Post Its on the locked doors of the Capitol -- think of them as colorful, handwritten recall petitions
Legend has it that Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses on the doors of the church at Wittenberg. We have the locked doors of the Wisconsin State Capitol and Post It Notes -- thousands of them.
Some are funny: "Dear Mr. Walker, Who hurt you so badly as a kid?"
Some are heartbreaking: "No Medicaid will KILL ME!"
Beautiful and poignant. Think of them as colorful, handwritten recall petitions.
When their constituents could not get into the Capitol, some Assembly Democrats set up offices outside on Wednesday. They literally climbed out of their first-floor office windows, set up some flags and furniture, and got to work. Shown listening: 42nd District Rep. Fred Clark.
