It is called Madtown for a reason.

Wow what a truly hectic time it has been around Madison the last few days.  Everything is gearing up in a positive way for the democracy convention.  Also there are just so many rallies, benefits, meetings to attend.  It is going to be a very long week ahead that is for sure.  Even had to make a quick road trip out of state here very recently, lots of exciting things are in the works.
Hate to report but we barely had a hundred people at the solidarity sing along today, which is fine though really because it is a windy, rainy day here.  Plus everyone is preparing for all the other events.  Including a motorcycle/scooter/moped rally I helped organize for this Friday to help keep the momentum going in a fun way for everyone.  That is what it is all about right now, carrying on our momentum straight into the recall of governor Walker which will be coming here quite soon.
The excitement is definitely in the air, as well as some dissent from the good citizens of Wisconsin who just starting taking a sizable hit to their paychecks here recently.  And that comes on top of other cuts and measures they have already had to deal with.  Lots of people not happy with Scotty Walker but talk about stating the obvious.  I have to run now, just received word there may be some form of protest regarding our budgetary genius Mr. Paul Ryan.  Off to Janesville I believe, sorry this keeps getting cut short, may be able to return and finish Government and Legislation tonight.  Solidarity.

Yes indeed! Gearing up for the recall! Will be at the rally on thursday! November will be here before we know it! It's been a long time coming, and we are all getting restless. With the students coming back into town the energy will start to build! Can't wait....
Good luck in Janesville....:)
