Bullies Are Society's Fault

School is starting in a few short weeks, and while many parents are happy to get back into the routine, just as many kids are dreading the coming school year.

The Human Allergy

I have discovered, or rather admitted, I have a potentially life altering allergy. They say the first step in addressing a problem is  identifying the fact you have one.

Religion and Abortion

I would like to have an intelligent, dispassionate conversation on religion and abortion. Yeah, I know I’m asking a lot.

    Denise Williams

    Born and bred in Chicago, now living in the wilds of far suburbia. I'm a Gold Star Mom, a wife and step-mom to two terrific boys. My views are generally politically and socially conservative, though I am far from a Party line Republican. I believe in this country, our Constitution and above all, in the right of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I believe our government is supposed to serve the people, not tell them how to live. To me, this is just common sense, but since it seems to be a minority opinion, it has become "Uncommon Sense".
