Now let's not get into a political discussion (we get enough politics on TV), but here is the presidential parade rolling through southwestern Wisconsin. They had a squad car at every road that intersected the main highway, helicopters everywhere, and no way in or out of where you were for 45 minutes before he finally arrived. He is in the second bus in the white shirt.

It was a big deal for the kids and our small town. It was also a huge issue for debate over who was going to pay for all the overtime for all those officers and other people needed to keep the president safe. In the large town north of us, the bill was like $20,000 and the democratic party of the town was going to forward the bill to the White House.

There is a wonderful metaphor in your second photo, Wisconsin Girl...or perhaps it could be called a "tie in".

There is a small store entitled the Back Fence.

In small town USA, often the news is conveyed over the "back fence", be it metaphorical or actual.

Nice
