Mr. Harlow said. “It was the ‘in’ thing to swagger and threaten.”
Few played political hardball more fiercely than Mr. Colson. When a deluded janitor from Milwaukee shot Gov. George C. Wallace of Alabama on the presidential campaign trial in Maryland in May 1972, Nixon asked about the suspect’s politics. Mr. Colson replied, “Well, he’s going to be a left-winger by the time we get through.” He proposed a political frame-up: planting leftist pamphlets in the would-be killer’s apartment.
“Good,” the president said, as recorded on a White House tape. “Keep at that.”
Mr. Colson hired E. Howard Hunt, a veteran covert operator for the Central Intelligence Agency, to spy on the president’s opponents. Their plots became part of the cascade of high crimes and misdemeanors known as Watergate.
The scandal began to unravel after Mr. Hunt and five other C.I.A. and F.B.I. veterans were arrested in June 1972 after a botched burglary and wiretapping operation at Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Watergate office complex in Washington. To this day, no one knows whether Nixon authorized the break-in or precisely what the burglars wanted.
“When I write my memoirs,” Mr. Colson told Mr. Hunt in a November 1972 telephone conversation, “I’m going to say that the Watergate was brilliantly conceived as an escapade that would divert the Democrats’ attention from the real issues, and therefore permit us to win a landslide that we probably wouldn’t have won otherwise.” The two men laughed.
That month, Nixon won that landslide. On election night, the president watched the returns with Mr. Colson and the White House chief of staff, H. R. Haldeman. “I couldn’t feel any sense of jubilation,” Mr. Colson said in a 1992 television interview. “Here we were, supposedly winning, and it was more like we’d lost.”

League Baseball player Andy Replogle died April 10 in Florida. He was 58. According to his obituary, he was an employee of Estero Country Club in Estero, Fla.
Replogle pitched for two seasons for the Milwaukee Brewers. He compiled a 9-5 record with a 3.92 ERA in 1978. Replogle, a 6-5, 205-pound right hander, started 18 games that season with three complete games and two shutouts. He struck out 41 batters in 149 1/3 innings.

Gingrich would be a stronger challenger than Santorum.
So it ends for Gingrich without even a whimper. He will go through the motions of campaigning while visiting zoos (I suspect the Milwaukee County Zoo will merit a pre-primary visit) and dining in plush hotel restaurants with Callista. When the primaries are finally over, Gingrich may even be given a brief prime-time slot at the Tampa Convention if he effusively endorses the nominee and pledges not to gush about beach volleyball as he did at the 1996 GOP Convention.
But the dream that has defined Newt Gingrich’s life for more than a half century ended Saturday without fanfare in the Louisiana bayous. It has been a long journey from Verdun to being done.

The process is different.The young players are pushing the established ones. They aren't contenders yet, but the groundwork has been laid.EpilogueI was siting next to two young Milwaukee Brewer fans who were both wearing Ryan Braun uniform shirts. After making some lame joke about having them tested for excess testosterone, I enjoyed the rest of my day by telling them how glad I was that Ramirez was playing third base for them.I said you will love him when he hits .160 in April. Then when he starts to hit a few home runs, you will notice that no one is on base and you are already ahead or behind by 12 runs. Then about August, he will strike out on a pitch in the dirt that a little leaguer wouldn't swing at and he will glare into the camera like he is mad because the team is paying him millions of dollars to stink.I am so going to enjoy watching Ramirez strike out with the bases loaded or seeing Zambrano go ballistic in the dugout in Miami and know that they aren't Cubs anymore. Now if Soriano would just be traded to Baltimore to be their designated hitter, my dream would come true.

