Twin attacks on full display this week against Wisconsin's environmental legacy through bills that deregulate mining, weaken water management and tear at 225 years of Wisconsin water reverence show that Walker cleverly waited to drop his environmental bombs until time passed, lobbyists did their work and his DNR budget got some editorial backing:
"Isn't as bad as some feared" is, frankly, now 'worse than imagined.'
