Its academic AND Marxist - what's not to like?

I like it.
I find this to be healthy playful cynicism, considering...

...in an October 17, 2004, The New York Times Magazine article by writer Ron Suskind, quoting an unnamed aide to George W. Bush (later attributed to Karl Rove:
The aide said that guys like me were "in what we call the reality-based community," which he defined as people who "believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality." ... "That's not the way the world really works anymore," he continued. "We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors…and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do."

I suggest:

"Madison: Ironically named after the guy who drafted the Constitution."

What's ironic about that?

Still hoping D-Man will explain what's ironic about our connection to Little Jemmy Madison.

Madison City Council refuses '77 Square Miles Surrounded by Reality' as motto

As least the plastic pink flamingo is still our official bird.

Madison: Make sure to tattoo your rehab clinic's phone number on your arm so you don't forget it
