Max Armstrong talks about Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's comments. (audio)

We aren't sure Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker worries too much about criticism. But he's being criticized for his comments comparing teachers with football players. Football players and most workers are paid based on performance. Teachers union is critical of comments.

Indiana State Fair opening day is on his schedule. Aug. 5 will be full day there for Max. It's economic shot in the arm for the region in which fairs are held. $84 million to $86 million a year.

Fair time means racing pigs season. 

Consultation with Good Book might be in order.
