Utopia in Racine
If I had visited Racine for the first time last night, I would have concluded that Racinians are the happiest people on earth. I went to a concert on Monument Square. I was amazed by what I saw. The square was packed with people of all ages. The weather was perfect. The band, The Britins, played Beatles songs. Everyone was smiling. Those not dancing were swaying to the music. There was not a police officer or politician in sight. After the concert, I witnessed some scruffy looking teens pick up the garbage. I overheard one of them say something like "I don't have to get paid for everything I do." It was a special night in Racine.
