I agree that name calling is not conducive to reasoned discussion. Try this information and let us know of counter arguments. http://patriotpost.us/opinion/19138 It confirms what I've know for decades...modeling (of most all types) is horrible and, in particular, doing future planning on chaotic (e.g. weather) modeling systems…

How does calling someone's beliefs "moronic" advance the conversation at all? Just because there is disagreement on a topic does not mean those who disagree with you is a moron. What is unfortunate is that type of name-calling often replaces robust discussion...just because you think you're right, doesn't necessarily make it so.

City might not want to allow the development at 36th and Harrison. I do believe this would be on the same sewer lines that end up at 26th & Harrison and flooded multiple homes a few years ago.

Illinois group targets lawsuit abuse

Madison, St. Clair and Cook Counties are known as "judicial hell-holes"

The Illinois Lawsuit Abuse Watch group stopped in Quincy Monday to discuss the effects of lawsuit abuse in the area.

Illinois Lawsuit Abuse Watch is a grassroots legal watchdog group that focuses on educating the public about the adverse effects of lawsuits.

Travis Akin with Illinois Lawsuit Abuse Watch said that everyday people are affected.

“Even if you’ve never been sued or gone through a lawsuit yourself, lawsuit abuse still has an impact on your daily life. It affects the prices of goods and services, you relationships with your friends and families because that threat of litigation is always out there.”

According to a report from Harris Interactive, Illinois is ranked 46 out of 50 states on legal fairness.

“We need reform. Part of the reason Illinois has hellhole jurisdictions is because we don’t have any meaningful reforms on the books. What reforms we have been able to get through the legislature have been overturned by the court.”

Akin says jurisdictions are singled out because there is enough of abuse there to bring the whole state of Illinois down.

 “It affects our business climate, it effects business decisions that companies make because companies don’t want to make it easier to get dragged into a courtroom. What makes this lawsuit abuse to prevalent is that Judges allow these things to continue.”
