Author Studying Madison/Waukesha Contrast: Better Subject Is Milwaukee/Waukesha

The Cap Times interviews a German studying the contrasts between Dane (liberal/Democratic) and Waukesha (conservative/Republican) counties.

That's an interesting pairing, but the more instructive two-county comparison is Waukesha/Milwaukee, because that is where racial and income disparities are definitional, so there's an edgier context along with a border and historical import.
