I'm pretty sure the alcoholism doesn't help.

Funny story. Only STD I've had was catching chlamydia from a woman in Milwaukee.

From the article:

"It is believed at least 125 people have contracted HIV and syphilis, and they're connected in some way."

That's some great science there Lou....

"We're going to be doing testing. You'll get a $10 gift card if you come to get tested to McDonald's," said James.

I can't be the only person stopped dead in their tracks at this sentence.
Hey girl, come with me and let's go get gift cards and some nuggets and some v.d. testing.

Milwaukee means "good place" or "meeting place by the water" in the Algonquin language. Little did etymologists know that "to catch an STD" was an unstated part of the definition.

These things happen.  It's a Milwaukee thing.

Because nothing says "we're promoting a healthy lifestyle" like giving out McDonald's coupons!

As a person who drives through Milwaukee a couple of times a year, STDs are the least of their problems.
 
2018-03-14 08:55:13 AM  
And the cheese ... and the beer. Oh and Germanfest, Musicfest- the State Fair. Combine all those and maybe the STD rate isn't so bad. Right now most of Milwaukee is either mourning Jordy or they are getting amped up at the over built Brewers outfield.

Living near Milwaukie, OR I have found that most spell checkers can't deal with an alternate spelling.

A good, sturdy Milwaukee woman can give you an athletic lovin' session you won't soon forget. And the clap.

Did a white water rafting trip in Oregon years ago and one of our tour guides was this very hippie and spacy kind of girl. Had a name like "Destiny" or something like that.  She mentioned to us she was from Milwaukie and I said that was funny as one wouldn't think it's a common name "Milwaukee", just like Milwaukee in Wisconsin (and I also grew up in suburban Milwaukee).  She replied with total seriousness, "there's another Milwaukee?"

This. The bad areas of Milwaukee are really bad and crime wise rank up there with the worst of Baltimore, Chicago, Detroit. Stay out of the ghetto.

The cheese condoms, they do nothing.

I remember for years it used to be Baltimore, good to see they passed the flaming, oozing torch.

Come for the carjackings and shootings... stay for the STDs.

This news is a shock considering their stance on abstinence only education programs.

It's funny how obtuse they're being.  Reading between the lines in multiple articles, the "cluster" is apparently young African American gay men, and men/women they had/have sex with, who didn't live through the AIDS crisis.  This is why they're giving out McD gift cards and expecting it to be effective.

Milwaukee is actually 4 almost unrelated cities.  There's the East side with university students and young families.  It's a fun, cool, reasonably safe place to be.  Then there's the South side and south burbs which are white-ethnic and working class.  The north and west burbs are rich areas with soccer moms and BMWs.  Then there's the North side and central city which are segregated, dangerous, and neglected.  It's almost exactly like a little Chicago.  I left for Arizona in 2016, but miss Milwaukee except for the winters.

Milwaukee.  A place whereyou can't drink the water but you can eat the people...If you want an STD.

Good documentary.  Lived in the Milwaukee 'burbs most of my childhood.  Still have family in the "mean streets" of Shorewood.
