Ended the show talking about how Wisconsin state politicians are falling over themselves to be responsible using $600 million in public money to update the Milwaukee Brewers stadium with zero public hearings.

    If I were a betting person, my bet would be on this development not taking place.
    If the city is so intent on doing right by the environment, they should have bought the building, tore it down and create beautiful green space.
    The one bug item the leaders of this city will never get is quality of life issues.
