Alcohol, WI Snowmobilers, And The More Things Change...

When I see a story like this about Wisconsin's ubiquitous, harmful embrace of alcohol...

Alcohol is main factor in Wisconsin's rise in snowmobile fatalities
I remember writing a series for The Milwaukee Journal more than 27 years ago that among the consequences of Wisconsin's drinking culture was all of Wisconsin's snowmobile fatalities in a recent year had been alcohol-related. (See the chart by right clicking to on page 10 after the jump).

The series was keyed to the drowning death of two teenagers in a downtown river.

Sound familiar
