Past Words of the Day

Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis or IUPUI, the acronym that inspired the not-so-flattering nickname.

An infamous legal trial that took place in Phoenix in the 1960s, a complicated fiasco involving an inheritance and "scientific proof" for the existence of a human soul.

A nickname for Los Angeles.

Word sometimes used at the end of a Milwaukeean's sentence, often when requesting something. EXAMPLES: "Come over here once" or "Let me see that once".

Sarah Palin was the Wasilla mayor from 1996 to 2002. She was elected governor of Alaska in 2006 and has been wildly popular in her first term with about an 85% approval rating. She was recently selected by John McCain as his Vice-Presidential candidate in the 2008 election. She has since energized the conservative base, as Palin is both fiscally and socially conservative. The other side, however, has pointed out Palin's lack of experience--especially in foreign policy--as well as several questionable moves as mayor of Wasilla and governor of Alaska. Included in those alleged scandals are "Troopergate", in which Palin is accused of wrongly fire the Alaska head of safety, as well as a controversial butting of heads with the Wasilla librarian over book-banning policy. Palin claims no wrongdoing in both cases.

Palin is a native of Idaho, but has lived the majority of her life in Alaska.
