The riveting political drama that has unfolded in Madison, WI, over the last few days has drawn the attention of the nation and the world. However, much of the national media doesn’t appear up to the challenge of covering it accurately.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
