The Prince


Republicans are at it again. In their Machiavellian quest for power the Wisconsin Republican party got busted trying to finagle the redistricting process. Republicans moved more than 300,000 voters in and out of districts. A panel of three judges ruled redistricting by Republicans violated citizen voting rights. With the two-party dictatorship we have Democrats and Republicans more concerned with gaining ... Read More »

Brain Drain


By D. Bob Sauer At least three times a week I meet with my court-appointed mental health care professional. Every time we get together I jokingly call him “the rapist,” and every time, he sternly reminds me that “therapist” is one word. After we, every time, get through that monotonously moronic exchange, I’m required to spill my guts on a ... Read More »

It’s a wonderful life


By Tom Smith This month I would like to start with a big welcome for the year 2014. I can’t believe it’s the year 2014 already, well almost, as I write this. What do I think of this 2014 thing?

You don’t think about all the time and ... Read More »

“Murph Man” – Never Forgotten


By Michael Mentzer We would have celebrated Murphy’s 15th birthday or his 105th—take your pick—on Jan. 4. It all depended on whether we were celebrating in human terms or dog years. A year in human terms equates to seven in a dog’s life, just in case you’ve never heard that formula before. But Murph never made it that far. His ... Read More »

Boxkar – Spreading the Word on Wisconsin Original Music


By Kay Halbrook  Boxkar’s fully loaded rock sound isn’t a happy accident. It might be easy to start a band, but it takes talent, smarts and lots of hard work to keep growing as a musical group for more than 10 years. Talking with Chris Szebeni, you get the impression that those years have taught him lessons that he is ... Read More »

Tweets from the Future


By Nick Olig When I read that Amazon was designing delivery drones, I immediately pictured the robotic flying things one day shooting death-rays at innocent people. I got rattled by that level of technology in the works. Was that just me? Now, I realize there’s got to be a sensible reality somewhere between death-rays in the sky and the notion ... Read More »
