Line for President Obama's UW-Madison appearance
The line stretched about a mile from Bascom Hall, across Observatory Hill, and out to the UW Natatorium, and although police reported 30,000 were admitted into the Bascom Hill site, not everyone was able to get in.
Isthmus used social media to plot the line on Google Maps, which I could get on my iPhone (no thanks to Apple but thanks to the GoogleMaps website). We bicycled over to see the line and go for a ride along the lake (the part that wasn't blocked off). But we returned home to watch on TV. Standing for five hours or so is just not my cup of tea.
