Website

It is definitely self-serving for the Shepherd Express to list its own website, expressmilwaukee.com, as the critics’ choice, but it’s become the premier Milwaukee-focused website for tens of thousands of people in the area. Since the website received a complete redesign and upgrade two years ago, it has grown at a...

South Dakota’s Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse monument and wi

Summertime road trips of 700-some miles into South Dakota, the Badlands and the Black Hills seem like a rite of passage. This is the most classic of vacations, especially for families, who follow typically flat and easy-to-drive I-90 for a glimpse of the Wild West. They encounter Shady Brady hats and jackalopes...

McCain campaign co-chair J.B. Van Hollen tries to disenfranchise

In the last two presidential elections, we have been forced to watch from afar as public officials in closely contested states abuse their authority in clear attempts to sway the entire election.

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, Sept. 11, Neil Hamburger @ Cactus Club, 10 p.m. With his greasy comb-over, cheap tuxedo, poor comic timing and frequent, phlegmy coughing fits, Neil Hamburger’s sendup of bad stand-ups should be almost as tired as the bad stand-ups he’s mocking. But Hamburger’s shtick is really just a vehicle for his...

Don’t tarnish Clinton’s legacy

As the Democrats convene in Denver to celebrate Hillary Clinton and nominate Barack Obama, a tiny minority of her supporters continues to behave petulantly. They whine, they bluster, they agitate. But what is it about Sen. Clinton’s repeated endorsements of her former opponent that they cannot understand?

Assembly Endorsement

The 22nd Assembly District, which encompasses the North Shore suburbs and some of Milwaukee, is fortunate to have the choice of four top-notch candidates to represent them in the next legislative session. But one candidate stands out from the rest. The Shepherd Express strongly endorses Sandra Pasch for the 22nd District.

I’m Art Kumbalek and man oh manischewitz what a world, ain’a? So listen, as the tailpipe exhaust yet dissipates into the declining atmosphere of another every-half-a-decade post- Harley HOG fest, I’m behooved to banter that I inhabit the downtown city of Milwaukee by choice. When you live here constantly...

I grew up in a small town in Indiana with a population of about 5,000. The town had two stoplights, one on each end of the downtown area, which stretched for one block.

This Week in Milwaukee

Nas w/ Talib Kweli @ The Rave, 8 p.m. Given the inability of Nas’ last album to explain exactly why hip-hop was dead, the media understandably greeted Nas’ latest untitled album, originally titled Nigger, with great skepticism. Against the odds, though, the rapper created a piece of art that more than addressed...
