    It isn't false. We drink. A lot.

    But states that don't drink (I'm looking at you, every state south of the Ohio River except maybe Louisiana) consistently make worse choices than we do. We elected Ron Johnson. Oops. We also elected Tammy Baldwin. Still waiting for Alabama or Mississippi to do that.

      the union bar sold the most beer of any bar in the country.  UW-Madison would have been first but they had two bars in their union.  Ha!

        I'm an occasionally proud graduate of UWM ('84) and at the time, I didn't think there was anything unusual about the existence of the Gasthaus. It was obvious. The drinking age was 18, so why not have a place to drink that's convenient?

        Then, later on when I got out in the world a little, I learned that some people, and not just from religious colleges, thought it was utterly bizarre to have a bar on university property. To me, a Milwaukee boy, it was a given.

          I think I ws there 81-83.  Only spent 2.5 years there and then decided I was smart enough to start my own business and it has been downhill ever since.  I have fond memories of Milwaukee--great town.

            Class of 1973.

            The Gasthaus can into existence in 1970 or 1971 if memory serves me correctly.

            There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
