Who would you most like to meet? For me, someday I'll meet my other kids
When I meet people, I like to ask them “Who is the one person you’d most like to meet?” Since many people I know are Christians, most of them reply with “Jesus.” OK, yeah. Me too. The reason I ask this question is because it’s an easy way to dig a little deeper into who... Read more »

Possible Absentee Ballot Fraud In Chicago?

Possible Absentee Ballot Fraud In Chicago?
One of Chicago’s unfortunate-but-true reputations is that it is known for voter fraud.

Which celebrities are liberal or conservative (or confused)?

Which celebrities are liberal or conservative (or confused)?
My daughter is reading a book called “Are You Liberal? Conservative? Or Confused?” It’s a book that discusses political labels.

Moody Church senior pastor Erwin Lutzer to retire
This isn’t exactly breaking news since Dr. Erwin Lutzer made the announcement during The Moody Church’s Sunday, January 4, 2015 service, which is now nearly two weeks after (as of this writing). However, given that a Google search shows no other news item about it, I guess it’s still breaking news of sorts: after faithfully... Read more »

Time for mainstream media to come clean about the bias of their 'political analysts'

Time for mainstream media to come clean about the bias of their 'political analysts'
As the media provide coverage of Illinois governor Bruce Rauner’s inauguration, it dawned on me how the media tries to hide the political affiliations of their so-called “political analysts.” The problem Currently, news stations have “political analysts” and “political reporters” who are very biased to the side which they agree with.

Meh grade for the Bears' hire of Ryan Pace as GM, after two days of reflection

Meh grade for the Bears' hire of Ryan Pace as GM, after two days of reflection
