    Columnist Michael Gerson: In 1993, Lois Lowry wrote a slim book for youth about totalitarianism, euthanasia, suicide, sexual awakening and infanticide. "The Giver" created a blooming genre -- the dystopian youth novel -- and considerable controversy.

     
  • A fight for Israel’s existence Jul 23, 2014 1:01 AM

  • Extended runway would give citizens nothing Jul 23, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Wheeling letter to the editor: Mr. E. Allan Englehardt’s recent common-sense Guest View about the Chicago Executive Airport should be heeded by the CEA commission and the elected officials of Wheeling and Prospect Heights. These two towns, which own the airport, derive no income from its operations except for the taxes paid for gasoline it sells.

     
  • In heinous cases, death penalty appropriate Jul 23, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Des Plaines letter to the editor: This is a problem that is short and simple. A person has been found guilty of stabbing a family member in the face and chest; also, the daughter is sliced in many places. To me the death penalty is the proper solution.

     
  • Tea Party embarrasses nation Jul 23, 2014 12:01 AM
    A Huntlet letter to the editor: David Pinter pointed out that spending $100 million on a presidential library in Illinois is a waste since Illinois can’t provide “basic services.” I agree, the Obama Library should be privately funded. The last thing the library needs is to have Republicans, who have done everything possible to discredit the president, controlling its funding, location, size or content.

     
  • Why no change in this legislature? Jul 23, 2014 12:01 AM
    A Naperville letter to the editor: After more than 35 years of the same people running the legislature, the state of Illinois is nearly bankrupt. We have the lowest credit rating among all 50 states. We have billions of dollars in unfunded pensions for teachers and other government employees

     
  • Editorial: What’s really at stake in the furor at COD Jul 23, 2014 12:46 PM
    A Daily Herald editorial says the controversy that has erupted at College of DuPage has as much to do with vested interests as it does college President Robert Breuder’s email to the board.

     
  • Chicago only studies O’Hare noise woes Jul 22, 2014 12:01 AM
    A West Chicago letter to the editor: With all due respect to Arelene Mulder of the O’Hare Noise Compatibility Commission, the only thing the commission is doing and has done over the many years is dole out soundproofing.

     
  • Baffling high court ruling on benefits Jul 22, 2014 12:01 AM
    A Sleepy Hollow letter to the editor: How could six of seven Illinois Supreme Court justices rule that state retiree health benefits are protected when the constitution is silent on such a benefit? The unprecedented ruling was founded on the premise that it was not the intent of constitution drafters to protect “only” core pension benefits.

     
  • Editorial: Memories add strength to fabric of suburbs Jul 22, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Daily Herald editorial underscores the importance of the memories of places and events that have long since past. They are woven into the suburban fabric and are a big part of who we are as a community.

     
  • Reid owes Justice Thomas an apology Jul 22, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Mount Prospect letter to the editor: Sen. Harry Reid does not appear to be very bright; however, there may be a legitimate reason for his mendacious claims. In addressing the Supreme Court’s decision in the Hobby Lobby case, Mr. Reid stated that the decision for the women of the United States had been made by five white males.

     
  • Editors shouldn’t decide who’s right, wrong Jul 22, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Palatine letter to the editor: The July 1 letter from Jeff Slepak was very interesting. His statement at the end in which he urges everyone to use logical arguments, verifiable facts and state opinions as opinions is nice in theory, but impractical. I disagree with everything else.

     
  • Incoming kids would burden our schools Jul 22, 2014 5:01 AM
    A letter to the editor: I hear on TV that as many as 60,000 kids have come across the border in Texas, and about 1,200 more are coming every day from Central America. Some people say let them come, we should welcome them all and care for them. Other people say, is there a cost to that?

     
  • America the heartless Jul 22, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Ruben Navarrette: Before it’s too late, Americans need to turn their attention back to the children. The lost children of Central America have themselves gotten lost in the fog of debate over what should become of them. Americans started off talking about the kids, but quickly meandered into distracting conversations about politics, blame, history, ideology and government funding.

     
  • Our safety must come before compassion Jul 22, 2014 9:08 AM
    A Wheeling letter to the editor: The breaking of our immigration laws by illegal aliens is not the same thing as legal immigration of all those noncitizens who seek a better life for themselves by going through the legal application process.

     
  • Vote for candidates who oppose gambling expansion Jul 22, 2014 9:08 AM
    A Schaumburg letter to the editor: After the November elections, there will be a post-election session of the General Assembly when members, feeling either safer or having nothing to lose, create the most mischief. Then Illinois citizens will be put in jeopardy by two likely legislative actions: (1) making the hated 67% increase in the state income tax permanent; and (2) gambling expansion. Many legislators and scads of lobbyists will push for gambling expansion and assert, as did Senator Robert Rita, that gambling expansion "offers great benefits to the state and to local communities."

     
  • End the bull running and other inhumanities, too Jul 22, 2014 9:08 AM
    A Glenview letter to the editor: It’s unfortunate that a Chicago native was injured while running with bulls in Spain, but the event is atrociously inhumane to the bulls. They are tormented, abused and traumatized animals that are ultimately and savagely bludgeoned to death in a bullfight.

     
  • TV today beyond ‘a vast wasteland’ Jul 21, 2014 1:01 AM
    An Elgin letter to the editor: Over 50 years ago, Newton Minow was the chairman of the Federal Communications Commission. It was up to his people to decide if you could get your broadcasting license renewed. It was he who, in a speech, called television “a vast wasteland.” It is especially true when it comes to the news.

    A Grayslake letter to the editor: The Wrigley rooftop owners have offered the Chicago Cubs a compromise; no lawsuit if the Cubs agree to the jumbotron scoreboard and the right-field sign and drop the plans for the five additional signs that were approved by the Chicago Landmark Commission.
