Charlie Sykes: Sykes Writes

Galactically Stupid

  • Print

Behold the brilliance of Mayor Tom Barrett. The water deal that was Milwaukee's for the taking has been snapped up by Oak Creek. Forty years; $183 million. Savvy listener puts this all in context:

I hope the residents of Milwaukee fully appreciate how galactically stupid their leadership is in the light of the announcement of the water deal between Waukesha and Oak Creek. Think Milwaukee could have used those hundreds of million in revenue? But no! They wanted to be belligerent and tie any agreement to coercive land use and social engineering preconditions. So now they are left with zero, zip, nada, bupkus.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Mayor Barrett and Your Milwaukee Common council!!!!! (I’d call them clowns, but that would be an insult to clowns).


And how does the MJS do a story on this and not get a quote from Barrett or anyone on the MKE common council who screwed the pooch for their city?

Sloppy/lazy or both?
