State Street in Madison Wisconsin
A puzzling city scene

What happened here, that I stumbled across at noon in downtown Madison, Wisconsin yesterday? No, these are not my shoes. This is the scene I came across en route to lunch.

I discovered I was only a block away from Barack Obama, who was giving a speech at Monona Terrace to over 4,000 people. Darned if many of them didn’t crowd into the restaurant too.
