    A Fox Lake letter to the editor: I was absolutely delighted to open my paper on Oct. 23 and see your editorial, “A chance to inspire, not scare, voters.” After being bombarded nightly with negative ad after negative ad, I turned to my husband yesterday and said, “Wouldn’t you think it would be more productive if these guys would use their airtime to tell us about the good things they can do for us? At this point, I have no idea who the better candidate is because according to these TV ads, they are both lying scumbags!”

  • A change in the rules is in order Oct 27, 2014 5:01 AM
    An Arlington Heights letter to the editor: I firmly believe that we all must have freedom of speech. What I do not believe in is for any person, party or political action committee to air out-and-out lies on our so-called “public airwaves.” I really do not believe our Founding Fathers would condone this despicable behavior, nor do I or most of the voting public. Both sides, Democrats and Republicans, are equally guilty.

  • Keep Duckworth in our corner Oct 26, 2014 5:01 AM
    An Elk Grove Village letter to the editor: “If it’s not broken, don’t fix it.” Everyone has heard this old saying, and still there are those who just want things “their way.” This is how I feel about the election — especially in the 8th Congressional District where Congresswoman Tammy Duckworth has served, and I do mean served, the residents with dignity and pride.

Yet the Daily Herald seems unable to connect the dots between decades of de facto single-party control and Illinois’ abysmal economic climate.
