Let’s Recombobulate: Send in your questions for our reader mailbag!

In these discombobulating times, let’s recombobulate together.

The Recombobulation Area is a weekly opinion column by veteran Milwaukee journalist Dan Shafer. Learn more about it here.

So, there’s a lot happening right now. I mean a lot. Between the election that’s less than two weeks from the finish line, Wisconsin’s increasingly alarming coronavirus outbreak, bombshell Foxconn news revealing an outright disaster in Mount Pleasant, whatever Ron Johnson is doing at any given moment to embarrass the state, we could go on and on — it's all pretty discombobulating.

But that’s why The Recombobulation Area is here. As this avalanche of news continues to fall, let’s recombobulate together. 

Send in a question — any question! — and the best, most interesting (and possibly most ridiculous) ones will get answered in this week’s column. 

I’ll be accepting questions from now up until the end of tomorrow’s presidential debate. You can ask your question three ways:

  1. Email your question to therecombobulationarea@gmail.com

  2. Tweet your question to me at @DanRShafer (best to reply to the tweet below)

  3. Leave your question in a comment on this very post

If you find us through Facebook or Instagram, we’ll also accept questions from there, but it will be easier to reach us through email, Twitter or comments. 

We look forward to hearing from you.
