Here’s hoping you’ve worked up an appetite, because it’s cream-puff eating time. The Wisconsin State Fair kicks off its 2008 run today. In true state-fair fashion, REO Speedwagon will be headlining the event’s main stage tonight at 8 p.m. Although the group’s classic lineup dissolved years ago, the band’s current roster has been intact for two decades, making frequent stops in Wisconsin. In fact, tonight’s show will be their third Wisconsin gig in a month. If recent set lists are any indication, expect a show heavy on hits from 1980’s Hi Infidelity, vintage rockers and material from their newest, Wal-Mart-only album, Find Your Own Way Home.


The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?
