We give a ton of money to Airports and to promote air travel. We talk about being "green" so what do they want me to do "drive" to Chicago and use up a bunch of gas and pollute the air?

Must be a Corp. thing. I was in there a couple of Sunday's ago and there was line waiting to get in with all the tables full. This was before noon. Doesn't make sense to me.

Only because of the weak GOP leadership in the house and senate. Just read today where Orin Hatch and a couple other republicans (regarding King Vs Burwell) are trying to come up with a temporary funding deal for the states that went through the federal exchanges rather than create their own so what the IRS is doing is legal. So are we trying to do away with Obama care or not?

Misplacing anger? You said it yourself this is coming from the executive branch, the presidents branch. Although he may not be directly involved, the work of his minions makes him indirectly involved. When you fight organized crime you don't stop just because you have caught the underlings doing the work of the big boss. He is just as guilty as those he hires to pull the trigger. So to say…

The basis of our governments being the opinion of the people, the very first object should be to keep that right; and were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter. -- Thomas Jefferson, letter to Edward Carrington, 1787.

Our government, at all levels, has forgotten the media works for the people, not for them. –Bob Gough, in a bar, 2011. 

Bob’s life has pretty much remained within a 70 mile radius of his hometown of Perry, Missouri, but he enjoys visiting  St. Louis, Columbia, Mo. and Puerto Vallarta.  

He was born in Hannibal and grew up in Perry. He traveled in the opposite direction of a man who was born in Florida, Missouri 130 years earlier and grew up in Hannibal-Samuel Langhorne Clemens.

Bob graduated Mark Twain High School in 1985 and from the University of Missouri School of Journalism in 1989. He has been in the Quincy media market since 1990 and has done nearly every job imaginably in local television, radio, newspaper and, of course, Internet. 

Bob is a strong believer in open government and his blogs and stories are a must-read for those in the Quincy media and political circles.

When he is not making someone really mad, he is married to his wife Ellen, who he also makes really mad sometimes, and they have three kids-Alex, Michelle and Scott.
