Prestegard Is an Intelligent Guy!

Since I've been saying this for a few years, it's obvious that Prestegard is a bright young fellow.

Which brings to mind (thanks to a reader who reminded me) my proposal of two years ago to eliminate the Wisconsin State Patrol.

He thinks it will save around $35 million.

I'd suggest (and Prestegard may agree) that retaining truck-inspection and mobile-network expertise is important.

As to the traffic-cops? Dump 'em. There are lotsa County Mounties out there--and when the Town of Brookfield cops are bored, (or need a few revenue dollars) THEY'RE patrolling the Interstate, too.

Sure, dump the WSP but don't give control to the counties - they should be dumped too.

Agreed, Dad. But what would Herb Kohler do for the golf tournaments at Whistling Straits - where half the State Patrol seem to be engaged in directing traffic?
