With the presidents visit to Madison today, you can see how UW Madison students lose in their education for the rally.
I was informed that you were discussing this topic yesterday on air, I would have loved to have been able to call in but unfortunately I was busy working. I grew up in the Milwaukee area listening to you and now I am in my 7th, and final, semester at Madison. A few notes from someone in the thick of it.
-The amount of classes canceled today for me adds up to $150 in instructional time I am missing and won’t get back. It feels as if I have just made a generous donation to the Obama campaign, against my will.
-The total disruption of campus and the absurdity of security requirements is unacceptable. Less than a half hour ago I was accosted by a police officer on my way home from a midterm exam for walking on the wrong side of the street with a backpack. (I’d like to point out that at the time I was 3 blocks away from the backside of Bascom Hill) Evidently, my education is far less important than a campaign stop.
