Meade,
Do you know who else was a rabble rouser and was convicted?

JESUS!

HITLER!

I have raised about half the money needed for the bronze statue of Jeremy Ryan on his Segway. It will be about eight feet tall and I hope will be placed on the Capitol concourse so that you see it when driving up W. Washington. It will be a nice commemoration of the capital protests. I am just glad that Jeremy might live long enough to see it.

Do other people have any ideas of what kind of fundraisers to have to raise the rest of the funds?

The bronze market is at a low right now. I would guess 1.2 million would finish the job including artist fees.

Meade, can your rich Amazon huckin' sugar momma float the rest?

Meade, a doofus like you probably does not understand how these big arts campaigns work. I don't actually have a half million dollars stuffed in my desk bottom drawer. I DO have close to $700,000 in pledges.

Segway Jeremy Ryan is a beloved figure in Wisconsin. Actually he is known and respected around the world. I saw a photo in the New York Times a few days ago that was taken at some protest in some third world dirt hole. When I looked very close I saw someone standing on a Segway.

Jeremy Ryan has inspired millions. That is why we need to get this monument erected.

So you just need a dollar from each inspired entity? Okay, you have my pledge.

Btw, are you sure about the bronze market? I just looked up the spot price and seems to be up quite a bit from 2 years ago when the Wisconsin protests began. Exactly how much bronze are you going to need for this big arts project of yours?

Thank you Meade for doing your little part and making a pledge to this inspiring endeavor. Maybe your mom Mrs. Althouse would be willing to host an online-athon?

Concerning the price of bronze, I was speaking about a much broader time period. While the price has maybe spiked recently, it is at a historic low. This is especially true in comparison to the price during much of the Bronze Age. Though the price did drop a great deal during the collapse of 1971-1973 BC.

Maybe for a statue fundraiser, Swimming can take a page out of Marco Rubio's playbook. Something like... donate $25 or more today and he'll send you an official piece of Segway Jeremy Ryan's left lung, preserved in amber.

Remember: By law, the maximum amount an individual may contribute is $5,000 per calendar year. But if you want to donate more, why let a silly trivial thing like the law stop you. In the inspirational spirit of Jeremy -- who has inspired millions -- LET IT ROLL!

You might need more money for the statue. In order to pass along the actions of Jeremy for generations to come, may I offer a couple of features...

1. Every hour, on the hour, a very loud and annoying noise will come from a speaker place by his mouth.

2. Cigarette smoke comes out of his mouth 20 times a day

3. Once every 6 months, the statue falls over and the only way you can get it back up is to donate money

I would love to donate to the bronze statue fund. Would you take actual bronze to melt down and donate to the bronze pool that will be used to make the statue?
