Sadly, my town is on the map

I’m surprised to see my town in international news now, especially for such a sad reason.  My wife and I were actually watching the Big Ten tournament when the local CBS affiliate ran a scroller with the news during the game.  I remember us both uttering something along the lines of “holy <expletive>” when the words, “…in Brookfield…” appeared.  We later ran some errands on Saturday and it was really weird to see upwards of a dozen news vans parked in from of the police station.
A few people at work this morning commented that we (Microsoft) have had a ton of events at that hotel  (our offices used to be right next door), although most I remember have been out at the Country Inn in Waukesha.
Nonetheless, my sympathies go out to the families affected by this senseless violence.

    Having grown up in Green Bay, Milwaukee and Madison, I have an idea how you feel. At one point, my dad’s work was in Brookfield.
