Sunday Scenes in Madison
As Ronald Reagan might have said, "It's morning in Madison." One sure sign of the dead of winter is the annual appearance of ice shanties on the lake. It took awhile this year, but they're finally out there. It seems like there only three or four weeks a year that I can't watch fishermen right outside my windows.
Something new this winter in Madison are the Capitol Square Sprints. Instead of being populated with farmers, legislators and hippies, Madison's Capitol Square was filled with snow and cross country ski racers.
It wasn't anywhere near as cool as I thought it'd be. They should have ditched the snow fence, put up a beer tent and given out free cowbells. Then we would have had an event! Actually, that sounds like a great idea for Bush's Inauguration too. There are damn few events that wouldn't be improved by a beer garden.
