What a difference 200 miles make!

I drove 200 miles north today, to the northern part of the state.  On the local news tonight, collective bargaining was not mentioned as a "right", and the story was buried halfway thru the broadcast, right after a report about a kayak trip (organized in memory of a child who died from brain cancer) that 70 attended.

Honestly, you'd think they were reporting about a different state than Madison.

I don't know if that says more about Madison journalism or the journalism up here.  I look forward to reading the Lakeland Times, tho.

(Re: Lakeland Times.  I'm embarrassed to admit that I've not considered looking it up online 'til just now, when I linked it.  Sheesh.)

  1. So true, but then, you don't even have to go that far. Camped and canoed at Wildcat Mtn. SP a few years ago and went to a local tavern near Ontario, WI on Friday night for drinks and dinner. You could have heard a pin drop when we walked in....and that's what, Vernon County?

    Have's a different world, but that's OK, too.
