"NEWS: Milwaukee Mayor Attacked"

Milwaukee made national news today.

Yesterday, after visiting the Wisconsin State Fair with his family, Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett stopped to help a woman who was screaming for help. According to the police report, she was trying to protect her 1-year-old granddaughter from a 20-year-old man. Barrett confronted the intoxicated man.... and was beaten with a lead pipe.

Barrett, 55, is in stable condition at a local hospital with a fractured hand and head wounds. The woman and baby were unharmed; the 20-year-old man was arrested earlier today.

Here's wishing Barrett a swift and speedy recovery.
