Barrett Water-Based Jobs Plan Gets Wall Street Journal Attention

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett's plan to use discounted Lake Michigan water as a business lure gets a nice ride in The Wall Street Journal, here.

I wonder hos long it will take Scott Walker to take credit for the concept - - though the plan presents Walker with some difficulty, as his suburban Waukesha GOP base prefers water piped in from Lake Michigan at the lowest rate possible to promote growth away from Milwaukee and not in the City, per se.

Regular readers of this blog would have seen plaudits for the plan a month ago, fyi.

Wow James linking a WSJ article, guess every squirrel will find a nut he likes sooner or later.

Who is Joe Barrett btw, that isn't perchance Tom's brother is it?
