follow those appellate rules!

"Because Cook's brief violates the rules of appellate procedure and does not identify any legal issues, we affirm the judgment."  With language like that, how can one doubt that this Wisconsin case is a potential teaching tool?  Granted, it's a pro se appellant, but still a good lesson:  Courts care about rules and expect them to be followed.
