You have to be kidding.
A Madison politician, Rep. Scott Allen of Waukesha, wants to change the slogan on Wisconsin license plates, "America's Dairyland." He has gotten on the bandwagon after Kurt Bauer, executive director of Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce, made the suggestion.
Allen has time to think this is a must-do issue — too much time on his hands. Was it the long title Bauer has or the idea of making this change listening only from certain people? This is the type of thinking we are paying for.
I don’t have one of those important titles. How about spending time on an idea like fixing Wisconsin roads and bridges without borrowing money? Focus on the real issues.
