WarCry - Rauner to make Quincy stop on Saturday - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Better is subjective. If you're a business owner, Rauner has said he wants to cut your business taxes to make a friendlier environment. If you hire a service, Rauner wants to create a new "Service Tax" that would hit consumers of more than 2 dozen services. We already know what Quinn's done to taxes. So I guess the answer to "better" is.......neither, really.

qfingers - Lovelace\'s first court appearance tentatively scheduled - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Hmmm....if you've ever had your wife mad at you it more-than-likely was for more than a moment :-) Premeditation to me means doing something else. Like leave the room to do something other than get the gun. And it's not reactive. Some people are slow to boil. Question is...who gets to define that? Does each state define what it means very specifically?

Ex-congressman Jackson is eligible to receive $8,700 dollars per month in disability pay due to his bipolar condition

From WLS:

August 14, 2013 (WLS) -- The ABC7 I-Team is following the money, from the jewelry, trips and clothing to the celebrity trinkets, all paid for by the Jacksons' "personal slush fund"-- to use the words of Washington's top federal prosecutor. 

The assistant head of the FBI in Washington Wednesday night says of Jesse and Sandi Jackson, "They can hide no more." For years, they hid lavish spending of campaign money, but the I-Team has learned that U.S. officials plan for the government to make money off of some of their purchases, auctioning off some of those Jackson treasures. At the same though, that very same government may also be paying ex-congressman Jackson monthly disability, and later, a pension.

First the pensions, for both Jacksons. They were public employees: his work for the federal government since being elected to Congress in 1995; her work for the City of Chicago since being elected alderman in 2007.

Ex-congressman Jackson is eligible to receive $8,700 dollars per month in disability pay due to his bipolar condition and could receive a partial federal pension of $45,000 per year once he reaches 65.
