That's one way to support our troops

Gov. Doyle and Transportation Secretary Frank Busalacchi told the JS editorial board that they would consider expanding I-94 through Milwaukee.

Part of the proposal to expand the east-west portion of the freeway calls for hanging lanes directly over the graves in Wood Memorial Cemetery.

So while soldiers are dying now for oil, Doyle and Busalacchi are willing to spend billions more on freeways that encourage more oil consumption and the will increase the probability of additional oil wars. At the same time, these two gents are simultaneously showing the most blatant kind of disrespect for soldiers who fought this country's earlier wars.

Way to go, gents.
