Here’s the capitol building in Madison; you turn a corner and suddenly it’s all, whoa, there’s a big-ass dome in my face. It’s very pretty. Madison, at least the parts that I’ve seen, are also very pretty, although if you go down to the shoreline, prepare to be accosted by wave after wave of gnats, who I strongly suspect would eat you down to the grommets if they could. I’m just saying. Aside from that I can see why many believe it’s one of the most livable cities in the US.
