    At the top of the hour of the Monday morning 8 O’Clock Buzz, Jake Vander Zanden from the Center For Limnology at the University of Wisconsin – Madison, joined Brian Standing to talk about Trout Fishing In Wisconsin. Do you think Richard Brautigan wrote a book about that too? Trout fishing is good in Wisconsin right now but as climate change continues and the average temperature of Wisconsin continues to rise (about 4 to 9 degrees in the next 10 years scientists predict) it will have a drastic effect on Wisconsin’s trout population.

    Update: I have now watched Star Trek Enterprise and I do not think it is a lame prequel. After months of badgering, I was finally convinced by a fellow Star Trek enthusiast to watch an episode. I liked it. I guess I just thought it was going to be lame because of Quantum Leap? Which, I admit, I have also never seen.    I also watched Into Darkness this weekend. I liked that movie as well. Basically, put something in space and I will enjoy it. Except of course Prometheus which I highly anticipated and then felt great disappointment. -David Kent Watson     more »
