I was in Madison, Wisconsin with some friends this weekend. And it was beautiful. I'd never spent time up there but it was wonderful to get out of Chicago a bit and to experience a different city.
Madison was simply fascinating. It's like middle America meets college town meets cultural diversity. Fascinating, really. While we were there, we walked through two separate protests: one against the governor of Wisconsin (who has done away with unions) and one in support of Tibetan freedom.
What intrigued me most was the similarity in the colors that permeated the two protests.
