    Re: Your new Los Angeles Vikings

    Indeed. The tax revenue payoff for the state based on past reports appears compelling. But it will give small govt proponents something to bring up going forward.

    So often politics can be a disaster. Yet whether your for this outcome or not...IMO here's an example where two sides got together and pounded it out with an appropriate result. We've given the Vikes something to work with...but appear to have put in the costs about as low as we can go without blowing the deal. We can never know for sure...but it appears the political system worked pretty well when all is said and done.

      Wait... those are the places in Wisconsin that people don't think are horrible?

        If I have to be in WI, i'd prefer a town/city near the borders like LaCrosse or Milwaukee. So I can leave quickly back to civilization!

          For the record, as much as I hate that effing state, Milwaukee isn't such a bad place. It's hard to go wrong with German food and German beer, and I had a good time at the '06 F4 out there (when I wasn't badly hungover).

            These guys and gals need to be voted out. At worst I expect the reasonable house bill to be passed. These guys just gave the Vikes the $100 million right back. I expected better from no tax increase Republicans. The Senate bill is a disaster.

              I mildly support the stadium.

              But was surprised to see the senate bill come back significantly lighter than the house bill.

                Chippewa Falls is a nice little stop and fairly close to the Minnesota border...with a tour of Jake's brewery a good way to spend some time. Also a number of vineyards with wine shops, small cheese factories with shops that sell directly to the public in western Wisconsin. Good cheese.

                        What's wrong with kraut and sausage?!?!

                          Absolutely nothing. But I know many that don't like it, and so they claim they don't like German food. Morans.

                            Spatzle and weiner schnitzel are awesome.
                            Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

                              How many types of German food have you tried?

                                Rouladen. Sauerbraten. Potato pancakes with applesauce. My great-grandmother's streudel. German style potato salad (by far superior to any other potato salad in life). An overabundance of great ways to eat pork. Pickled herring. Holy ****, I'm hungry right now.
