Scooping the Northwestern---Scooping Gannett

Fighting Bob Fest was Saturday at the Sauk County Fairgrounds. Bernie Sanders (soon to be) a Senator from Vermont spoke to the crowd. Many others spoke including Jim Hightower, Gwen Moore, Tammy Baldwin, etc.

I estimate the crowd at 5,500. (Using the Oshkosh Air Show type estimation, i.e. -patrons-X-number of speakers, the crowd estimate could easily be 40,000!)

It was, put simply, the largest political event in Wisconsin in 2005. It dwarfs the Democratic, Republican, and Green Party get-togethers.

A Green Party speaker flew in from San Francisco and was warmly received by what is possibly the largest audience a Green Party speaker has ever seen in this state. The event had many progressive Democrats on the podium too. It was a diverse and friendly crowd. For more go here: http://www.fightingbobfest.com

One visitor to the Fest was Ben Masel. Ben has announced that he will be running for U.S. Senator from Wisconsin against Mr. Kohl. For more, and photographs, go here:

Best bumper sticker seen Saturday: "VIETNAM IS ARABIC FOR IRAQ"
Best T-shirt: "THE FLOGGINGS WILL CONTINUE UNTIL MORALE IMPROVES"

Last Friday the war vigil at the sundial had some interesting twists.

Mr. Metz, who used to run the Northwestern, greeted the protesters with half-a-peace-sign (the bird). Remember that the next time someone howls about the 'liberal media'.

A giggling young lady riding 'shotgun' in a passing car flashed the assembled protesters.

I'm still trying to decide who is the biggest boob.

The Sunday parade honoring the troops had a dismal turnout. I did my part. I was there. Where were you?
