We’re all disappointed.
This summer should have been New-Milwaukee’s coming out party. Out with Lavern and Shirley, in with overpriced downtown apartments, Whole Foods, and decades-old shots of the skyline on prime time national television.
2020 had other plans, of course. No NBA Finals at Fiserv Forum, no Summerfest, and of course, no Democratic National Convention.
Sure, they keep telling us it’s here. But where? Have you found it yet? Is it hiding on Pittsburgh Avenue, or is it called Fresh Water Way now?
As if things couldn’t get worse, now Stephen Colbert, host of the Late Show on CBS and someone many have called a homeless man’s David Letterman, is taking shots at the ole place by the lake. He’s kicking us while we’re down.
He takes us on a virtual tour of a virtual convention in what can only be described as a virtual city, void of reality.
Virtual Squirrels? I don’t get it.
Are we going to let this happen? Stephen has hundreds of viewers. The false word is sure to spread.
Well, our friends at Visit Milwaukee won’t allow it. They sent Colbert and his friends at the Late Show a memo. A VERY OFFICIAL MEMO.
The subject? A moratorium on outdated Milwaukee jokes.
