Vandal Places White Supremacy Stickers in MKE Pedestrian Tunnel

“Reject White Guilt” read two of the small stickers affixed to the wood structure designed to shelter pedestrians from the adjacent BMO Tower construction site. “Import the third world become the third world,” said another. The stickers come from an online, anonymously-run group known as the Hundred Handers that sends the stickers to its members.

Vindicated

Winning the 2020 Democratic National Convention is a coup for Milwaukee, Mayor Tom Barrett and a host of allies.
And for a downtown river revival rooted in former Mayor John Norquist’s New Urbanism which correctly predicted that people wanted to live and work near water and to get where they needed to go on a bike, by rail, or on their own two feet.

Via The Political Environment: Democrats’ 2020 convention will make Milwaukee glow.

A report released today recommends that the Domes(officially called the Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory) be demolished and replaced with a new horticultural conservatory that would be paired with a new Milwaukee Public Museum in Mitchell Park on Milwaukee’s South Side.

The report, commissioned by the MPM-Domes Joint Task Force and prepared by Washington, D.C.-based Gallagher & Associates Museum Services, says combining the two institutions on a single site, “could be a great guest experience which integrates the content and stories from Milwaukee Public Museum with the content and experience of the current Domes and Conservatory. Specifically, the natural history portion of the MPM storyline fits very nice with the Domes experiences.”

The report also says that, “the cost of properly renovating the Domes greatly outweighs the benefit of doing so.”
