    Talk about a long winded article that buries the lead.

    So what is the purpose of this article?
    To beat up on the long gone developers for buying “damp farmland” with potentially poor drainage and trying to market it as an upscale development complete with a long list of building restrictions and poor choice of maple tree; Or is it to moan the loss of the authors boyhood backyard where he apparently wondered the fields and chased wildlife; Or to introduce us to Marquette’s new coach and his family and then beat them up for buying a house big enough to entertain his team and supporters as is an apparent part of his job description: Or is it to beat up and attempt to drag down anyone who can afford a big house in the country and leave us wondering about the author who voyeuristically rides through the neighborhood peeping through the undergrowth in search or high crimes and misdemeanors.
    I mean Really – developers have never been known for their style and savvy; and farmland (both dry and swampy) is being turned into housing everywhere you turn; and if you want to talk about big expensive homes, take a drive down Lake Drive.
    As for Coach Wojo – some of us are very happy to have him.

    Bruce, it’s obvious you care deeply about Coach Wojo and his neighbors… maybe you can buy him a spare sump pump to help with the recent rains. Either that or some cranberry seeds to rectify the poor choice of landscaping.

    Just an observation here, I love this section of Urban Milwaukee here comes the butt, But why is every article written in a way to degrade or sneer or snicker at rich people and their homes. Not everyone wants to live in a 900sq/ft home on the east side. If it’s not walkable it’s ripped on, if it’s not a small bungalow the article is very condescending and belittling whoever it is written about. Like no none needs that much house or land and the article seems to chastise the homeowner in this feature. How about just an observation and a look into the house and the neighborhood without sneering and condescension. I can only imagine what it will be like when UM does a feature on Charlie Sykes’s Mequon home.
