Recall Walker Countdown: Think of Them as Recall Petitions
I photographed this March 2, 2011 at the Wisconsin State Capitol. One of the most moving things about the protests last winter was the way that people used the locked doors of the Capitol as community bulletin boards to post their grievances on brightly colored Post It Notes -- thousands of them.
Some were funny: "Dear Mr. Walker, Who hurt you so badly as a kid?"
Some were heartbreaking: "No Medicaid will KILL ME!"
Beautiful, poignant and prescient. Think of them as recall votes.
