No, that isn't a humorous reference to Susan Sarandon's appearance on Saturday. Later that afternoon, I had a moment so disorienting that I wondered for a moment if it was a hallucination brought on by too little sleep and too much caffeine. While marching around the Capitol, near North Hamilton Street, I heard CCR's "Fortunate Son" playing over the speakers at that corner of the Capitol. I looked around and saw -- I kid you not -- a group of college kids carrying a Students for a Democratic Society banner. It turns out that this is not the same organization that agitated against the Vietnam War. Lest you think they are out-of-state professional lefties, I believe this contingent was from UW-Milwaukee.
