Another Dirty Air Alert Across Much Of Wisconsin

Tailpipes and smokestacks that churn out smog will keep plenty of people indoors for the next day. Happy weekend - - and remember that the Walker administration eliminated the early-warning "watches" for such conditions.

Imagine if weather forecasters eliminated storm watches, thus eliminating planning and preparation time, then gave you the first indication of trouble when the "warning" told you to take cover.
