For years, the state of Wisconsin--and more specifically, the city of Milwaukee--have complained about our fair city's monopoly on delicious delicious lake water. The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel has the latest diatribe against our hording of dihydrogen monoxide. As it turns out, the Supreme Court decided only we're special enough to lap up that clear gold, and the State of Illinois has been vehement in demands to keep other cities and states away from lake water.
