Does this guy know how to party or what?
  • Alice Cooper: Well, I'm a regular visitor here, but Milwaukee has certainly had its share of visitors. The French missionaries and explorers began visiting here in the late 16th century.
  • Pete: Hey, isn't "Milwaukee" an Indian name?
  • Alice Cooper: Yes, Pete, it is. In fact, it was originally an Algonquin term meaning "the good land."
  • Wayne: I was not aware of that.
  • Alice Cooper: I think one of the most interesting things about Milwaukee is that it's the only American city to elect three Socialist mayors.
