“We share a deep love,” Tulsi says to a standing-room-only crowd of 200. She talks about love a lot in a way that might have provoked eye rolls pre-Trump but now just sounds appealingly weird.

That's exactly what wafts beneath my nose on Willy Street in the Williamson-Marquette neighborhood - outside of the Willy Street Co-op, located about a mile and a half east of the Capitol.

A stroll along Willy Street, with its mix of comic books, vegan food, old and new bakeries, thrift shopping, cold-pressed juices and a float therapy center, reveals a side of Madison well worth exploring. It has the feel - and smell - I've come to expect from a liberal … [Read more...] about You’re going where? Madison, Wisconsin.
