Even Before New State $$ Cut, WI Towns Defaulting To Gravel Roads

Oh, this unwanted bit of dirty Depression-era nostalgia will bring industry and entrepreneurs to Wisconsin:

What CEO wouldn't want to move their business to a state with second-rate broadband, crowded schools and gravel roads, where they can relax by shooting woodchucks?

For years, Hollywood script writers would select Wisconsin as a story locale when they wanted emphasize that the characters were hicks. I used to resent this, but now I realize it was a prophesy of sorts.
