Milwaukee loves lists, especially when someone else does one where we show up as a positive and praiseworthy place to live.
Great bars, best lake, finest craft beers â€“ you know it and we love lists and usually trumpet them loudly.
Well, thereâ€™s a new list out and if it doesnâ€™t get your dander up and make you swear, then your credentials as a real Wisconsinite may be revoked. They will at least be suspect.

And James Lofton was widely regarded as about the best receiver of his time, even though he played on chronically bad teams under Bart Starr the coach.
Starr the quarterback doesnâ€™t even get a mention on this list despite being the field general for what may well have been the greatest teams in the history of the league.
