I was thrilled with the opportunity to write a column for a new magazine regarding some of the social issues I’ve been able to speak about since the publication of “Murder in Wauwatosa: The Mysterious Death of Buddy Schumacher” three years ago.

I knew the publisher of “Tosa Connection” when he was a wee lad living a few blocks from me in Wauwatosa. Peter Haise, one of the founders of the satirical newspaper “The Onion,” asked me if I’d contribute a column of local interest to the magazine, starting with one on my book, which is the true story of the murder of an 8-year-old Wauwatosa boy in 1925.
The initial issue of “Tosa Connection” was direct mailed to virtually every household and business in Wauwatosa in the middle of September.There are a slew of stories of local interest.
Peter, who also owns Bridgetown Framing Gallery in downtown Tosa, tells me he plans on publishing three times annually. I’m planning on contributing a column each issue on a topic of historical interest.
