The Capital Times has a rich, deep history in Madison, Wisconsin, but what is most important is what we are today.

When I joined the staff at The Capital Times back in June of 1962, I was assigned to a desk directly across from Elliott Maraniss.

Beginning in 1973 in his first term as mayor, Paul Soglin has been known as a competent go-getter who has big ideas and is able to implement them. He may have lost last week's election, but his contributions to Madison will never be lost.

That Mr. Evjue was prescient in warning about a dictatorship of wealth was exemplified earlier this month when the Seattle, Washington, city council — bowing to pressure from Amazon.com and other corporate giants —voted to repeal a "head tax" it had enacted a few weeks earlier to raise money to help the homeless and build affordable housing in the city.

For 100 years, since it was first published Dec. 13, 1917, William T. Evjue's Capital Times has been hammering the wealthy and powerful, striking blows for justice and for peace. We will never tire of fighting for the little guys.
