Violence against violence only leads to more violence. Perhaps putting Soros or others responsible behind bars with the criminal element of the black community would be more justified than outright slaughtering of possibly innocent protesters.

One bid was from Quincy and one was from out of town. The bids were almost identical. Apparently the new manager didn't even "want" to take this to bid. So if we are paying some project manager from out of town who is hesitant or incapable of using RFP's effectively then the problems have already started without so much as a shovel getting a scratch on it.

Mr. Letterman's heartfelt 2002 appreciation of the late/great Warren Zevon is some of the best television that I have ever seen (Gawker posted an article about it earlier today, and I can honestly say that it still gives me chills to watch those clips.) http://gawker.com/remembering-warren-zevon-on-let...

Rutherford charges Rauner behind allegations against him; Rauner denies it

Bizarre sequence of events in GOP gubernatorial campaign

From from suntimes.com:

In an announcement rocking the Republican gubernatorial primary race, Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford contended Friday that his opponent, millionaire businessman Bruce Rauner, paid an attorney who demanded $300,000 from him on behalf of a Rutherford employee making allegations against him.

Rutherford said at a news conference that the allegations are false but declined to describe them. They were made last week by a current employee in the treasurer’s office, Rutherford said.

Rutherford said he has launched an independent investigation into the allegations and accused Rauner of trying to destroy him.

“I’m going to turn this back on him,” Rutherford said. “I find this to be very, very offensive. ... Illinois politics is hardball.”

Rauner’s campaign denies having anything to do with the allegations against Rutherford.

“Treasurer Rutherford should spend his time answering the serious claims made against him by a state employee, rather than trying to distract attention with false claims against us,” Rauner spokesman Mike Schrimpf said.
