eaglebeaky - Mike Flynn Makes It Official.. - Quincy, IL News -
Agreed 100%, DukeOfQuincy!!! I know that I'm likely in the minority on this matter when I say this (because Mike Flynn is an inexplicably-popular alternative to Darin LaHood or any of the other hopefuls)... but I believe that there should absolutely be some sort of a residency requirement for political candidates. (It really wouldn't be THAT much of an imposition to merely require that…
qfingers - Is \'thug\' the new N-word? Debate rages over language - Quincy, IL News -
Of all the things to worry about from any side of this situation semantics seems like a "How can I add fuel to the fire" statement instead of being anything constructive at all. The tortured response from Baltimore's mayor was really ridiculous...apologized for calling them thugs and failed to offer any other term other than tortuous multi-word description. From noun 1. a cruel…

jungle65 - Quincy Fire Station #6 set to shut down - Quincy, IL News -
How about the Mayor taking away the aldermen insurance, no one should be getting insurance for the hours they put in or how about cutting the number of aldermen in half? This would allow the fire station to remain open which is way more important than the aldermen and may allow for both QFD and QPD to add some bodies!

Tales From City of Hope #11: We Have Liftoff

15 hours, 43 minutes ago

Yesterday's white blood count went from just under 0.1 to just over 0.1. Let's call it 0.05 growth. Today's count is 0.2. That's growth of 0.1. And that, my friends, is exponential growth. Sure, we could use another data point or three. And some more significant digits. And if we're being picky, a coefficient…

Tales From City of Hope #10: Rebound Is Here!

1 day, 16 hours ago

Yesterday my white blood count was <0.1. How much less? No telling, but my doctor called it an "honorary" 0.1. But! Today my count is 0.1. Not much difference, you say, but it doesn't matter. It's higher than yesterday, and that means my transplanted stem cells are busily engrafting themselves and morphing…
