Today's Social Dilemma, how many of you are getting tired of the Packers Rodgers drama? Between the Packers president dissing their star quarterback and Rodgers wearing a ridiculous tshirt and making sarcastic remarks, it seems nobody seems to care about the most loyal fans in the NFL.

Today's Social Dilemma, Pickup trucks are under attack from the publication Consumer Reports. They say that today's full size trucks have too many blind spots and therefore are especially dangerous to pedestrians. For those of you who drive full sized Pickup trucks, do you agree with that assessment? For those of you who don't drive one, do you find them menacing to share the road with?

Today's Social Dilemma, another high profile chain restaurant has arrived in Madison. Raising Cane's serves 'chicken fingers 'with fries and Texas toast. I've noticed a trend with restaurants that serve chicken these days. It is all boneless white meat. No drum sticks, thighs or wings. It appears young people don't like eating chicken off the bone. I think they are missing the best part of the bird.

Today's Social Dilemma, Madison police are coming under fire because there were only 4 arrests at the Mifflin street block party. It seems as though the police didn't notice a student destroying an SUV in front of a cheering crowd. There were few masks and too many underage drinkers at this once cool event. How is it, that the best and brightest students in the state act with such craven disregard for themselves and others ...

Today's Social Dilemma, over the last year Ted Nugent has dismissed the notion that we are in a global pandemic, that masks are an effective way to slow the spread of the virus and that getting tested is a good idea. Guess who tested positive for Covid 19 and is sicker than a dog? Ted Nugent not only tested positive, he is really sick. Rather than admitting that he was wrong, he is now saying he won't take the vaccine. Do y...

Today's Social Dilemma, 19 year old Brandon Hole shot and killed 8 of his former coworkers and then himself at the Fedex distribution center in Indianapolis last week. Last year his parents warned police that he was a danger to himself and others but he was still able to buy 2 assault rifles shortly after the police took his shot gun away. Is it time to make it harder for people to buy guns in this country?

Today's Social Dilemma, the other day I had lunch at one of my favorite Madison restaurants. The owner told me that he was having a difficult time finding employees. This isn't just a problem in the restaurant industry. It seems as though, a lot of young people don't want to work at jobs were they have get a little dirty. One of my first jobs was at Rocky Rococo's. I learned how to work with others and solve problem...

Today's Social Dilemma, again, we have two controversial police stops making the news. One of the stops led to the death of a young man when a police officer mistakenly used her gun rather than a Taser. Both these stops started with issues of license plates. Is it time to have officers use their cameras to take a photo of the expired or improper plate and mail the citation to the vehicle's owner?

Some drivers have posted pictures of plastic bottles they have urinating in. In some ways, aren't consumers partly responsible for these drivers being so busy?
