Shouldn't Steve had said "Whose" not "Who's"?

Yeah--pretty much. His glass house is already full of holes, though.

As a former student of MFHS with a GPA around 3.6, music provided no benefit to me. I tended toRead More remain straight also.

Arts education in our schools is not a luxury, it is a must. Students who participate in the artsRead More not only learn skills that can help them academically (for example - music is a study in math, theatre is a study in English), but it also teaches discipline, focus, and creates a more well-rounded person. As a former MFHS student who participated in choir, band, and drama as well as many other activities (in addition to being an honor roll student), the arts education I received from the Menomonee Falls School District helped me immensely to become the successful, well-rounded adult I am today. Perhaps if people like Nuitari had spent some time in the arts at MFHS, they would be more tolerable of and sympathetic to all types of people in this world and the contributions they provide, instead of making flippant statements and immature jokes. The arts provide an environment of support and inclusion for students to create and achieve, of which our district clearly needs a little more of - certainly not less. Save the arts and save our students' futures.

Oh the nice things we could have had if WEAC and their scam insurance pass through WEA Trust wouldRead More have not stolen billions from the taxpayers. Oh well, union first students second.

Chip, Kyle and all the others working to make this happen, I am excited for you all and wish you theRead More best of luck with this event! We need some youthful enthusiasm for the arts in this area. The Art Gallery of the Guild will help promote this and we will possibly open the gallery during some of the time to generate more activity.

I thought it got canceled
Matt Henry April 26, 2013 at 08:25 pm
Unfortunately the event is being rescheduled due to the overwhelming interest in this event. WeRead More would have had to turn people away due to the capacity allowed at AJs live, and we feel to do that would be going against the spirit of what were trying to do. We are currently looking for a new venue, and we will keep everyone updated! Thanks for your interest and we hope to see you at the new Half-o-ween!

When is DeMarinis' Pizzeria going to do some kind of remodeling? Thats another one of those eyeRead More sore buildings in that area. And we wonder why that side of town has been in decline over the last 30 years. Great food, ugly building.

Try running a restaurant in this economy or any economy. Great pizza but what more can you do whenRead More a small business is handicapped by the government?

Olde Mill Inn is an excellent place to eat. the food is great and the prices are reasonable.

Let's be glad a young person is paying attention. How many college student don't know who the N.Read More Korean leader is much less where N. Korea is. I'll bet he knows what the sequester is also.

Talk to your schools and ask them why these young people don't know the history about Korea ,Read More Vietnam .

And still the low informed Reuben voted for Obama

I read the book, and it was EXTREMELY predictable. It was easy to read, but stupid. I hope the movieRead More isn't really as bad as you say :(
A Reel Of One's Own March 14, 2013 at 03:34 am
Well, it pretty much is, but I guess if the right filmmakers are there it doesn't have to be. ForRead More example, I liked the movie "The Notebook," but when I read the book, I really wanted to punch Noah and Allie in the face.
Let's Roll February 27, 2013 at 02:04 pm
Also, why can't we have a breakfast place like Sawmill Inn. Awesome.

I'm always looking to try something new, any suggestions?

village bowl has one the best fish frys in town!!!!!! I love their new pangasius all you can eat forRead More $9.99.

Really Steve, the "low informed"? How about before you click on an article where youRead More clearly don't care about the subject matter, only so you can put in some snide remark where you denigrate those that enjoy some rather harmless piece of fluffy entertainment, you make sure you don't make yourself sound stupid by getting a common phrase completely wrong? And FYI, I have a Masters degree in Tax, I work hard, I watch the news and formulate my opinions based on facts, I read, I converse constructively on many different topics, and yet, I enjoy watching the Oscars, because I love movies and this is about movies. Do I fit your definition of "low informed", Mr. "I have Wisconsin with an American flag so I'm somehow smarter and more patriotic than everyone else"?
CowDung February 21, 2013 at 09:37 pm
Being 'low informed' is different than being 'low educated'.
gardengirl February 21, 2013 at 10:18 pm
Thank you Mike! I totally agree. I am in management at a major area bank and I too am lookingRead More forward to the oscars. I think it's great that there is a Wauwatosa tie and am hoping 'Beasts' wins an award. The tiny budget film is competing against others with huge budgets and major actors. You don't have to be in the movie business to enjoy watching these awards. I don't consider myself low informed OR low educated.

Killer Joe. Great cast: Matthew McConaughey; Emile Hirsch; Thomas Haden Church; and Gina Gershon.Read More Enjoyed this movie after watching it on a whim. I'm glad McConaughey takes on risky roles. Drumstick, anyone? I'd add "Flight" to my 2012 favs as well. Denzel really shows depth as the main character sentenced to a moral dilemma.
A Reel Of One's Own February 19, 2013 at 11:49 pm
Yeah, that was another major movie that I'm afraid I missed. From what I've heard it would've beenRead More on my list.
