    The bit about the iron mine up north is troubling to me. Yeah, the area is incredibly economically depressed. but Jeebus. All that national forest land, and all the water? The lakes up there are crystal clear. Trees for miles and miles. It’s beautiful and remote. And somehow I think a mining company that hires ARMED GUARDS over freaking ROADBLOCKS, isn’t going to be, iunno, too careful or touchy feely about things like minimizing pollution, or not lobbying the state legislature to ease pollution regulations. It’s not like Walker would put up much of a fight over said regs, anyhow. Plus, I somehow feel the environmental groups and the Ojibwe will get completely ignored. My adopted state makes me grumble just as much as my homestate, albeit for different reasons.
