The Business of Crime

 Brad Pitt reunites with Andrew Dominik, director of the elegiac western The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, for a highly stylized, awfully brutal, sharply critical gangster picture, Killing Them Softly

Tonight @ U.S. Cellular Connection Stage, Summerfest, 10 p.m.

Though it sold like gangbusters, Bush's 1994 debut, Sixteen Stone, was derided by critics as a shameless attempt to polish grunge-rock for the masses. That feedback must have weighed heavily on frontman Gavin Rossdale, because he...

"I am in control here in the White House."—Secretary of State Alexander Haig, 1981 Ah, the good old days when even a big shot like Gen. Al Haig could get in trouble for such mavericky declarations that defy basic constitutional precedents. In the 21st century, that's ancient history. We've so idealized cowboy-style rebellion in matters of war...

Veterans helping veterans transition from war to peace

Milwaukee’s community of veterans is proving to be adept at healing soldiers from the current wars as well as those who left the battlefield decades ago. Many veterans are reaching out to their peers who are having difficulty transitioning from being warriors in a threat-filled combat zone to resuming their lives as workers, students, spouses, partners or parents. The transition from warrior to civilian isn’t easy, and can be made more difficult by financial stresses...

Placed on the 15-day DL retroactive to Sunday, an MRI revealed that Bush has a micro-tear in his right triceps. The tear is a result of getting struck by a Hanley Ramirez line drive at the beginning of June.This is Bush’s first trip to the DL and the first time he’ll miss a start, which is a crazy streak and must kind of suck for him, though he did say that he’s relieved to know that somethi...

I can't say former Brewers, since the first one was broken my Damian Miller before he came to Milwaukee, but a small graphic in yesterday's Journal-Sentinel that showed some of the details of Bush's three no-hitters-into-the-eighth-inning and all three were broken up by guys who'd donned Brewers blue in the last few years.July 20, 2004 (while pitching with Toronto) vs. Oakland broken up by Dami...

The ever-wonderful Ryan Miller introduced me to some of his fellow FM 102.1 DJs last night at the Shepherd�s Best of Milwaukee party, and our conversation turned to songs long since retired from the station�s regular play list. We covered favorites brought back occasionally (Tori Amos� �Cornflake Girl�) and novelties unlikely to return anytime soon (The Ass Ponies� �Little Bastard�), which led me ...

The alien who took over Dave Bush seems to have vacated his position and the old Dave Bush returned this afternoon, giving up 6 runs in the top of the 1st.And to be fair, the team as a whole is kind of choking. As I mentioned earlier in the week, if the season were to end now, we'd be playing the Mets in the post-season. Obviously, after these 3 games, that's not something we're ready for.It seems...

Ok, it's not that bad, but yesterday I was reading the mailbag over at MilwaukeeBrewers.com and McCalvy included this tidbit: By the way, Yost said Monday morning that he has several top-secret scenarios in mind for his starting rotation down the stretch. He could stay the course and simply bump all five starters back a day when the team is off, but even that won't work during the week of Aug....

I can't say as I've ever heard of anything like this, but Brew Town Beat is reporting that the Brewers are considering using a platoon in the starting rotation: "In an interesting turn of events, on WSSP's Doug Russell show this morning Adam McCalvy indicated that when Jeff Suppan returns the Brewers are leaning towards a six man rotation. To pull this off, Seth McClung and Dave Bush woul...

Milwaukee’s active advocates for impeachment were surprised last week when the one man who could move forward impeachment proceedings in the House of Representatives —Michigan Congressman John Conyers, the chair of the House Judiciary Committee—agreed to meet with them for an hour the next day.

Demon-free and happy, Gavin Rossdale goes solo

Gavin Rossdale was never a particularly convincing tortured soul to begin with, but with each passing year of domestic bliss with his superstar wife, Gwen Stefani, each picture of the photogenic couple and their beaming son, and each celebrity tennis tournament, it became even harder to buy the sun-tanned family man as the embodiment of existential despair. The former Bush frontman gave his old tormented persona one last spin in 2005, teaming with members of Helmet to record a lone album of thrashing, seething alternative rock with a short-lived new band, Institute . . .

Ray Hallstrand, Milwaukee

Imagine if 9/11 had never happened. Would this President and Vice President have gotten away with such a weak case for war in direct opposition to the rest of the world? Would Americans have let our politicians bully and fire independent judges and a CIA agent, set themselves apart from laws with 700 signing statements, alter scientific reports on global warming or strong-arm Attorney General Ashcroft, deathly ill in a hospital, into signing questionable surveillance laws? Bush and Cheney would have been impeached many times over!

Calling for Impeachment is our Constitutional right and totally American. The House called for impeachment of Bill Clinton because he lied about an affair.

Regardless, whether we think $30 saved in Federal Tax Reduction between Memorial Day and Labor Day, this year, is a big deal or not, has anyone challenged Hillary Clinton and John McCain as how they plan to accomplish the tax break by MEMORIAL DAY?

Speculation of devious activities by this current administration has gone on for many years now and will continue to linger for many more. So many books have been written about Cheney's heavy-handed, manipulative and ultimately incompetent drive to war.

By blacking out impeachment from the halls of Congress and from the minds of the American populace, the leadership in Congress, with the cooperation of the news media, has betrayed America and our Constitution.

Have you heard the news? 400 Code Pink members are on a fast for impeachment of Messrs. Bush and Cheney for charges of "high crimes and misdemeanors", two candidates are running against Nancy Pelosi because she isn't considering impeachment, two towns in Vermont have voted to prosecute our Nation's top two leaders if they enter their jurisdiction, and polls say 54% of Americans want impeachment for Cheney if hearings prove wrongdoing.

Today @ O'Donnell Park - 1:00 PM

Five years ago this month, President Bush invaded Iraq, beginning a war that to this day shows no signs of ending. This afternoon at 1 p.m., protesters from around the city will respectfully congregate for a rally at O’Donnell Park. Following several short speeches, there will be a march with the caskets and tombstones . . .

On the old Shepherd-Express.com site, I used to run a semi-regular Discount CD Round-Up feature, but I�ve cut back in recent months, mostly because I made a resolution not to buy CDs I don�t need. Does it matter that I can snag the Tommy Boy soundtrack for 99 cents if I won�t even spin the thing once? After buying one too many MTV Party to Go compilations just because I could afford them, I began ...

Bush The Delusional is trying desperately to gather support for an attack on Iran before he and Cheney move to Dubai. Here is what he said, as reported in the NYT, "Iran's actions threaten the security of nations everywhere. So, the U.S. is strengthening our long-standing security commitments with our friends in the gulf and [get this], rallying our friends around the world to control the danger [...
