Wilco to be honorary Madisonians?

wilco Looks like the city of Madison doesn't want to play second fiddle to Duluth. After Jeff Tweedy of Wilco called out Madison's mayor for not giving Wilco the key to the city at Overture Hall Saturday night, Mayor Dave wrote a blog about it. And I was amused to read in Kristin Czubowski's blog for the Capital Times that Mayor Dave has introduced a resolution to make the band's members honorary Madisonians. Who said public officials don't have senses of humor? Check out the resolution. It's pretty funny. "Title: Declaring the band Wilco and its members Jeff Tweedy, John Stirratt, Glenn Kotche, Mikael Jorgensen, Nels Cline, and Pat Sansone, honorary citizens of the great City of Madison, Wisconsin. Body: WHEREAS, Wilco has visited Madison and played concerts here at least thirteen times since 1995 (including a show at Club DeWash in February of 1995); and, WHEREAS, Jeff Tweedy says of Madison: 'We really like it here'; and, WHEREAS, Wisconsinites generally have a love/hate relationship with all things from Illinois but the sold-out show at the Overture Center on February 21, 2010  had only love for this band from Chicago; and, WHEREAS, at least one member of the Common Council attended the show and can attest to its excellence; and, WHEREAS, The Isthmus called Wilco 'America's shiniest rock object'; and, WHEREAS, Duluth, MN may be cool, but we would not want it said that either that fine city or its mayor are cooler than Madison and our mayor (even if Mayor Dave is not sure who Jeff Tweedy is); and, WHEREAS, the City of Madison looks forward to many future visits by Wilco; and, WHEREAS, It is generally true that late is better than never, NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Common Council and Mayor declare the band Wilco and its members, Jeff Tweedy, John Stirratt, Glenn Kotche, Mikael Jorgensen, Nels Cline, and Pat Sansone, honorary citizens of the great City of Madison, Wisconsin." The City Council could act on the resolution at its March 2nd meeting. Prepare for animated debate.
