What a difference two weeks makes. Two
weeks ago, I wrote about COVID-19, but a
lot of things were still going on. Since that
time, many restaurants and stores, all
educational institutions at every level, and
most retail stores have closed. Almost all
non-profits — and Madison has a zillion of
them — have closed. Isthmus — I still can’t
believe it — has gone dark until the COVID-
19 lock down is over. And now through
Governor Evers’ order, everything, but the
essentials have been ordered to close.

Fulfilling an Immigrant’s Dream
I saw someone raise the question indignantly why liquor stores
were exempted and I instantly knew he wasn’t from Wisconsin.
After all, Wisconsin is the brandy capital of the world. Evers would
have had a riot on his hands if he ordered liquor stores closed too.
Just about everyone regardless of race, color, gender, income and
religion partakes of alcohol from time to time
..

I have vowed to continue to publish The Capital City Hues because
people need positive stories and information from people they trust,
especially in times like now. Fortunately, we have been frugal —
not cheap — at The Hues over the past 14 years. After the initial
losses due to starting the paper up and then suffering the impact of
The Great Recession, we have always run a modest profit each
year.
