As I said a couple of years ago when the capitol building in Madison was being occupied by people incensed by the depredations being mounted against democracy by the Republican Party there, driven by Tea Party ideology and Koch Brothers money, I was never more proud to be a graduate of the University of Wisconsin at Madison. (See Wisconsin is About Climate and Energy Too.) I still am proud.
Our alumni magazine, “On Wisconsin,” has A Newer World on its Bookshelf: Spring 2013. I was a theatre major way back when, and I was in Madison after the furor of the antiwar demonstrations had died, but I still imbibed the spirit of that great town which is a locus of progressive politics, and houses the state government as well as one of the world’s leading universities.
