Tuesday on Lake Effect:
A new biennial state budget is signed into law; Rob Henken of Milwaukee’s Public Policy Forum puts it into context. Then, essayist Avi Lank has some thoughts on keeping his personal budget under control. We’ll talk with one of the artists from the 30 Americans exhibition at the Milwaukee Art Museum, who turns the visual language of advertising into fine art. And on the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, we honor Wisconsin’s contributions to the Union cause, and hear a song written by the Madison-based band Count This Penny, with lyrics provided by a Wisconsin Civil War soldier.
