    I am a retired teacher from Wisconsin.  You folks are an inspiration.  The teachers of Wisconsin need to go back to school and take some lessons from you.  When Scott Walker passed Act 10 every public worker in this state should have picked up a sign and hit the streets.  You have great leadership that stood up to the "Mouth"!  I hope that the Wisconsin teachers and public employees get some guts like we had in the old days.

      Many of the Chicago strike activists had made the trip to Madison when you needed us and we sure loved seeing folks from the Badger State come and join our effort. I met some fine people from Wisconsin who helped out at the Strike HQ.

      The Wisconsin-based Overpass Light Brigade came down and did some wonderful work with the electronic signs. I held up the letter "S" on the overpass of I-290 going into Downtown.
