I'm pretty sure this isn't the first that you've heard Obama, Huckabee sweep to Iowa victories. Keep one eye on MPR's Campaign 2008 coverage and check Polinaut for recaps.

You may have caught that former Wisconsin Gov. Lee Dreyfus, known for his red vest, died at 81. What you may not have seen is Dreyfus through the eyes of a Wisconsin resident.

Jim Muraco, an independent filmmaker from Milwaukee, sent a note about his own experience with Dreyfus,

News discussion topics for the 01/04/2008 weekend

Posted at 4:16 PM on January 4, 2008 by Julia Schrenkler

Don't be caught without a topic this weekend!

* Voices, Not Opposites, Attract (NPR) We all know someone with a voice that makes us quiver. So, spill.

* A DNA portrait reveals more than what you look like (MPR) You might not know much about DNA or art, but you'll know what you like about DNA art. Talk about science, art, and whether or not you'd send a DNA swab to a stranger. Speaking of privacy...

* Data Privacy in Minnesota (News Cut) Well that's a sobering list, Bob. You can talk about data privacy no matter where you live.

Share your own conversation-starters but lower your voice, to introduce yourself at art openings, or to buy time and maybe even get seconds from the absinthe-sample-server at a liquor store.
