All I want to say is this: I said months ago that there was a ban on gun research and no oneRead More believed me. I don't care what his studies say. I'm just glad this article finally says in it's first sentence what I have been saying for a long time. Small victory for moi! I'm off for some ice cream!

Oldtimer -- They took away all of the weapons in Britain and now they have the highest incidence ofRead More knife stabbings in the world. It is not the guns it is the evil in the thugs that causes these deaths. If a thug knows you are armed he will not cross you but if they know you don't have a weapon you are game to them. Direct your research to the thugs and their families to get to the root of the problem, not the law abiding person.

Hey, Steven Spiegel, do you believe that Jewish people should stop remembering and teaching theRead More world about the horrors of the Holocaust just because it's so old and declasse to bring it up?

Thank you Alison I was thinking the same thing....

It`s just Baby fat, I had an UNCLE years ago 15 lbs and he was born at home, turned out to be aRead More regular kid.

Actually this is usually a sign of gestational diabetes. But not always....Alison and Erin. AndRead More BIGBAKER I've heard of bigger babies being born at home years ago too but that gets into the whole accuracy of the way they were weighed. My daughter weighed 9lb 1oz. I'm average size. My birth weight was around 7 pounds. My husband was a premie and weighed about 5 pounds. But he was a big man. Not huge. He was 6ft 1in and weighed about 190 at his heaviest. I'm 5' 3" and weighed 165 at full term. Sometimes the size of the baby is determined by ancestors long dead! My son weighed 7lb 12oz and he was born 4 weeks premature! Imagine where he was headed! So don't go blaming things that may have NOTHING to do with it!

Any money spent on our union infested "schools" is wasted.

If the old man does get 1st or 2nd degree murder charges, the best thing to do in a home invasion ifRead More you don't have time to call the police is to go hide in a closet and pray they don't find you (and your family) and if they DO find you, DON'T look at them!!!.... Of course unless you're an experienced gun fighter and in total control of your emotions.

When I graduated from LT in 1967 we were told that we were the second best high school in IllinoisRead More (New Trier was number one) and among the top ten nationally. Now New Trier is #15 and LT is #40?!? What has happened in the intervening decades. If the proposal to do away with class rank is any indicator I suspect my alma mater is succumbing more and more to the trendy aspects of modern education and moving away from expecting accomplishment.

@Herc, that's because Joliet high schools make you ready for McDonalds, not college.

I don't disagree with you that we're becoming less and less a free country but it's wrong to blameRead More democrats alone. It wasn't dems alone that passed the patriot act. It hasn't been dems alone that have been re-uping it since it was passed the first time. On how bad Hillary will be as a president. Every president is bad in some ways. Reagan raised taxes more than a dozen times. Bush took us to war on two fronts with no way to pay for it. Clinton signed DOMA and DADT. Obama gave away the farm in order to get the Affordable Care Act passed. Papa Bush said that atheists shouldn't be considered Americans. Sure Hillary will be a bad president in some ways.... they are all bad in some way. I can tell you this much though, any president is going to be a worse president when the publicly stated goal of the opposition is to obstruct that president at any and all opportunities. The dems did it to Bush. The republican'ts are doing it to Obama. It's like Palestine and Israel, they'll fight to the death out of spite and habit, neither one of them knowing which one threw the first punch and not caring because winning is the only goal. What America needs are citizens that go into government for the good of the country instead of the good of their party.
Michael Hipp April 24, 2014 at 02:03 pm
Oh, one last point on your last post B. Dub. "Hillary presidency combined with a DemocraticRead More Congress." Ain't gonna happen. Republicant's have gerrymandered the states to absolute death. They have the House for the foreseeable future and they have a good chance at getting the Senate. I can't guarantee you who's going to win in 2016 but I can very well guarantee you that no one party will take executive and legislative branches, both.

with caller ID they should be able to point to the caller. Sorry but an out of state telephoneRead More number should be a tip off.

The caller used Skype, via the Internet, and will probably never be found if he took certainRead More precautions unless he's running his mouth about this prank.
Bob West April 24, 2014 at 05:20 pm
@ eddie, I wouldn't mention any specific phone-calling service in case any other arseholes areRead More looking for tips. But for better or worse, those calls are traceable. They have "add-ons" that can fool your friends, but certainly not the NSA. BTW, that phone service was bought by Microsoft a couple of years ago- so much for any illusion of confidentiality. By using it, you "opt in" to give up your privacy, just like with G-mail. Using a computer to make a prank call is a dumb move in itself. Any computer transmits a wealth of information. Non-smart phones are a lot less traceable than anything else. Have you ever seen how many items advertisers and other web sites use to uniquely identify your computer? They can't tell your name but track your unique computer. It's called "computer fingerprinting." As soon as you give your name at a web site they track, they've got you. Check this site sometime to see how unique your computer is-- https://panopticlick.eff.org/ .... I suspect that nobody's putting much effort into tracing this call, because in the big scheme of things, they've got more serious things to deal with. (Unfortunately, unlike our local PDs.) Shame this idiot got so much publicity from his crime. I think the glorifying news "perp walk" should be stopped in virtually all cases.
