Paul is correct. Tim passed some months ago. You must have missed it. Here is the post for your information -
Tim Cuprisin, the veteran Milwaukee media columnist/critic and Chicago native, has passed away at the age of only 53. He died in his home in a northern suburb of Milwaukee earlier today, after a short, but losing battle with advanced melanoma.
A journalist for over 30 years, Tim Cuprisin began his media career in his home town at Chicago's City News Bureau in the late 70s. A few years later, he found employment to the north and began working for the Green Bay Press-Gazette. Cuprisin spent some time working for USA Today, before joining the Milwaukee Journal in 1986. In July 2009, he was among a large group of journalists and columnists who took a contract buyout from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (as it became known starting in 1995), as the newspaper cut back dramatically on its staffing to save costs. Soon after, Cuprisin brought his daily media column online and began blogging for OnMilwaukee.com.
