The name of this blog came from a man whom I spoke to back in June. It was during the budget debate, when Walkerville was up. He called Madison (or perhaps Dane County in general) “Liberal Heaven.” My mom and I walked away and met some friends nearby, but what he said stuck in my mind.

I grabbed a sign that said “SHAME SHAME SHAME SHAME” on it, stacked on top of each other. I flipped it over and wrote on the back, “Welcome to Liberal Heaven.” I hesitated, going back and forth on whether or not I should give it to him. In the end, I didn’t, and I regret not doing it. But my mom and I went another way, and I never got the chance.
