I first read about the tracking of Brett Favre's flight from Mississippi to Green Bay on the Journal Sentinel's Web site. Clicking the icon I viewed a radar image with a mini-plane somewhere over Illinois on its way to Wisconsin, a dotted trail following the plane to make sure even . . .

The Fairly Detached Observers

There are deadlines, and then there are Shepherd Express deadlines. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell honored this precept when he told the Packers and Brett Favre to resolve their feud by Monday.

A few days ago I suggested the halcyon days of the Brewers season had come to a close after a four-game sweep by the Cubs. Some readers groused at the notion the salad days had ended, suggesting . . .

For those who may not have heard, over the past few weeks there has been some kind of controversy going on between the Green Bay Packers and Brett Favre, one of the greatest quarterbacks in football history.

Tonight @ Miller Park - 7:05 p.m.

A warning to those driving home on 1-94 this evening: The city is about to be infiltrated by crappy drivers. That’s because the Brewers are playing the Cubs tonight, inevitably bringing with them hordes of Illinoisans who have come to (hopefully) witness the Brew Crew wound the Cubbies’ playoff hopes while advancing their own . . .
