A Tale Of Two Bloggers

Over the weekend, the Journal Sentinel finally noticed that there is some issues with the name of Boomgaard for South 27th St., where it runs through Oak Creek and Franklin. Greg Kowalski, aka the Green Knight, has been pouring his heart and soul into this fiasco of a name, and how it was chosen. Kowalski was cited in the article:
"I find it hard to believe that the chair of the committee is Dutch and the name just turns out to be Dutch," said blogger and Franklin Environmental Commission member Greg Kowalski, who thinks the cities didn't do enough to elicit public input and that the name can be too easily lampooned by substituting a letter or two.

"A lot of people didn't know this was being discussed until it was announced," Kowalski said.

I think the young man represented himself well in this article.

Meanwhile, Fischer, also a Franklin resident, has been mocking Kowalski at every turn, and apparently thinks that Kowalski and the great number of Franklin and Oak Creek residents who are unhappy with this name, should just shut up.

Of course, we've already talked about the attention that Fischer has received from the media, when he was covered in Milwaukee Magazine twice, once for his sophomoric behavior, and once for his questionable time management.

I'd have to say that the winner of this joust would be the Green Knight.
