Inside Madison Stuff

I am so voting for Judy Compton if she decides to run for Mayor of Madison. I can not adequately recreate the impeccable logic with which she demonstrates to the Madison City Council, how the proposal to create “Neighborhood Conservation Districts” opens the door for city politicians to define the specific area of Madison to become the red light district. Allowing majority political will to supersede individual property rights under the guise of preserving architectural aesthetics is a bad, bad, bad idea.

Judy demurs she is too old to grab the pom-poms and do the "I told you so dance". Well I have been to Wisconsin roadhouse polka band nights and ain’t nobody to old to sashay across a hardwood floor, Ms. Alderperson. Once you establish architect police authority, the municipal house paint and vinyl siding approval sub-committee is not far behind.
