    No joke, this is all too much of a reality. Milwaukee needs to put more regulations on Landlords because apparently they cannot do the right thing and make a safe livable rental on their own. I lived near Brady street (so no, not in the ghetto) and for 3 months we had a leaking stove because the landlord refused to take a look at it. He also told me that I was lying, you could easily smell gas leaking.
