Opinion Matters

With Gazette Opinion Editor Greg Peck
Greg Peck: Say something positive about Janesville
City Manager Mark Freitag wants us to be positive about Janesville. What would you say?
Greg Peck: Will you watch Super Bowl for football or commercials?
I don't much care for either team in Sunday's Super Bowl. So commercials might be the biggest entertainment—again.
Greg Peck: Will you spend $77 to watch Super Bowl on TV?
The bet here is that few Wisconsinites will spend anywhere near $77 per person to watch Sunday's big game.
