The Flumo Center at the University of Wisconsin Madison advertises itself as a great place to hold retreats, but I’m gonna guess there’s a noise issue. And noise ain’t the half of it.

The situation has gotten so bad that the Fluno Center, a nonprofit conference center with guest rooms affiliated with UW-Madison that is located across the street from the bars, has added extra security and patrols, general manager Andy Abelman said.

Abelman said it’s just a matter of time before the fist fights [among hundreds of gun-toting gang members] turn into gunfights. “I think there’s going to be one or multiple fatalities,” he said.

On the up side, a local reporter notes that “[n]obody has been shot in the area this year.” Which is great. Great. Massive brawls, yes; pretty constant gang warfare… And gang members seem to like to “pick fights with drunken students”… But so far everything’s just fine! UW students can breathe easy.

    Yes, and the newspaper didn’t open a comment section on the article, because such a comment section would likely reveal that Madison is only superficially the diverse and welcoming community its Political Masters (and the folks running the university) would have you believe.
