    A Gurnee letter to the editor: It is now time for the McCaskeys to sell the Bears; replacing Trestman, Emery, Tucker and Cutler will not solve the problem.

     
  • The missing students of Mexico Nov 16, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Ruben Navarrette: NewsMexico is suffering a national tragedy, the details of which make the Day of the Dead look like a walk in the park. And, for some Mexican officials, keeping up with the gruesome details can be exhausting.

     
  • New voting regulations may be deciding elections Nov 16, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Catherine Rampell: Voter suppression efforts may have changed the outcomes of some of the closest races this month. And if the Supreme Court lets these laws stand, they will continue to distort election results going forward.

     
  • Soldier’s story shows who our real heroes are Nov 16, 2014 5:00 AM
    A Palatine letter to the editor: This past Veterans Day (as in every Veterans Day) my memory took me back to April 1955 as I was returning on a troop ship from several years of service in occupied Germany. The ship was the Private William H. Thomas. I was curious as to why a ship would be named after an army private. I soon found the ship’s plaque, and my curiosity turned to tears and an enormous sense of pride in this young American.

     
  • Editorial: For leaders who are listening, two examples of what not to do Nov 16, 2014 5:01 AM

  • It’s important to learn about wealth gap Nov 15, 2014 1:01 AM
    A Grayslake letter to the editor: People are not becoming “brainwashed” against wealthy people.

  • Correct problem of Affordable Care Act Nov 15, 2014 1:01 AM
    A Grayslake letter to the editor: Obama’s Affordable Care Act has become unaffordable. Blue Cross Blue Shield just increased our premiums by 28 percent for 2015.

     
  • Obama adept at hiding his failures Nov 15, 2014 5:00 AM
    An Arlington Heights letter to the editor: What does one call a president who threatens unilateral action on immigration before the new Congress is even seated and after six years of doing absolutely nothing? A professor who cannot be taught, a politician who cannot be chastened, or an egomaniac who is undeterred by reality?

     
  • Madigan, Democrats will still govern this state Nov 15, 2014 5:00 AM
    A Schaumburg letter to the editor: I am among those trying to assess the meaning of November’s election. As a conservative viewing national election results, I’m encouraged that so many voters finally woke up and repudiated President Obama’s arrogance, detachment and wrongheaded policies — after his promised “hope” degenerated into hopelessness.

     
  • Liberals eager to destroy coal industry Nov 15, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Carol Stream letter to the editor: In light of the comments from John Gruber which sounded more like a brag on how they deceived the public over Obamacare we should all be skeptical on whatever comes down the road from this administration.

     
  • The Soapbox Nov 15, 2014 5:01 AM

  • Ready to vote for candidates who listen Nov 20, 2014 1:01 AM
    A Lindenhurst letter to the editor: I will be turning 18 this year, which will make me eligible to vote in the April elections. I find it disappointing that so many people fail to exercise their right to vote

     
  • O’Hare runway plan ignores our weather Nov 14, 2014 5:01 AM
    A McHenry letter to the editor: Brisk, steady north winds brought mayhem and gridlock to O’Hare on Halloween with more than 700 cancellations nationwide due to an inoperable runway layout, the net result of a misguided modernization plan.

     
  • Maybe some day for Glen Ellyn pool Nov 14, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Glen Ellyn letter to the editor: Recently, the residents of the Glen Ellyn Park District voted to bypass the opportunity to build an indoor aquatics center annexed to Ackerman Sports and Fitness. While I am very disappointed, I wanted to pass along my sincere gratitude and appreciation for the passion and tireless effort put forth by my fellow Glen Ellyn Aquatics Initiative team members,

     
  • Two-party system has run its course Nov 14, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Des Plaines letter to the editor: The elections are behind us for better or for worse. The campaign ads and debates were nasty and downright disrespectful. Many of the people who ran for office and incumbents too were accusing each other of dishonesty. So, we the voters probably select our party’s candidate, or the one we think lies the least. That’s not the way to run a country!

     
  • Just how important is your vote? Nov 14, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Schaumburg letter to the editor: If your candidate did not win and you chose not to vote, just consider yourself one of the more useless citizens we are stuck with. If you voted and your candidate did not win — that’s democracy. Just try harder next time and don’t give up.

     
  • Profiling accusations should go both ways Nov 14, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Mount Prospect letter to the editor: Would the Soapbox team be as leery of Chicago police stopping a car full of suburban white teens driving daddy’s BMW on Chicago’s West Side to purchase heroin? That would be “profiling”! Should the Chicago officers be fearful of the Soapbox team accusing them of “profiling”? If it weren’t for their experience and “profiling,” the suburban officers may not have to inject Naloxone on the overdosing suburban drug addict who succeeded in purchasing that heroin!

     
  • Closing of nuclear plants a mistake Nov 14, 2014 5:01 AM
    Guest columnist Stanford Levin: Early closing of well-operating nuclear power plants, including some of those operated by Exelon in Illinois, is bad for the environment, will cost Illinois a number of high-paying jobs and substantial amounts of local tax revenue, and will in the end raise electricity prices for Illinois businesses and residents.
