Seems like a lot of pancreatic cancer lately. I know that Jobs had a different kind of pancreatic cancer, but there have been others.
You still see the “Don’t blame me, I voted for Ed” bumper stickers around...but I DO blame those folks, they split the vote and elected Doyle over McCallum for governor.
Prayers for the family.
I knew Ed and he was a good man.
Yes he was. My wife works in Tomah and we’ve visited the Tee Pee (his supper club) a few times.
Doyle was the worst!
Everytime I drive over horrible roads, I remember how he raided the transportation fund, twice.
And his last “budget”! OMG.
Here is Ed, campaigning last year, in Trempealeau County. RIP and prayers to his family.
