“Remember the classic wooden benches in the lobby of the City-County Building? A grace note for the tired-of-foot taxpayer?
Gone down the memory hole. Victim of Madison’s dominant political culture, its subservience to the Cult of Victimhood. Madison’s dominant political culture cannot bring itself to evict the vagrants befouling the seat of local government, so it takes dishonest little half-measures, like removing the benches. So it goes at the juncture of State Street and Mifflin Street. The small tree-shaded urban oasis has been taken over by chronic drunks and layabouts.”
