He’s earned the nickname “McSame” for a reason

Back in 2000, when John McCain first ran for president, he was considered a maverick. Back then, he labeled televangelists Pat Robertson and the late Jerry Falwell “agents of intolerance,” was working on campaign finance reform with Democrat Russ Feingold and was viewed as someone who stuck to his principles,...

He isn’t concerned about troop levels

Last week, on The Today Show, John McCain was asked: Assuming the surge is working, do you have a better estimate of when our troops can come home? The presumptive Republican presidential nominee responded, “No, but that’s not too important. What’s important is the casualties in Iraq.”

The Fairly Detached Observers

I`m Art Kumbalek and here's the story. The Shepherd wants a weekly sports column, since sports apparently seems to be a popular topic of conversation these days amongst a certain clique.

The Fairly Detached Observers

Frank: Well, Artie, I think this first cold one should be a toast to ourselves. It’s clear that we provided the impetus for those sweeps of the Astros and D-Backs. Artie: You betcha, my friend. Um, exactly how did we do that? Not that I’m opposed to toasting us.

The Fairly Detached Observers

The NBA was having the best of times and worst of times when the Observers got together on June 13. The vintage Lakers-Celtics matchup for the championship was clouded by allegations from disgraced referee Tim Donaghy that other refs skewed their calls to help the Lakers win a crucial game in the 2002 Western...

The Fairly Detached Observers

It’s almost a part of Major League Baseball’s yearly schedule, like Opening Day and the All-Star Game. Sometime between those two, MLB pleads with its players, managers and umpires to pick up the pace of games. It happened again in May. Somehow, completing nine innings takes upward of a half-hour longer...

That means more of your money is used to buy from other local businesses, service providers and farms, further strengthening the local economy and creating more jobs. Supporting local businesses helps create a “living economy,” according to Our Milwaukee, an alliance of 50 local businesses that is raising business awareness the week of July 7-13 with a film, prize drawings and special retail offerings.

Tonight @ the U.S. Cellular Connection Stage

Critics were never that hot on The Bravery to begin with—they described the group's 2005 dance-rock debut as a shameless Killers rip-off—but they've taken an even harder line against the group's new The Sun and the Moon, a scattered, occasionally heavy-handed move away from their once synthy sound. Spin Sun and...
