Let's just hope that certain people aren't involved. Like the mother of a little boy that was murdered last spring. Her name was all over the scanner this morning. That would be a sad little circle if she was somehow involved in this. She has a black car, and lives right where the car was stopped. hopefully we have come a little farther in life than that. Please.

Chicago no longer has the toughest gun laws in the country. Regarding handguns, they have the same laws as the rest of the state. That was part concealed carry law in 2013, eliminating "home rule" laws regarding handguns. It doesn't matter, though, because regardless of what gun laws are in place or not, it's still illegal to shoot people in almost all circumstances.

"Tree scape". A fiscal conservative would at least postpone an elective expense like this. Time to re-build cash reserves, then prioritize.

One of he few that stands up for what he believes. I don't think any want to take him on head to head but hide behind the procedural rules. Senate is a joke with McConnell, no better than Reid. He lied to get re elected in his state so why would Senate be different?

Makes one wonder if McConnell is a republican or the new democrat Harry Reid? McConnell apparently supports the baby butchers, illegal alien criminals, crony capitalism through E/I bank and obstructive legislative leadership. In other words, nothing has changed in congress with the GOP in charge.

Men's Wearhouse raises offer for Jos. A. Bank

1 year, 5 months ago from Chicago Tribune

From from Chicago Tribune:

Men's Wearhouse Inc. raised its offer for Jos. A. Bank Clothiers Inc. by more than 10 percent, nearly two weeks after its smaller rival looked to fend off the unsolicited bid by agreeing to acquire Eddie Bauer.

Men's Wearhouse raised its cash tender offer to Jos. A. Bank shareholders to $63.50 per share, from $57.50, and added it could increase the offer to $65.00 if it was able to conduct limited due diligence.

Jos. A. Bank shares rose as much as 13.4 percent to $62.45 in premarket trading, while Men's Wearhouse stock rose as much as 7.7 percent to $48.59.

Men's Wearhouse said the amended offer is conditional on the termination of Jos. A. Bank's agreement to acquire outdoor clothing retailer Eddie Bauer.

Men's Wearhouse also said it had filed a lawsuit in the Delaware Chancery Court alleging that the Jos. A. Bank board breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders by adopting measures to “thwart” Men's Wearhouse's tender offer.

Under the lawsuit, Men's Wearhouse said it seeks to prevent Jos. A. Bank from proceeding with the Eddie Bauer acquisition and wants the Jos. A. Bank board to revoke its poison pill.

Jos. A. Bank was not immediately available for comment.
