What water, wetland protection is all about
"A little fill here and there may seem to be nothing to become excited about. But one fill, though comparatively inconsequential, may lead to another, and another, and before long a great body may be eaten away until it may no longer exist. Our navigable waters are a precious natural heritage, once gone, they disappear forever," wrote the Wisconsin Supreme Court in its 1960 opinion resolving Hixon v. PSC and buttressing The Public Trust Doctrine, Article IX of the Wisconsin State Constitution.

James Rowen's Bio
James Rowen is an independent writer based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He worked as the senior Mayoral staffer in Madison and Milwaukee and for newspapers in both cities. This blog began on 2/2/ 2007.
From the Journal Sentinel:
"The turnout - about 40 people from various parts of Wisconsin and Illinois - may indicate growing support for the expansion of gun rights in the state, and in particular, legislation that could make it possible for people to carry concealed weapons."
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel never took note of as many as 40 people in front of the Waukesha library every Sunday noon for seven years and analyzed it as something that "...may indicate growing support for..." the ending of war in Iraq.
This odd collection of exhibitionists--many with holsters strapped on with 48-inch belts--looks like the vanguard of the delusional and the irretrievably alienated.
Hey Jim - seeing as how the war in Iraq hasn't ended, are those protestors still out there every Sunday?
