Soon Librarians and the Rest of Us Thugs Will Have Our Say
Back last winter and spring, when many tens of thousands of Wisconsin people were coming to the Capitol to protest Scott Walker's union-busting budget "reform" bill, Walker's minions complained about the "union thugs" taking over the Capitol. I took this photo on March 5, 201 on the Capitol Square, and it's become one of my most-viewed photos on Flickr. Does she look like a thug to you? Yeah, me too. If she's a thug, sign me up. Last winter we protested with our feet. In just nine days, we'll be able to protest with our signatures on recall petitions.
