  • Decline of the dealmakers Dec 18, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Stephen and Cokie Roberts: With the defeat of Sen. Mary Landrieu in Louisiana, not a single Democrat from the Deep South will hold a Senate seat come January. That stark fact represents the last chapter of a long story that has been altering American politics for more than a half-century.

     
  • Tale of a firestorm in the courts Dec 18, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: First there’s the spark, then the conflagration, followed by the litigation and then, surely, the movie. Call it “Moonlight Fire,” and prepare to suspend disbelief.

     
  • Turkey’s president not fit for office Dec 18, 2014 12:01 AM
    A Glen Ellyn letter to the editor: Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has recently stated that women are not equal to men and that the true purpose of a woman is to be a mother. “It is against nature,” he said on why women are not equal to men. This is outrageous.

     
  • We’re a society crippled by caffeine Dec 18, 2014 12:01 AM
    A Glen Ellyn letter to the editor: When walking down the street or through the halls of a school, you’ll see several caffeinated drinks in people’s hands. Nowadays people seem solely dependent on coffee and other caffeinated drinks to function on a daily basis, and this doesn’t seem like a positive trend.

     
  • Don’t surrender reason to religious extremists Dec 18, 2014 1:01 AM
    A Mundelein letter to the editor: I would like to respond to Robert Clark’s Nov. 30 letter titled “Message of religion went off track.” Looking at the history of most religions, one finds an unfortunate record of atrocities.

     
  • Separation of church, state a value to keep Dec 18, 2014 1:50 PM
    A Palatine letter to the editor: The religious right’s continuous efforts to inject their brand of religion into our schools, government and way of life is both disturbing and dangerous. It has created a backlash causing the pendulum to swing from a comfortable “reasonably acceptable” to an annoying “politically ridiculous.”

     
  • Police killings no excuse for riots Dec 17, 2014 12:01 AM
    A Glen Ellyn letter to the editor: The AP reprint in today’s paper, “Data on police killings scarce,” is just one more example of the disgustingly biased liberal journalism that seems to pervade today’s “mainstream media.” A more real story would seem to be how does the black community reduce its crime rates and respect others (including cops)?

     
  • CIA torture needed, none of our business Dec 17, 2014 12:01 AM
    An Elgin letter to the editor: The CIA detainees’ torture report should never have been released. These Islamic religious zealots are at war with America and the western peoples and they want us dead. After 9/11 with thousands of innocent people dead, we had to get information from the combatants we captured to be able to annihilate the enemy.

     
  • For a politics of repair Dec 17, 2014 1:01 AM
    Columnist Michael Gerson: The just-ending 113th Congress was not, by most measures, productive. But its endgame was at least instructive.

     
  • Our cyber nightmares Dec 17, 2014 1:01 AM
    Columnist Richard Cohen: This story is not about whether Angelina Jolie is indeed a minimally talented prima donna or whether Jennifer Lawrence was underpaid but an attempt to silence political satire. The film, I’m told, is funny. The effort to ruin it is not.

     
  • Get the whole truth on Ukraine press Dec 17, 2014 1:01 AM
    A Round Lake Beach letter to the editor: As eyewitness to events at Kiev’s Maidan Square in February of this year, the popular protest did not fell the corrupt-but nevertheless-democratically elected President Yanukovych but an armed coup by fascist and neo-fascists of the extreme Right Sector (Praviy Sector).

     
  • Avoid use of plastic in holiday events Dec 17, 2014 1:01 AM
    A Grayslake letter to the editor: Please consider the environment when planning holiday celebrations and shopping. Household waste increases 25 percent from Thanksgiving to Christmas.

     
  • Editorial: The worrisome news on teens and e-cigs Dec 17, 2014 5:01 AM
    Teens are increasingly using e-cigarettes and that is not a good trend, a Daily Herald editorial says.

     
  • Two writers misguided on protests, wages Dec 17, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Streamwood letter to the editor: Tracy McGrath in her letter of Dec. 2 says that a protester who walks out of a Ferguson, Mo., store (looting) with goods is clearly not a protester but a criminal. Excuse me? How does she know that? Yes, a looter is a criminal, taking things that don’t belong to him/her, but how does Tracy know that this person is not among the protesters? Simply, she cannot know that unless she was there when this occurred.

     
  • GOP is sidestepping what Americans want Dec 17, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Schaumburg letter to the editor: One item that American people want is comprehensive immigration reform. Last session, the Senate passed such a bill 68-32 in a vote that included 14 Republican senators. The bill was sent to the House where an informal poll showed that it would easily pass, but Speaker John Boehner never brought the bill to the floor for a vote. Now, with a record Republican majority in the House, there is virtually no hope for passage in the next two years.

     
  • Thanks for support of Naperville Lions Dec 16, 2014 12:01 AM
    On behalf of the members of the Naperville Noon Lions Club, I would like to thank the citizens of Naperville and surrounding communities and our sponsors for the overwhelming support which was shown for our 17th annual Turkey Trot.

     
  • ECC remembers Topinka fondly Dec 16, 2014 12:01 AM
    An Elgin letter to the editor: As praise and accolades continue to come in for Illinois Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka following her tragic death, Elgin Community College also would like to recognize her as a trailblazer and for her tireless dedication to Illinois. She was an ideal example of a true public servant.

     
  • Why so easy on Cantore? Dec 16, 2014 12:01 AM
    An Aurora letter to the editor: After reading the editorial opinion Dec. 10, I was thinking what a good interview DuPage Forest Preserve President Joseph Cantore would be for a follow-up.

     
  • Senators, lead out against carbon pollution Dec 16, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Northbrook letter to the editor: Where are Sen. Dick Durbin and Sen. Mark Kirk on the climate issue? Apparently, they are voting for business as usual by their lack of visibility. When our own Congress fails to let the marketplace reduce our carbon emissions at no cost to the taxpayers by implementing a carbon fee and dividend approach to pollution, we need to ask who they answer to.

     
  • Leaders have failed to protect American jobs Dec 16, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Des Plaines letter to the editor: We sat back for 40 years, like lambs going to slaughter, while our government failed to protect economic development opportunities for folks to better their lives. We watched as the steppingstone, living-wage jobs moved to Asia. We were told education and higher-paying jobs would fill the gap. It has for some, but not for most.
