Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too. Kyle looks at things from the taxpayers' perspective in a creative, yet down to earth way, addressing them from a practical point of view.
UPDATE: This just in from National Review Online:
|"From Jim DeMint's office: We've just been alerted that despite House Democrats relenting on extending bans on offshore drilling and oil shale in the continuing resolution (CR) appropriations bill, Democrat Senate Leader Harry Reid has decided to sneak an extension of the oil shale ban through as Congress fights over the financial bailout."|
We reported yesterday that the announcement from Democrats in the House of Representatives that they would not seek to extend the moratorium on domestic drilling WAS NO INDICATION that the battle to "drill here and drill now" was over!
