One voter observed "It's a bunch of small-town people who make Madison a big town." In this category dominated by first names, you get to see the small town underneath the city. Is there any doubt who we mean when we say "Dave" or "Brenda" or "Tory"? On the other hand, "early morning guy at Lazy Jane's," you need better PR.
