Family lured Jerrianne and her husband to South Milwaukee in 2002 from Southern California where she worked as, first, a journalist, then, as a court information officer.

A friend sent me an email the other day advocating term limits for Congressional representatives. This is my reply.
Term limits might be a good idea in some circumstances, particularly in gerrymandered districts that are manipulated to ensure the safety of the incumbent for as long as that person chooses to remain in office, regardless of how self-serving/unaccountable to constituents/ineffective s/he might be.

Congratulations to our neighbor (and my friend) Janet Halfmann! I've read this wonderful book and can attest that the Moonbeam award judges used excellent judgment!
