There is some hope though that logging the State Parks might get them some revenue to share in (rolls eyes). What is more, Laws have been passed and funding is being steadily taken away from the public schools to reward special interests for their political donations. Education contractors are already in place and public schools are decaying physically. Finally, Esquire magazine long since ran an article that Wisconsin&r
