Ferguson Decision: The Conversation Every Parent Needs To Have With Their Kids

Ferguson Decision: The Conversation Every Parent Needs To Have With Their Kids
I watched and listened as Bob McCulloch delivered the Grand Jury decision last night. The fifteen-year-old was sitting in the next room doing his homework while I watched Dancing With The Stars.  When ABC cut in with the ominous music, the kid joined me on the couch. Our family is part of the minority-we watch... Read more »

Top Nine Reasons Governor Quinn Needs to Concede

Top Nine Reasons Governor Quinn Needs to Concede
  Last night I poured myself a diet coke and munched on a bag of chips waiting to hear the last mind-numbing speech the current governor had to offer. I went to bed disappointed. I imagine I’m going to need to pop corn in anticipation of this guy’s removal from Springfield. I’m convinced his last... Read more »

Why Carol Costello And Her Double-Standard Reporting Should Not Be Tolerated

  Carol Costello pushed the women’s movement back about thirty years with the sound of her cackle. Silly Carol.  The Palin Family can find enough trouble on their own. Sarah, Bristol and the gang don’t really need any help from you or CNN. My issue with Costello is her take on the Palin police tapes-cue... Read more »

Twelve Places Harder To Enter Than The White House
Breaking News out of the Capital is week has left me unsettled. How does a knife-wielding fella get into the White House? Oh, plenty of scenarios went through my head…but I have to tell you, “through the unlocked front door while the alarm was temporarily shut off because it was too “noisy for the house... Read more »

IL Governor's Race: Quick-Give Gov Mumbles Some Discounted Cheese With His Rauner Whine
Have you caught the latest from the Quinn Camp? Yes.  I’m talking about Governor Mumbles mowing the lawn with the hand push mower.  Nice touch for all the tree-huggers pulling the Quinn Lever in November, eh? What a guy, huh? Between listening to the “Human Ambien” bullshit the public into believing he has been “busy”... Read more »

CPS Strike: I'm Just Going To Go Ahead And Say What You Are Probably Thinking

Karen is the president of the Chicago Teacher Union.  Once the contract is ratified and the teachers get the raise they want they should do two things.  One...find a new rep.  And two...chip in an buy Ms. Lewis a brassiere as a parting gift.  Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus and sadly, books are still judged by their covers.  If this is the face of the CTU...it needs an overhaul along with an attitude adjustment.
What we are witnessing here is a pissing match, you know? Oh, sure it is a circus…no doubt in my mind. But there is a side show going on at the big top. And it is a pissing match. Karen Lewis meet Rahm Emanuel. Rahm, let me introduce you to Karen. FYI…take a good look... Read more »

I don’t care if you are a member of Team Adam & Eve or Team Adam & Steve. You are entitled to your opinion and the right to eat a delicious chicken sandwich where ever you choose ~ the closer to home the better.

Jesse Jackson Jr: Hijacking A Disease Along with the Congressional Seat

Jesse Jackson Jr: Hijacking A Disease Along with the Congressional Seat
UPDATE:  I wrote this way back in November…when I suspected Triple J might use his “illness” to lighten a sentence should he be indicted and a jury find him guilty. Fast forward to May.  With a pending sentence on the horizon, sources over at Huff Post Chicago suggest exactly what I predicted.    Here is... Read more »

Blagojevich Goes To Prison: Random Thoughts And Observations
  My thoughts and observations regarding the last twenty-four hours as I watch Blago do what he does best…lead a three-ring circus from Illinois to Denver.  Apparently he read my letter yesterday. This SOB is going out “O.J. Style”. Fanfrickintastic.  Those of you who had money riding on last meal  coming from the kitchen of... Read more »

Casinos Will Not Tarnish Illinois' Reputation...It Has Been In The Crapper For Years

The City of Big Shoulders also offers athletes with danglers the size of coconuts...and even bigger egos.  Nothing yells  "Illinois-brings-over-paid-screaming-brats-to-the-arrogance-table" more than a temper tantrum thrown courtesy of Big Z.
Governor Quinn has put his “more-than-likely-purchased-at-Payless-Shoe-Store” wing tip down. Yesterday he took to the podium with a four-hundred-page bill (no doubt splattered with grease from whatever free lunch he scored the day before) and a message. The Casino Bill as it stands is not getting his signature. And, of course, ten more minutes of the... Read more »
