 Deficit attention disorder
 Walker, who claimed budget management skills as his primary qualification to be your governor, has run up a deficit more than double what Jim Doyle did during the Great Recession.

 The iCloud hack and the kids these days
 I was very excited the other day when I heard that celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence, Jill Scott, and Kate Upton had their iCloud accounts hacked and nude photographs of them were being posted all over the internet -- but not for the reason you might think.

 Poll position: Somehow, Walker is more popular than his policies
 Yeah, I know what you're thinking. "Oh, look, it's a day that ends in Y, so Bullock is slamming Scott Walker again." You bet! But this day, I have new results from the Marquette University Law School poll to talk about, and since the poll has been eerily accurate - nailing Gov. Walker's recall win in 2012, for example - the results are worth paying attention to.

 Lessons in crowd control from Ferguson, Europe and the classroom
 I was doing some errands the other day, catching up on podcasts in the car between them, when I heard this: "The behavior of crowds tends to be determined by what's happening outside the crowd." I could not help but draw the connection between what was being said about crowds and what is happening now in Ferguson and around the country.

 We the living make deaths "senseless"
 "Senseless death"-- and its companion, "senseless tragedy"-- is one of the tritest, emptiest phrases you hear. And, sadly, you're hearing it a lot these days, although it's hard to say that anyone's death is in any way sensible, other than perhaps the lucky few who die of very old age on their own terms with friends and family around all their affairs fully settled.

 Jay Bullock heads to the mailbox
 From time to time, I like to check under the bridge to see what my trolls are up to. Wait, did I just say that out loud? I mean, I like to dig into the comments to my columns, as well as the emails they precipitate, and share my responses with those correspondents and world.

 Why Ron Johnson's lawsuit really hurts my brain
 Good news, everybody! Wisconsin's senior Sen. (and man, is that a tough phrase to type) Ron Johnson, Republican, is appealing the dismissal of his lawsuit over the Affordable Care Act, so the hilarity can continue for the foreseeable future.

 100 things (give or take) Paul Ryan could have proposed to help end poverty but
 Last week, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Janesville) set forth another in his continuing series (like Harry Potter, but with more magical thinking) of budget committee plans designed to "help" the poor. I'd like to offer 100 things Paul Ryan could have proposed in this most recent version but didn't that might actually help the poor.

 Common Core is not the problem: testing, paranoia, and pandering are
 Last week, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker finally got off the fence and called for the state's lawmakers to "repeal Common Core and replace it with standards set by people in Wisconsin." Clearly an attempt to motivate his base, Walker's statement -- like most anti-Common Core sentiments -- missed the mark on what the real problems are and opened up an ugly can of worms.

 Tort-happy Republicans vs. the Affordable Care Act
 For a party that has long claimed to oppose frivolous lawsuits, the Republicans last week sure seemed pretty tort-happy.
