A remarkable sight

It was one of the more remarkable political moments in a while -- Milwaukee aldermen absolutely ripping Democratic state senators for abandoning city interests during budget negotiations, with Ald. Mike D'Amato calling them out by name.

That was last week. As this week gets underway, and Gov. Doyle and his Republican co-negotiators have to reveal more about their budget deal than they put in their press releases, here's betting that a lot more people will be furious.

What do you think is more likely to be included in the budget? Additional money for Milwaukee County's starving mass transit system that thousands and thousands of people rely on for basic transporation, or approval of Zoo Interchange reconstruction before even a single environmental study is done, before there is a budget, and before there is a funding source?
