Do You Hear Wisconsin Sing?

It's been a good week for fans of the bombastic '80s musical Les Misérables. First, Anne Hathaway parodied "On My Own" (a.k.a.,the awkward 13-year-old's Song of Big Feelings) at this Sunday's Oscars. Thatsame day, inside Madison, Wisconsin's Capitol building, a group of protestersrallied the troops with a version of the show's big 11 th -hournumber, "Do You Hear the People Sing." Now you have to take these guysseriously, Scott Walker!
