Stereotypes[edit]

I think we should have at least a section for these.... or a whole new page--174.103.195.12 (talk) 22:03, 3 November 2010 (UTC)

Inclusion in The Great Lakes Region (North America)[edit]

I made a minor edit, to become consistent with the other Great Lakes Region states and Canadian Province of Ontario, pointing out that Wisconsin is part of bi-national The Great Lakes Region (North America).

The other states are: New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois and Minnesota; as well as the Province of Quebec.

All these American states are plenipotentiary members of the bi-national Great Lakes Commission, and border The Great Lakes. — Preceding unsigned comment added by GreatLakesdemocracy (talkcontribs) 06:08, 26 December 2011 (UTC)

crime stats[edit]

Could we break down the crime from state to cities and regions? I highly doubt the crime in Milwaukee has any relevance on the northern cities in the state. --ProfPolySci45 (talk) 06:01, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

  • Crime is higher in rural areas, per capita. Speciate (talk) 13:04, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

Lead section[edit]

Orangemike deletes my proposed new lead-section in favour of the 'standard lede format'. I suggest it might be time to review the benefits and drawbacks of this format, which lists all the least interesting features of the topic, instead of summarising the content, as often requested by Wiki. 86.144.116.230 (talk) 10:59, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

Not enough climate data[edit]

The climate section isn't very detailed enough, it needs information about extreme weather such as tornadoes and blizzards. Lamp301 (talk) 03:10, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
