Motivated by the current (2011) political climate in Wisconsin it seems reasonable to devote some time and effort to comment on issues and some of the hyperbola. So we in the public should do what we can to help focus "journalists" on delineating real facts versus spin. If you accept the spin you do not understand the policy implications.
Walkerville Noon Rally - some middle images - 6/6/11
Walkerville (Madison - Capitol) : Arrived late and unfortunately had to leave early... these are images from part of the march from State and then to the M&I building and then around the square back to State. Firefighters were leading march with bagpipes playing. Some from the rally then went to the Capitol and it seems some are being arrested(?) and detained in the basement ... reasons unkown? Some videos later - depends on quality?
