Do Oconomowoc and Milwaukee have anything in common other than two strange indian-sounding names?

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has been writing and editorializing about Oconomowoc a lot lately.

But is what happens in Oconomowoc really any of their business?

Oconocmowoc is not part of Milwaukee County.

It’s nearly an hour from downtown Milwaukee.

It may actually be closer to Madison than it is to Milwaukee.

Is the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel basically making a land grab in Milwaukee’s name by acting as if Oconomowoc is essentially a (pretty damn distant) suburb of Milwaukee?
