    A Long Lake letter to the editor: Thanks for your stories about "drones" which are really called unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV).

     
  • Only 1 true patriot can save America Jan 13, 2015 1:01 AM
    A West Dundee letter to the editor: A U.S. Army couple had long ago planned their wedding on the 16th hole of a Hawaiian golf course. But they had to cancel their wedding at the last minute because Obama decided that it was more important that he play golf on that same course at that same time. And, of course, we all know that nothing interferes with Obama’s golf game. What kind of a human being is this arrogant self seeking America hating narcissist?

     
  • Imposing religious beliefs on others Jan 13, 2015 1:01 AM
    A Pingree Grove letter to the editor: LeAnne Seavers’ Jan. 4 letter regarding gay couples respecting the religious beliefs of others misses a significant point. America’s religious freedom is predicated upon the notion that we cannot be deterred from holding our beliefs. At the same time, we are not allowed impose our beliefs on others.

     
  • Obama’s slap at France Jan 13, 2015 1:01 AM
    Columnist Richard Cohen: In Paris on Sunday, the United States really led from behind — so far behind that President Obama and other important U.S. officials stayed stateside as 40 other world leaders joined about 1.5 million Frenchmen in a stirring riposte to terrorism and anti-Semitism.

     
  • This year, explore a plant-based diet Jan 12, 2015 1:48 PM
    An Arlington Heights letter to the editor: It’s time for New Year’s resolutions, particularly those about our health. Although gun violence remains the leading cause of death among young people, our most dangerous weapon is still our fork. Forty-five times as many die of chronic diseases linked to a diet containing animal products, sugar and salt.

     
  • Fear of terrorism no excuse for torture Jan 12, 2015 1:48 PM
    An Arlington Heights letter to the editor: Sen. John McCain, who knows a thing or two about torture, spoke eloquently about the report, saying, “Most of all, I know the use of torture compromises that which most distinguishes us from our enemies. Our belief that all people, even captured enemies, possess basic human rights which are protected by international conventions, (which) the United States not only joined but for the most part, authored.” What our country needs now is the courage to live up to our ideals.

     
  • It makes sense to televise Esports Jan 12, 2015 1:45 PM

  • Can’t make it on minimum wage? Jan 12, 2015 1:46 PM
    A Wood Dale letter to the editor: This is in response to Lou Pardini’s letter regarding executive pay increases versus the minimum wage increase. It is really quite simple. Each corporation pays its executives based on what feels it can afford.

     
  • The solution is simple: Obey the law Jan 12, 2015 5:22 PM
    A Lake Zurich letter to the editor: If President Obama, Eric Holder, Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson could get this message across, then maybe people would not have to stick up for criminals with no respect for the law instead of blaming the people who enforce them.

     
  • Carpentersville fire academy worth time Jan 11, 2015 12:01 AM
    A Carpntersville letter to the editor: This fall, my husband and I participated in the first Carpentersville Citizens Fire Academy. We were amazed at the level of education and activities we were able to do with the help of teams from the three Carpentersville fire houses.

     
  • Heard of separation of church, state? Jan 11, 2015 12:01 AM
    An Elgin letter to the editor: Thanks for the article on Elgin’s Nightmare fest, it was very informative. As stated in the article, the $34,000 lost by the city is a good investment in getting people drawn to downtown Elgin. The one, very troubling statement in the article was by Councilman Toby Shaw: “I’m not opposed to it from a financial perspective, but I’m not found of the themes and what it stands for, from a religious background.”

     
  • Jolie misses the point in ‘Unbroken’ Jan 11, 2015 12:01 AM
    A Wheaton letter to the ediot: Don’t waste your time or money on the movie “Unbroken.” Read the book instead. Ms. Jolie needs to keep her day job as actress and stay out of deciding what to put from a hero’s life onto a screen. Jolie fails to capture the real story — a war hero who had every apparent right for vengeance, literally “comes to Jesus” and returns to forgive.

This bittersweet story of love and addiction is the latest in our ongoing series: Heroin in the Suburbs: Though Their Eyes, writes DuPage/Fox Valley News Director Jim Davis.

     
  • The politics of homicide Jan 11, 2015 1:01 AM
    Columnist Michael Gerson: Those who believe they hold an eternal truth about the nature and destiny of the universe cannot find a cartoon or novel to be genuinely threatening. The Parthenon or the Great Pyramid is not destroyed by some graffiti scrawled on its base. Equanimity is one manifestation of mature faith.

     
  • Makes no sense to stop deportations Jan 11, 2015 1:01 AM
    A Round Lake Beach letter to the editor: Am I to understand that the president, whom I voted for twice, is going to stop deporting illegal aliens? Isn’t that illegal?

     
  • More focus needed on Avon assessor Jan 11, 2015 1:01 AM

    A Mount Prospect letter to the editor: As I continue to watch the price of gasoline drop, I can’t help but reflect on a speech given on national television on April 18, 1977. President Jimmy Carter cautioned that the oil and natural gas we relied on for 75 percent of our energy was running out.
