Well he certainly covered some ground unlike his partner. I would certainly love to commend both the Marshals and local authorities on well conducted communications in an expedited effort to capture Kelly despite him quickly heading south eastward.

It's a cascading problem. Starting in the late 70s, early 80s, hunting became less and less. Parents stopped teaching their kids about firearms and gun safety, and the world because more suburban. Now those kids are adults and the only thing they know about guns is what they get in movies. And so they teach their kids that guns are bad, and the problem worsens. It's not any one thing causing…

Well I'm certainly glad I've long since lost/misplaced my childhood super soakers and cap gun. I'd hate to think I could potentially be punished by law for having had those 'out in the yard'. Yet again, policy makers grasping for straws. What next? My metallic painted handcuffs that have a release switch on the side? Are they going to deem my having those as impersonating…

Wait... we're out of the recession? Why, because Obama says so? Comes as a surprise to most of us, I'm sure.

Because they also push those who don't qualify to sign up. You really think 58% of the kids come from families that can't afford lunches? I know people who take yearly family vacations and have a boat sitting in their driveway that are on free/reduced. If they truly "qualify" based on the guidelines, then there are problems with the guidelines. Also, just because the guidelines allow you…

Quinn makes minor cuts to $35.7 billion Illinois budget

3 weeks, 3 days ago from Associated Press

Gov. Pat Quinn has used his line-item veto power to make minor cuts to a $35.7 billion state budget plan he has called "incomplete."

In a statement Monday, Quinn says he's eliminating $250 million for renovations of the state Capitol. The Chicago Democrat also says the state will sell nearly half its airplanes.

Lawmakers passed the spending plan for the fiscal year that begins Tuesday after Democratic leaders couldn't find enough votes to extend Illinois' temporary income tax increase. Quinn had lobbied in favor of the extension in the midst of a tough re-election campaign against Republican Bruce Rauner, who opposes it.

The lawmakers' plan doesn't allocate enough money to cover state expenses. It uses special funds for day-to-day operations and banks on possible future increases in revenue.
