You two ought to wait until the facts are known before you pass judgment. You have heard of innocent until proven guilty haven't you?

Seeing the gang signs posted on the victims FB pages, I doubt the victims were 100% innocent in what occurred. No one deserves to lose their lives or be shot and the shooter should definitely be prosecuted, but I have a feeling there is more to this story than just an angry man that decided to shoot to kill two people. I don't know the story and neither do most of the people in this judgmental…

thanks for the link. So often though, descriptions of studies lean toward their preferred outcome. 40% is very low correlation, and he even concludes "environmental" factors have much greater influence. He tries to separate that from social factors, but indeed social factors are a big part of it. Interesting they found no genetic link at all in women. I think the early childhood is big, which…

In a truly free society morality is only enforced by the state when there is a victim. Prostitution, gambling, and smoking weed have no victims, hence no crime. Murder, theft and statutory rape have victims, this is why they are crimes.

Two of the four Republicans running for Illinois governor made Sunday stops in Quincy in a final push to bolster votes before Tuesday’s primary.

Bruce Rauner, considered the front-runner in many polls, stopped in at Kelly’s Tavern, 2902 Broadway, to press the flesh with patrons who had either finished the morning’s Kelly’s Fun Run or were celebrating St. Patrick’s Eve…or both.

Rauner told reporters before he entered the pub that his message was resonating.

“We’ll term-limit ourselves at 8 years because that’s what the voters want,” Rauner said. “Quincy is suffering from the bad economic policies of Pat Quinn. He’s driven up taxes and spending. He’s hurting schools and the economy.”

Sen. Kirk Dillard of Hinsdale and his running mate, State Rep. Jil Tracy of Quincy, flew into Quincy Regional Airport as part of a statewide fly-around. They had former Governor Jim Edgar in tow.

Edgar had endorsed Dillard, who served as the former governor’s chief of staff.

“(Dillard) has the ability to work across party lines...with Democrats," Edgar said. "The Legislature is going to be controlled by Democrats for many decades. We need someone to work with Democrats, not go to war with them."

Dillard said all the polls show he is surging.

"I'm the only candidate who can beat Pat Quinn," Dillard said. "The rest of these folks can't. He's not a push over. I'm the best to govern when I get there and...the Western Illnois region will be in the forefront and not Forgottonia."
