My old dorm at UW-Madison can't talk, so I will dare to speak on its behalf. I had written about this building in the Trinitonian and then my friend, Paula Apfelbach, at the UW Alumni Association asked if I could re-work it for the On Wisconsin magazine. My old Ogg buddy Don Schutt (aka: Muff) sent me a link to watch the tortuous demolition live as the old hall comes down one brick at a time. In March I got to see the new building - across the street - during a reunion with my old Ogg RA (House Fellow) buddies. As a side-note, we were met with grumblings of "old people" as we entered one of our favorite old night spots. We are a lot like Ogg I guess. And we don't mind.
