milwaukee props: wisconsin products represent

Saw two briefs today on Wisconsin products that played a significant role in the inaugural activities yesterday.

From Milwaukee Versus:
One of Neenah Paper’s greenest papers, CLASSIC CREST Papers Recycled 100 Natural White was chosen as the paper for the official invitation to the January 20 inauguration of President-elect Barack Obama.
From The Milwaukee-Journal Sentinel:

When MacFarlane sales representative Mary Jo Bergs heard the menu for President Barack Obama's inauguration luncheon included pheasant, she started making some phone calls. MacFarlane had recently shipped 400 pheasants to a distributor in Washington, D.C.

Bergs says the distributor confirmed the pheasants for the luncheon came from MacFarlane.

Hopefully it was not the bird that did in Byrd.

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

I also thought it was pretty cool that I saw two of the featured performers at the Neighborhood Ball last night. Both Sting and Stevie were highlights of my summer. Glad I choose my concerts wisely!

Luckily, I did not see Ray Romano.

  1. Perhaps now that Cheney's out of a job (and THANK GOD FOR THAT!), he can go to work shooting pheasants for MacFarlane. On second thought, their workers' comp claims would increase at an alarming rate, so maybe that's not a good idea...


Thank you for stopping by The Accidental Wisconsinite. Your feedback is welcome, but please be civilized. Remember, if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all!
