You may be wondering what has happened with this site.  We're at the moment letting it run more or less on autopilot.  I'm devoting a lot more time to Uppity Wisconsin, and to other work and political projects, and the immediacy of changes in Madison seems to have slowed down.

It seems like this started forever ago, but it was actually just back in February.  After all the protests, and running around with clipboards, and pots and pots of coffee, it's election day.  Today is the day that Wisconsin tries to take back democracy.

You can follow along on the updates at our sister blog, Uppity Wisconsin.  As to this web site, we're not really certain where it's going - more soon.

The other day I realized I had a bunch of pictures from Madison during the first days of the protests in February. I never actually did much with these, so I thought I'd put them up here as a slideshow.
