Spring Election resulted in the decision that has been on the campus community’s mind for months: the approval of the Recreational Sports Master Plan referendum.
Each year, football fans everywhere ritualistically gather around their televisions for the last game of the season. The penultimate showdown will occasionally live up to the impossibly large hype, but often the games aren't as close or as interesting as one would like. That's why there's more to the Super Bowl than the game itself.
Last Monday, Madison Area Technical College President Bettsey Barhorst asked for structural reforms similar to what UW-Madison and Chancellor Biddy Martin have been working toward the past few months.
Mike Mikalsen and I don't agree on much. Mikalsen, the research assistant and lead strategist for state Rep. Steve Nass, R-Whitewater, has played a central role in Nass' work as the main thorn in the side of UW-Madison. So as I spoke with Mikalsen over the phone last week concerning the proposed New Badger Partnership, it was no surprise that I disagreed with much of what he said.
Let's face it, nobody ever agrees with the Oscars completely, and we here at The Daily Cardinal are no exeption. So we crafted our own list of the top 10 films of 2010––our best picture nominees, if you will.

Or maybe it is a result of intentional distortions of the truth. But over the past week of protests that have enveloped the Capitol, there has been an overwhelming amount of information coming from our little isthmus, and it is time to set some things straight.
Every two years, Madison city government refreshes itself with elections for seats in its Common Council. Sometimes these elections are trivial—see Madison's District 4, which very well might be represented by Mike Verveer until the apocalypse, and possibly afterward. But other districts, such as campus-area District 8, serve as wonderful laboratories for democracy, with competitive races in almost every election cycle.
Madison may be stuck between Minneapolis and Chicago, but that doesn't mean it doesn't have its fair share of quality concerts, plays and the like to keep an arts addict occupied. The Daily Cardinal Arts Staff compiled a list of the shows they are most looking forward to this semester, and thankfully this spring Madison offers a wealth of options to choose from.
The Daily Cardinal Editorial Board lists its most influential figures in Madison's 77 square miles surrounded by reality (apologies to Tammy Baldwin and Scott Walker, you'll have to wait for our state list).
