U-S Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner is demanding answers as to how the A-T-F botched an undercover operation in Milwaukee, while the supervisor in charge remained undisciplined. Sensenbrenner, a Republican, is one of four congressmen who wrote A-T-F director B-Todd Jones on Friday for an explanation into Operation Fearless. According to the Journal Sentinel, weapons were stolen from an agent and four people were wrongfully arrested... while the alleged felons walked. The supervisor in question is Bernard Zapor, who was reassigned to the Phoenix Field Division. That office is blamed for the botched "Operation Fast and Furious", where thousands of high-powered assault rifles were given to criminals.

When it comes to producing medical school graduates who go into family practice, the University of Wisconsin ranks towards the top. According to a report from the American Academy of Family Physicians shows over a three-year period, one in six U-W medical grads – roughly 16-percent -  entered family practice. That's good enough for a ninth-place ranking among other medical schools across the country. Experts say the latest ranking is proof that the state's effort to expand family practice doctors, with the help of state and federal programs, is working.