Lebanon, forthcoming next month from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.
A native of Oklahoma City, Shadid graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He joined the AP in Milwaukee in 1990, worked on the International Desk in New York and served as the AP's news editor in Los Angeles. He was transferred to Cairo in 1995, covering stories in several countries.
AP Senior Managing Editor John Daniszewski, who worked with Shadid in Baghdad during the U.S. invasion in 2003, called him "a brilliant colleague who stood out both for his elegant writing and for his deep and nuanced understanding of the region."
"He was calm under fire and quietly daring, the most admired of his generation of foreign correspondents," Daniszewski said.
Martin Baron, the editor of the Globe, for whom Shadid worked while at that newspaper, told the Times that Shadid had a "profound and sophisticated understanding" of the Middle East.
"More than anything, his effort to connect foreign coverage with real people on the ground, and to understand their lives, is what made his work so special," Baron said. "It wasn't a matter of diplomacy: it was a matter of people, and how their lives were so dramatically affected by world events."
Ralph Nader, the former third-party presidential candidate, called Shadid "a great, great reporter."
"His courage, stamina, intellect and extraordinary powers of observation respected his readers' intelligence while elevating his profession's standards," the longtime consumer advocate said in a statement.
Nader added in a phone call to the AP that he knew Shadid from his time at The Washington Post and had met his family.
"What a loss," he said.
A hearse brought Shadid's body Friday to a forensic science institute in Adana, in southern Turkey, where an autopsy was to be performed, the state-run Anatolia news agency reported. Hicks and a plain-clothed Turkish military official accompanied the hearse, it said.
Hicks refused to answer reporters' questions about his journey back to Turkey and he followed the coffin into the building, it said.
Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu posted comments about Shadid's death on his Twitter account in English.
"Not only as a good journalist but a true friend as well, Anthony Shadid's death put me in sorrow. Knowing that at the very final moments ... of his life, he was looking for truth," Davutoglu wrote.
Shadid had been reporting in Syria for a week, gathering information on the resistance to the Syrian government and calls for Syrian President Bashar Assad to step down, the Times said. The exact circumstances and location of his death were unclear, it said.
Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson sent a note to the newsroom Thursday evening, relaying the news of Shadid's death and remembering him.
"Anthony died as he lived — determined to bear witness to the transformation sweeping the Middle East and to testify to the suffering of people caught between government oppress...

General stories about the North Shore come from one editor and a few writers who cover a considerable bit of geographic territory. It provides basic and special interest information for all Milwaukee North Shore suburbs. Obituaries, marriage and birth notices are available (some fee for service). NOW is owned by Journal Communication, and for most of the communities, is only available in paper version through an insert in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
NOW, along with its parent paper's online version JSOnline, has recently changed its commenting system, which seems set up to limit the amount of pseudonym or anonymous posting, and encourages users to link to their actual identities via Facebook, and add a photograph.
“Please notify us if you see personal insults or other irresponsible comments. We reserve the right to eliminate any comments and block any commenter who is not civil and respectful of others," the website says.
Shorewood Ripples is the high school's newspaper. The publication used to have a print and online version but currently appears only available via print. High school students write it with the target audience of high school students. Traditionally, Ripples has been the paper of record in Shorewood, WI.
Shorewood Today — This quarterly magazine features business advertisements, village news, school updates, deeper stories about Shorewood businesses and profiles, high quality paper and photographs. The Shorewood Village Marketing Group, in partnership with the Business Improvement District and others, manage it locally.
We have engaged community members who read and comment
Sometimes, the comments take on a life of their own. People have referred to the Patch, to me, as a blog. This has confused me, but my own husband explained it this way.
“The stories are the starter," he said. "The comments turn it into a blog, with a few regular commenters going back and forth on an issue like other blogs do.”
Some comments seem to arrive within seconds of the stories themselves. And we have non-community members who seem to enjoy, and comment anonymously and often on, Shorewood stories.
Very few stories that are online and allow comments go without comment.
The down side of engaged readers — commentary can be very disturbing, overshadowing in some cases the very stories themselves. Anonymity can help get good information, or it can encourage non-productive discussion.
One Shorewood resident who wished to remain anonymous said, “I think y...
