When I read this story about the slowdown in frac sand mining in Minnesota and Wisconsin, and wondered who's keeping an eye out for spills, dust and erosion, this quote was not a confidence builder:
"Milwaukee and its suburbs are one of the most segregated areas in the nation, and the inner city has been devastated by the effects of lost manufacturing jobs and high rates of unemployment and incarceration…
"[GOP WI Gov. Scott] Walker, a longtime former resident of Wauwatosa, has related better to the conservative suburbs of Milwaukee than to its liberal urban core, first as county executive and then as governor."
