Dear Senator Ellis, Welcome to the 21st Century

Wisconsin Senate President Mike Ellis, a Neenah Republican, apologizes for referring to Green Bay Preble High School as 'sewer'. (Appleton Post-Crescent, 1/27/2012)

Excerpt: Ellis [first elected to the Wisconsin State Assembly in 1970] apologized for his remarks. 

"It was very unfortunate, and I do apologize," he said. "I, for no reason, threw out the name Preble. I meant 'if Preble is going down the sewer,' not that it — or any Green Bay school — is a sewer. Boy, did I miss the mark. I apologize, and I have sent a letter apologizing. It is not a failing school." 

Green Bay School Dist. Supt. Michelle Langenfeld invited Ellis to visit Green Bay schools.

Perhaps it's time for Sen. Ellis to do a little brushing up.

Notice what's missing here?
