    A South Barrington letter to the editor: Recent letters from Joan Brody (Oct. 4) and Jim Peterson (Oct. 12) praise Tammy Duckworth “ ... for her work to cut waste and fraud in government ...” and “ ... reduce waste in military spending” among other things. but they both neglect to mention Ms. Duckworth’s time as an assistant secretary in the Veterans Affairs for more than two years (2009-2011). The scheduling fiasco where the VA failed to give veterans timely physicals and treatment was occurring. And, the VA was covering up the scheme. Apparently, that sorry episode escaped her.

  • Ebola allowed to spiral out of control Oct 24, 2014 12:01 AM
    Ebola allowed to spiral out of control What is wrong with the CDC and the people that run this country? Due to their inability to stand up and control things immediately and take Ebola seriously it is now in the U.S. and spreading. How could the CDC allow a restricted person with an elevated temperature get on an airplane and expose others? Why are they taking an Ebola-stricken patient from one hospital to another when they have no real clue how two nurses were infected by it? Bring the specialists and the equipment to the patient. Why are they taking more risks by bringing the patient across the U.S? And, most importantly why are they leaving our borders open to countries that are epidemic with it? Checking temperatures and thinking this is any kind of preventive measure is absolutely ridiculous. What ever happened to quarantines? Where are the travel restrictions? The stupidity of how this has been handled so far is dumbfounding and scary. And, while they figure out what they are going to do Ebola will spread in the U.S. They are worried about frightening the American public. Too late. Everywhere you go people are talking about this. Why hasn’t our president addressed this to the public in some manner, any manner? By the way, they are saying that economists in the U.S. are worried a travel ban will cause problems to the economy of these countries. If we wind up with a problem here, I can guarantee other countries will ban us from entering their countries. If they had put travel restrictions and quarantines in the first place we wouldn’t have this disease here. Blaming a hospital in Texas is not the answer. Blame those who should have known better up front. And, to make this any kind of a political issue is outlandish. Cheryl Bast South Elgin
