Gaylord Nelson was governor of the state where I grew up. With my family, I met him on the main street of my hometown of Amery, Wisconsin when I was around six years old and we got our picture taken with him. He was running for governor. I’d fallen out of a trailer and broken my arm, so I was sporting a spiffy plaster cast. He became governor. Then he ran for the U.S. Senate and won, serving 18 years representing Wisconsin. I wrote him a couple of letters asking questions through the years. He answered.
