Protester Bleg: If you'll pardon another pro-labor post...

...I now have information on how to quickly and easily get donations of essential food and personal hygiene supplies to the protesters in Madison. If you'd like details, drop me a line.

Oh, what the hell: I don't know why I'm being so reticent. It's my blog, after all. Here it is: Madison's Willy St. Co-op is taking gift card orders over the phone. They collect them during the day, then every morning call the protesters, ask what they need (labor can't live on pizza alone!), and use the gift cards to buy it. You can call the co-op at: (608) 251-6776.

Thanks.

Thanks, FT. Ian's in particular has apparently been on this from the beginning, and they're great. But after a week of pizza...

It's really good to be able to read your blog posts since it provides an insider's view of what's up. I have rely on the news and/or blog posts to find out what's up.

I'm a graduate student in the Lit Studies department at UW-Madison (and a member of TAA) and I've been following your blog for a while, so, I just wanted to tell you how incredibly happy it made me to see your support!

Thank you! On Wisconsin!
