This is on the first overpass on the east side of the St. Croix over 94. We were facing west during Thursday's afternoon drive time to catch the eye of Wisconsin residents commuting home from the Cities. It was a beautiful spot to blog the freeway with a sweeping view of the St. Croix Valley and beyond. There were many honks of support and waves from the freeway below and even some support voiced from motorists passing behind us on the overpass. The sun-drenched, translucent shower curtain must have allowed them to read the sign backwards. It was a heavily traveled overpass and if we use this spot again we should have a sign facing backwards, as well.
The only blemish on the day was a half full water bottle, silently hurled at us from a passing car. It missed us both, bounced of the fence and landed on the road. I tried to get a picture of the car but wasn't fast enough with the camera. They hate our freedom. :)

Cavlan For U.S. Senate...The Gay Marriage Candidate
Under single payer, you go to the doctor, get treated and you don't get a bill. That sounds free to me. Because the costs of healthcare are greatly reduced by eliminating the health insurers, the cost of government paid healthcare does not present a burden to tax payers and EVERYONE gets healthcare, as opposed to the current system where 50 million people go without. Single payer is the way healthcare is done in every developed, civilized country in the world. It is the only humane and fair way to deliver healthcare.
Fortunately, Bob didn't need a doctor after he took an accidental hit from a passing cyclist this time out. The banner pole bent right around his shoulder but he wasn't hurt and the cyclist apologized. We were just in a bad position.

They Legislate Hate In Our State
Gay Marriage Threatens Nothing
We were standing outside the Minnesota Senate chambers on March 27, 2006, protesting the introduction of an anti-gay marriage constitutional amendent. I remember this demonstration well because there were just two of us surrounded by 53 homo-hating fascists with their moronic signs. Still, even though we were so grossly outnumbered by proponents, we got this prominent shot in the newspaper. That's Bob Halfhill on the left, me on the right. The banner is slightly obscured by the cordon leading to the stairs.
