Miscellaneous musings from the perspective of a lefty (both senses) atheist with a warped sense of humor.

I am a geek, but I do have some redeeming social skills. I love other people's dogs, cats, and kids. Snow sucks, but I'm willing to put up with it just to live in Madison.

UW-Madison Day at the State Capitol

Do you support higher education in general, the University of Wisconsin System more particularly, and especially its flagship institution, UW-Madison? Then you might well want to express that attitude to your state senator and assembly representative. The Wisconsin Alumni Association is sponsoring UW-Madison Day at the State Capitol on Wed. April 11 from noon to 5:30 PM. You can register for the event by clicking here.

As that web page notes, "We’ll give you everything you need to be an effective advocate. Never spoken to your legislator? Don’t worry: you’ll always be with other alumni, and those who would like to brush up on their communication skills can attend our session on the basics of speaking with legislators.” That training session will occur at 11 AM at the Park Hotel, 22 S. Carroll St., right across from the Capitol.

"Human history becomes more and more a race between education and catastrophe."
— Herbert George Wells (1866-1946), British science-fiction writer
