  • The unattainable standard that dogs Israel Aug 20, 2014 1:01 AM
    Columnist Richard Cohen: Reagan’s wholly unrealistic idea of Israeli capabilities still haunts the Jewish state. It helps account for why the bombings of schools, hospitals and homes in Gaza are almost instantaneously denounced as war crimes — a purposeful atrocity and not, as sometimes happens in war, a mistake. Israel, some feel, is too good to be so bad.

     
  • Respect is vital to America’s success Aug 20, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Mount Prospect letter to the editor: Bravo to Mr. Gene Maril of Arlington Heights. His Aug. 4 letter (“President’s critics unfairly labeled racist”) was right on the mark. So much hypocrisy these days. Instead of disagreeing respectfully and working together for best interests of our great nation, childish, unfounded accusations fly about.

     
  • GOP interested only in discrediting Obama Aug 20, 2014 5:01 AM
    An Arlington Heights letter to the editor: If you are wondering why our Congress is so dysfunctional, perhaps you should Google this phrase: “Jan. 20, 2009 GOP meeting.” This GOP meeting took place in the Caucus Room at a Washington, D.C., restaurant and included 13 influential members of the Republican Congress and one nonmember — Newt Gingrich. Their project: How to bring Congress to a standstill regardless of how much it would hurt the American economy by pledging to obstruct and block President Obama on all legislation.

     
  • America is troubled — so do something Aug 20, 2014 5:01 AM
    An Arlington Heights letter to the editor: The national anthem, “The Star Spangled Banner,” is outdated. It was about the War of 1812. People can’t remember the words. We should adopt “America the Beautiful”; it describes our country. Or “God Bless America”; it reminds us that God cares and unfortunately we are pushing him away.

  • ‘Only’ 6 years to let Bush off the hook Aug 19, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Wheaton letter to the editor: What right does Commander-in-Chief Obama have to insert pre-emptive airstrikes and send ground troops into Iraq? Has Iraq’s democratically-elected leader Malaki asked for U.S. military aid? No. The Iraq military is doing its own airstrikes?

     
  • Using position to point fingers Aug 19, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Carpentersville letter to the editor: I should have paid more attention to the endorsements of the Tribune and Daily Herald when each characterized the state senate career of Kane County Board Chairman Chris Lauzen as quixotic.

  • Vote out politicians who have no guts Aug 19, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Rolling Meadows letter to the editor: Durbin and the other politicians of this country, both state and federal, along with the media are playing us for dummies again. They make Walgreen out to be the bad guy to divert attention from the fact that they are too gutless to close the loopholes in the tax laws. Who were the people who wrote the laws to favor certain companies, and passed various corporate welfare laws in the first place? You’re right, the same politicians who will not stand up for simplifying and making our tax laws clearer and fairer for everyone.

     
  • Expect layoffs after Walgreen’s decision to stay Aug 19, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Buffalo Grove letter to the editor: I agree totally with your conclusion, but not with other comments in your Aug. 8 editorial about Walgreen’s decision to stay in the U.S.

     
  • The more they learn about health care law, the less they like Aug 19, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Byron York: Democrats have long believed Obamacare would become more popular once it was fully in place and Americans got a chance to see it up close. So why is Obamacare less popular now than a few months ago? Because it is fully in place and Americans have had a chance to see it up close.

     
  • Dist. 87 flap about taking responsibility Aug 18, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Wheaton letter to the editor: As a retired high school principal, I know from firsthand experience the difficulty developing and then administering an athletic/activity code that attempts to hold students involved in extracurricular activities accountable for their behavior.

     
  • Immigration must be done properly Aug 18, 2014 5:01 AM

  • President has a lot to put up with Aug 18, 2014 5:01 AM
    An Arlington Heights letter to the editor: What a lot of hogwash by the writer who recently claimed President Obama has caused the illegal immigration of children from the south. What would you do, sir, if you were the president dealing with a recalcitrant GOP that blocks everything you try to do?

     
  • Gutierrez fails to serve Illinoisans Aug 18, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Palatine letter to the editor: I was of the impression that Congressman Luis Gutierrez was elected by citizens in the Illinois 4th Congressional District. I was unaware that he also represents El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala. I wonder if the people in the 4th District feel they are truly being represented by Mr. Gutierrez since he seems to spend the majority of his time running around the U.S. arguing for the rights of the millions who have broken U.S. law by coming here illegally.

     
  • Financial clout shouldn’t win votes Aug 18, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Bartlett letter to the editor: While it is easy to criticize officials currently in office on all levels — county, state and federal — I believe if Bruce Rauner were truly honest and sincere in his quest to help the state of Illinois, instead of finding fault Rauner could use his personal wealth to take Illinois out of debt.
