Martin Re: Michael Savage’s commentary on Autism - Statement by the Autism Society of Wisconsin This week, talk show host Michael Savage made inaccurate and derogatory comments about autism on his radio show, calling the condition “a fraud” and the result of a lack of parental discipline. Mr. Savage’s unsubstantiated comments reflect the misconceptions of over 50 years ago, that autism was caused by “refrigerator mothers” or unemotional parenting, which have been completely disproven by the scientific community. Autism is a neurodevelopmental medical condition that requires early identification and lifelong treatment. ]]> Meat Production and Climate Impact - More impact than from auto manufacturing Summerfest did the right thing - Bill Christofferson, Milwaukee Poison Food - Max Dyer, Milwaukee Act on Impeachment - Gary Drescher, Milwaukee Damage to U.S. Credibility - Minnie Frew, Greendale Ryan's Plan is Laughable - Ray Bender, MD, Mequon Protest Beef Subsidies - Marcus Armand, Milwaukee I agree with Mr. McNally that the government spits on vets - Bob Schweitzer Preservation of the Milwaukee River - The 7th grade students at Tamarack Waldorf School Senator McCain and the GI Bill - Ed Lopez Congress is the culprit! - Nancy Barker Brennan Impeachable Offenses - Walter Wilson, Glendale Eloquent Article on Hilary Hahn - Thallis Hoyt Drake, Milwaukee Oprah Goes Vegan - Max Dyer, Milwaukee My take is that once again the Shep leads the way in publishing - W.S., Milwaukee Ice Cream Truck Noise Pollution - Rick Eells, Milwaukee Shepherd Fan Wants Kenosha Delivery - Deb, Kenosha Impeachment is our responsibility - Ray Hallstrand, Milwaukee Illogic of the Shepherd Express Expresso - G.A.

And rightly so- there will absolutely be a 2008 Milwaukee International Film Festival, and 2009, 2010, 2011- you get the idea. You do a great disservice to the tens of thousands of Festival attendees when you suggest that the Festival will not take place. Milwaukee’s Future Foundation has not “shut off funding” of the Festival, and there will always be plenty of funding for such a great event- and one so important to Milwaukee’s stature as a city with offerings every bit as diverse as Chicago or Minneapolis. ]]> - Marcus Armand, Milwaukee Supervisor Jursik an independent voice and balance to County Exe - Alexis Gassenhuber, Oak Creek Open Season on Shoplifters? - David J.

But yesterday, the first major primary after SuperTuesday, after Republicans narrowed to one candidate, something far more insidious and destructive happened. ]]> I am witness to your political ideology - Stephen Wisconsin’s voters should support Senator Barack Obama - William R.

Giant strides have been made, including pumping up the wattage output. ]]> Iraq, Trickle Down Economics, Energy Costs - John P.
