They figured he was a lazy time wasting slacker. They were wrong.

Ordinarily the decisions of the United States Bowling Congress don't catch my eye, but their recent one to move from their traditional headquarters in suburban Milwaukee to Arlington, Texas did:

MILWAUKEE — The United States Bowling Congress has decided to move its headquarters from suburban Milwaukee to Arlington, Texas.


USBC had hinted for months it wanted to leave Milwaukee. It cited the cost of doing business, including taxes and health care costs, in southeast Wisconsin as a major factor.

From another source: "A move of its headquarters out of Milwaukee was viewed by many as more than just a loss of jobs, but the loss of a key part of the city's identity."

So, legislators, councilmen, and other high-and-mighty guardians take note: you can't have everything you want.
