Join Hightower at the Sauk County Fairgrounds for the Third Annual 
Fighting Bob Fest. Fighting Bob Fest is an annual Chautauqua featuring 
progressive speakers, networking opportunities, and entertainment, 
carrying on the tradition of Robert "Fighting Bob" La Follette by 
providing a forum for progressive ideas on issues facing Wisconsin and 
the nation. Hightower is scheduled to speak in the early evening, 
although the exact time is loose. Saulk County Fairgrounds is located on 
Washington Ave. (at 4th St.). Admission is free, although a $10 donation 
is suggested to cover the costs of putting on the event. For more 
information, call (608) 256-1003 or visit www.fightingbobfest.org.


tvoivozhd---if I was in good enough shape to survive the trip, I'd go to 
Baraboo.  Bob LaFollette II nd was my Russian Language classmate and 
very first business partner after graduating from College. Not for long, 
he took off for Anchorage and summers alone with bears and moose seven 
or eight hundred miles from any civilization---flown in and out by 
floatplane.  He could afford it, Phil La Follette among others, 
represented the Hazeltine Corporation which held almost all radio 
patents.  Bob IInd is certainly dead now, but was a very good friend 
whose memory was revived by Jim Hightower.
