Martin Luther King Jr. assassination

Americans, we’re much better with pop music than history. Which is why the line in U2’s “Pride” that goes, “Shot rings out in the Memphis sky,” is how a lot of people remember where Martin Luther King, Jr., leader of the American Civil Rights movement, was tragically gunned down in 1968. That’s because most of us don’t really care where it happened. To most Americans, Memphis conjures up images of the neon lights of Beale Street, smoky barbecue, and dirty blues. In the American collective con...

Judge Blocks Wisconsin GOP’s Early-Voting Restrictions

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A federal judge on Thursday struck down early-voting restrictions Wisconsin Republicans adopted in a December lame-duck legislative session, saying the limits are clearly similar to restrictions he blocked two years ago.

When Trees Are Part Of The Design, Is It Okay To Cut Them Down?

Milwaukee’s Marcus Center for the Performing Arts has a need to attract new audiences (and don’t we all). So there’s a plan to refresh the complex’s campus, including an idea to cut down a grove of trees and replace it with a lawn. But Mary Louise Schumacher wonders if destroying the trees – an important design element of the current campus – is really in the best interest of the community. – Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

Our Midseason NBA awards: MVP, Defensive Player of Year, Coach of Year, much more

Most Valuable Player talk started the first week of the season. Now that we're about halfway through the campaign we have seen enough games, we have enough data to start saying who is the frontrunner for the NBA's end-of-season awards. This is basically a coin flip for me between Harden — who has been good all season on offense and has surged of late carrying the Rockets back up the standings — and Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo, who has been more consistent on both ends of the...

Custom Bikes Of The Week: 13 January, 2019

Ever heard of the Suzuki XF650 Freewind before? Neither had we, but we love this custom scrambler from the Netherlands. We’ve also got a Buell M2 Cyclone that actually looks attractive, and a Honda CR750 racer priced at a quarter of a million dollars—and worth every cent. Buell M2 Cyclone by Officine Urgani Even the most ardent Buell fanboy would have to admit that the M2 Cyclone is an ugly bike, even by Buell’s admittedly variable standards.
