Some town commissioners in suburban Brookfield, WI don't want a discount food store setting up shop there. You can get a flavor of the general outrage in this here comments thread, complete with sarcastic comparisons of Bluemound Road, Brookfield's main shopping drag, with Rodeo Drive.
I think that may be the first time I've seen Whitefish Bay referred to as "White Folks Bay" in print. "North Shore Nancies"* turns up a few times too.
Most of the outrage and sarcasm comes from non-Brookfield residents, however. If Brookfield doesn't want an Aldi then they don't need to have one, I suppose.
They've already got enough problems with mom and dad smoking crack and shooting up in the bathroom at Chuck E. Cheese.
What I want to know is, if the good burghers of Brookfield want to keep out the indigent, how did they ever allow Second Swing in there?
Second Swing is a "previously-enjoyed" golf club store where poor people can go and buy used Callaway drivers and Scotty Cameron putters for only a few hundred dollars each.
* "Mequon is a suburb of Milwaukee. It has no discernable character, no downtown, few areas to walk around. It is often thought of as the 'elite' of Milwaukee's elite suburbs. Very wealthy community. The derogatory term 'North Shore Nancy' refers to the bored wives of rich doctors, lawyers and businessmen who live in Mequon and other North Shore communities. These 'North Shore Nancies' are known for collecting art, dabbling in self indulgent and expensive hobbies, impeccably groomed toy dogs and fine fur coats."

If you live in Mequon, it's only ten minutes by Cadillac Escalade from the North Shore Country Club to the Aldi in Brown Deer. And if you remove the second and third bench seats from an Escalade, there's 108.9 cubic feet of luggage space, which is a lot of Kraft Dinner.
