Chickens in Milwaukee

Tomorrow morning will be an important one for the Milwaukee Common Council Public Safety Committee. 


   No they are not discussing the cities crime statistics.  They are not debating methods for infiltrating Brew City's dangerous and destructive street gangs.  The murder rate?  Nah, that's not on the agenda.  How to keep us all safer?  Right!


   Chickens.  That's right, chickens.  Up for debate is whether or not Milwaukeeans should be allowed to raise chickens in the city.  The measure being proposed by Aldermen Kovac, Zielinski, and Witkowiak would allow city residents to have up to four chickens in their yard.  I'm just glad that we have apparently taken care of all of the pressing problems.  It sure is a sigh of relief to know that everything else has been dealt with and now we can focus on the things that really matter.


  We're talking chickens!  Give me a break!
