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.

U.S. Senator from Illinois Mark Kirk tours Blessing Hospital's stroke unit

Kirk suffered a stroke in 2012

U.S. Senator from Illinois Mark Kirk toured the Blessing Hospital Stroke unit Monday, shedding light on how important urgent care is regarding strokes.

Kirk suffered a stroke in January of 2012. Since then, he has learned how to read and walk again with the help of highly trained rehabilitation centers.

“I want to make sure that Quincy residents have outstanding stroke care without having to drive to St. Louis,” said Kirk. “I went through a stroke. I know exactly how critical time is; it’s like the difference between life and death for a lot of people.”

Kirk advised Tri-state residents to not overlook stroke symptoms such as pain in the head or loss of function on one side or the other.

“We talk about the typical farmer attitude. When they have pain, they may say ‘Oh, I’ll just ride this out.’. That’s the wrong move,” said Kirk. “At that point, some critical damage can be done to your brain if you don’t quickly get to Blessing Hospital.”

Learning how to walk and read again was the most difficult for Kirk. He still goes to rehab up to seven hours each week, but he said he doesn’t let the stroke get him down.

“For me, it’s just to serve the people of Illinois,” said Kirk. “Unless you get back in the trenches, you can’t serve them.”
