There has been lots of chatter about why the investigation began on this again in 2013 and what new evidence can pop up etc. He married his second wife within about a year and a half of the death of Cory. He and his second wife were then divorced in 2013. One article on another news source said the second wife was contacted and said "I can't talk about it." Whether that means she was told by someone…

I can actually think of a few scenarios where malice may not even be an issue, and that would reflect very darkly on the whole situation to the community at large. As darkly as out-and-out murder? I don't know, that would be in the eye of the beholder, I suppose.

Nancy Grace is actually correct on that point. It depends on the state, but in most states you can "premeditate" if you even have a few seconds to contemplate the action before taking it. That's opposed to a pure "heat of the moment" situation where the killer literally doesn't think, just acts. That would get you down to Second Degree murder (I believe)

Once again, I don't like your proposal. Why tie it to the water bill ? Explain why if I take 10 showers a day, I should pay more for garbage service? Furthermore, If you purchace a seperate meter for water, the city cannot make you pay for sewer tax if it is used to water your garden or grass. What makes you think they can charge for garbage pick up if i use a third party? If you can remember…

Illinois agencies outline cuts if forced to make 20% reductions

5 months, 1 week ago Doug Finke, State Journal-Register

Hundreds of employees would be laid off and state facilities would close, directors said

From Doug Finke, State Journal-Register:
Hundreds of employees would be laid off, state facilities would be closed and thousands of prison inmates released without supervision, state agency directors told senators Friday during a hearing to gauge the effect of possibly severe spending cuts next year.
During a more than three-hour joint hearing of the two Senate Appropriations committees, agency after agency warned of drastic consequences should they be forced to cut their current budgets by 20 percent.
“There would be extreme consequences for the economy across Illinois,” warned Ben Winick of Gov. Pat Quinn's budget office. “Over a dozen state facilities would have to close. Thousands of state employees would have to be laid off.”
The hearing occurred just days before Quinn is scheduled to finally deliver his budget outline for the fiscal year that starts July 1. Although the administration has been mum about details of what Quinn will propose, Friday's hearing could provide some insight.
Senate President John Cullerton, D-Chicago, has estimated the next budget will have a $2.9 billion hole that will have to be filled. About $1.6 billion of that is from the expiration of a major part of the temporary income tax hike at the end of 2014. The rest is from increased expenses the state has no control over, like more money to meet contractual pay raises, increased Medicaid expenses and higher pension payments.
Senate Democrats, who estimate that will require 20 percent reductions in state agency budgets, invited agency officials to detail Friday what those kinds of cuts would do to their operations.
Department of Corrections Director S.A. “Tony” Godinez said 11 correctional centers would have to close and more than 15,000 inmates would have to be released. A budget cut that drastic would result in more than 3,000 layoffs, he said.
Department of Juvenile Justice Acting Director Candice Jones said two facilities would have to close and 263 staff members would lose their jobs.
Illinois State Police Director Hiram Grau said 30 percent of the state's force would lose their jobs. Crime lab work would be seriously delayed or not done at all, he added.
The Department of Human Services testified that more than 1,000 jobs would be cut in its various departments. In addition, rates paid to community care providers of the developmentally disabled would have to be slashed, possibly resulting in violation of various court decrees the department operates under. Basic family welfare grants would have to be reduced and additional state facilities closed.
