You can pay some now or you can pay MORE later. Kicking the can down the road is what got the jail in the shape it's in now. Kicking the can down the road Is what got the school buildings in that shape. Kicking the can down the road Is what got Illinois in the shape it is now. Someone needs to "suck it up and accept the fact that the problem needs to be fixed now, not down the road". We need…

There are plenty of white kids east of 18th, and plenty of them are little thieves, vandals and druggies. I don't see how it would matter in what part of town this happened or what color of skin the victim has.

It is clearly an opinion piece. I'm not bashing QJ for publishing this as news, I think there are people who will read this and take it as news, since it's posted on a news site (even though it's under the opinion page). Most people won't take the time to discern. I would honestly like to see a local journalist do some good solid research (investigative journalism) on this topic…

How did a response that I did not type end up in my post? Is this a new feature. I actually was defending you by making the point that it was not a news story. I hoped that Silence would have come to that conclusion after I asked question.

There are too many kids in our society in general being ignored, unsupervised, or otherwise neglected. Whether because of broken families, no father figures or other positive influences, working single parents who don't have the time (or don't make the time), being raised by grandparents who don't have the energy, etc., these kids are left to their own devices when it comes to school…

REBEL MEDIA: Obama to shake the money tree for Our Man Dick

10 months, 1 week ago by Bob Gough

President Barack Obama returns to Chicago this week  to participate in two events for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

Obama will spend the night in Chicago and depart Friday, according to the White House.

The trip is a push for the re-election of Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, the Senate assistant majority leader.

The Chicago Tribune reports the schedule calls for Obama to attend a fundraising reception Thursday at the home of Michael and Tanya Polsky and a dinner at the home of Fred Eychaner, according to an invitation to the events.

Eychaner, the founder of the Newsweb Corp., is a top fundraiser for Obama and other Democrats.

Michael Polsky is president and CEO of Invenergy LLC, based in Chicago. The firm develops, owns and operates power generation facilities in North America and Europe, its Web site says.

Durbin and Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., who chairs the DSCC, sent out the invites, which ask for $1,000 of reception guests, $10,000 of reception sponsors, and $15,000 of reception co-chairs. Dinner costs $17,500 per person, or $35,000 per couple. Better be steak and lobster...and good beer.

Sorry, Quincy. There's not enough money down here to make Dick come see us with much regularity these days.
