It absolutely is okay with me and in fact it makes good sense. Rudi Guilianni proved in New York that you can lower felony crime rates dramatically by enforcing minor violations. This might be news to you but people who rob, rape, steal, murder, do drugs, have warrants are not sticklers for following traffic laws or other seemingly inconsequential laws. Making MORE traffic stops is a good police…

State of the State address to focus on economy

7 months, 3 weeks ago From dailyherald.com

From From dailyherald.com:

Gov. Pat Quinn's State of the State address Wednesday gives the Democrat a pulpit to take some of the 2014 political attention back from the four Republican candidates for governor who have been criticizing him.

He's likely to spend at least some time on recent political victories, including signing last month a law cutting public workers' pension benefits.

"It will be jobs, jobs and what's necessary to create jobs," she said.
