Wednesday on Lake Effect:

On the show today, a leading national expert weighs in on why stadium or arena projects succeed... or fail. Then, we'll travel to one of the area's last lines of defense for aging typewriters. Essayist Linda Benjamin says how we look at things often has a big effect on how we feel about them. And actress Deb Staples and director Leda Hoffman discuss the one woman show, The Amish Project, which opens tonight at the Milwaukee Rep.
