UPDATE: Wisconsin voters pass majority of school referendums on spring election ballots

Wisconsin voters continue to approve more school referendums as $700 million OK'd this week.  (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 4/6/2017)
In all, voters agreed to take on an additional $464.7 million in new debt for building projects — on top of the $1.35 billion approved last year — and to contribute an additional $235 million for operating expenses. Of the 65 questions before voters Tuesday, 40, or 62% passed, including a near-record $181.3 million sought for the burgeoning Verona Area School District in Dane County.  [emphasis added]

Original 3/5/2017 post, "Dear Capital Times, That's pretty slim evidence", starts here.

(Apparently, you need to enter your own data)

Total passed:  122.
Total failed:  32
Passage rate:  79.3%

The Capital Times, on the other hand, thinks that a 60% -- 3 for 5 -- success rate deserves a 'falling' rating.

What a bunch of gomers, especially when the second entry in this category is the egregious teeth-whitener John Humphries.

Maybe the CT should wait for the results of the 65 referenda on the April 4 ballots.

Truly questionable deductions.

'Falling' debuted at #76 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the week ending June 8, 1963.  It spent 8 weeks on the chart, peaking at #22.  What a crime!
