What if Chicago shootings were treated like school shootings?

If you watched any national news today, swiped through social media or pick up a major newspaper tomorrow you’ll know about the lone gunman at an Oregon high school this morning who shot one student (and grazed the hip of a teacher).

In defense of the woman kicked out of a trade show for breastfeeding

Recently a small business owner was escorted out of a Chicago trade show for bringing her 10-day old infant snuggled inside her outfit.

Why can't you get mad at kids anymore?

I might lose a friend over this. Eh, she’s new. Easy go! My kids know not to mess with my stuff. I’m not even sure why. Maybe I said something in the hospital when they were born like, “craft fabric is poison to children” or “the Elf lives by the washing machine” etc. and it... Read more »

Feel like a jerk pushing a huge CostCo cart? RELIEF AT LAST!

Every once in awhile, your house just gets low on supplies. Somehow we ran out of our drum of ketchup at the same time we needed a new case of milk and a fresh stockpile of cereal. Hi, we’re suburbanites now and do that thing were we get something we like and act like the... Read more »

Chicago gun violence: Why won't anyone snitch on baby Jonylah's killer?

You have to check out the North Shore police blotter sometime. Hilarious. The worst things that happen are when some guy gets $2,000 golf clubs swiped from his garage or when unauthorized charges appear on someone’s credit card (later amended by the bank!). Okay, there was the time some kids tied up an old lady and...
