Various information

I know that some of you are probably tired of the political stuff.  I know I'm stressed and tired of it.  It is hard for me to understand why someone or a group of someones would so completely ignore what is right and what a huge number of people want for their own state... but that is neither here nor there...

I hope that the Republicans and Walker see sense and stop tearing down Wisconsin.  If not I hope they are prepared to lose their jobs.  There is a rally tomorrow in Madison.  If you can, please go - voice your opinion - whatever it is. 

I drove around the capitol square today.  People crowded the sidewalks and near the building.  I saw a lot of people - no thugs, no violence, no disorderly conduct.  I saw people gathering to voice their opinions.  It made me proud.  Now if only there was someone there to listen.
