Friday night, stay warm at home and watch InterCHANGE!


Here are the topics the panel discusses on InterCHANGE Friday night at 6:30 on

Milwaukee Public Television Channel 10 with a repeat Sunday morning at 11:00:


1 – Payday Loan Bill.


Why is Wisconsin having such a hard time coming up with a proposal to control these

payday loan stores?  We are the only state that doesn’t regulate these storefront loan

sharks.  Should people be protected from these predatory lenders, or should they be

allowed to become victims of their own poverty and/or stupidity?


2 – Prison “Escape”.

Isn’t it absolutely mind-boggling that two convicts, including a convicted killer, can

simply walk out of a state prison with forged release documents?  They are both later

captured, one at least, on the streets of Milwaukee 275 miles from the prison!  Don’t you

think someone should lose their job over this?  Shouldn’t state officials be a little more

forthcoming about how this happened, and what’s being done to make sure it doesn’t

happen again? 


3 – Paul Ryan.


Wisconsin Republican Congressman Paul Ryan is showing up everywhere.  He seems to

be the main critic of the Obama administration economic and health policies.  He shows

up on the network news, and all the Sunday morning network talk shows.  He keeps

getting mentioned as a possible candidate for president or vice-president in 2012, though

he says he won’t run for president.  Would he be a good presidential candidate?  Would

he make a good candidate for vice-president?  Is he too much of a policy wonk to appeal

to the general public?  Some say he is “Kennedyesque.”  Is he?


4 – Olympics.


As we get ready for the Winter Olympics, what will be the big stories?  Already, beautiful

 skier Lindsey Vonn has captured the attention of the public.  Who will be the others?  Is

America still as enchanted by the Olympics as it was 20 or 30 years ago?  Who will be the

athlete with Wisconsin ties that most captures our attention?
