An online column demonstrates the changing times

And while we're talking content, let's note the significance of an column by Damien Jaques that sums up Milwaukee's year in theater by saying it was unlike any other in his three decades of covering theater here. It's a good column, of course (Jaques has been a premiere critic for years), but that's not what makes it significant. What does is the fact that it's published on while the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has had few words on the subject since it gutted its critic core last summer.

If content really is important, the folks at 4th and State seem to have missed the boat in their zeal to cut salaries of workers (do you suppose CEO Steve Smith will get another "retention" bonus this year like he did last year despite the company's decline in value by 80 percent?).
