         State Street Mall is Madison's showplace of fun shopping and politically correct activities like art sales and farmer's markets. State Street's heavy population of homeless, poor, and rejected people are quite visible. They panhandle. They play drums and guitars on the street. They lounge in the parks and take up all of the wooden benches placed there.
          Madison has a veneer of liberality, but the establishment community would rather that the State Street people didn't exist.
