Cal Ripken Was Right, and Madison Proves It

By: Saturday February 19, 2011 9:30 am

When Cal Ripken, Jr. was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame, he told the crowds that he was just doing his job, the way so many other ordinary folks do, like teachers, police officers, mothers, fathers, business owners, and others. He said “You all may not receive the accolades that I have throughout my career, so I’d like to take the time out to salute all of you for showing up, working hard and making the world a better place.”

Sounds like what’s happening in Madison to me.
