  • Answer to morgue mess? Don't die in Cook County Jan 30, 2012 6:08 AM

  • Beware the ides of January in primary season Jan 16, 2012 5:30 AM
    It isn't often that two members of the General Assembly can directly save individual taxpayers a few bucks so quickly or easily. Yet that is just what state Rep. Randy Ramey of Carol Stream and state Sen. Carole Pankau of Itasca have done.

  • Looking ahead to the second half of 2012 Jan 15, 2012 1:58 PM

  • Why look back? Here’s what’s coming Jan 1, 2012 8:11 PM
    The glut of retrospectives this time of year is unnecessary. With so many info-sources these days, it is impossible to avoid knowing what has happened. Recounting the past is like organizing your closet. Looking forward is more fun. From my top shelf, some 2012 month-by-month news notes:

  • Have a politically correct holiday season! Dec 26, 2011 6:00 AM

  • Epiphany about Blago: Read this to understand the man Dec 13, 2011 1:35 PM
    Everybody missed it at the time. Buried in all the festivities surrounding Rod Blagojevich's 14-year prison sentence, there was an epiphany. Not an Epiphany with a capital E, the kind that is celebrated at Christmas. A lowercase epiphany, something that defines the essence of something else. Once you know this one thing, you will understand Rod Blagojevich.

  • Chicago ties to newly released John Lennon FBI file Dec 5, 2011 3:45 AM

  • Horseplay history repeats itself in Penn State case Nov 20, 2011 6:34 PM
    It was just horseplay. That's how former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky explained the actions that led to allegations of child sexual abuse against him. If it's not true, it wouldn't be the first time an abuser used the "horseplay" defense to excuse criminal actions.

  • Before crying “freedom of speech” you should know what it means Oct 19, 2011 4:10 PM
    Perhaps more than any other part of the Constitution, the First Amendment right of “free speech” gets cited by Americans. And much of the time, it's cited wrongly.

  • If there's a War on Gangs, police and public are losing Oct 10, 2011 10:13 AM
    When a 5-year-old boy is shot in the head and killed, regardless of whether the gunfire was aimed at him, his father or the car they were in, the War on Gangs is being lost, columnist Chuck Goudie says.

  • Would ‘Hanoi Jane’ be an enemy combatant today? Oct 3, 2011 10:17 AM
    Jane Fonda was a traitor to America in 1972 and still is if you talk to many Vietnam War veterans. Judging by the airstrike against American terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki, Fonda should consider herself lucky to be alive today. “Hanoi Jane,” as she is still known in VFW halls and American Legion clubs across the country, was one squeeze of a trigger away from being an enemy combatant.

    If you believe in heaven, then Chuck Percy, the former Illinois senator who died over the weekend, finally can answer the questions he never could in life: who murdered his daughter, Valerie, and why? Percy died in Washington on Saturday, almost 45 years to the day after his daughter was brutally murdered in the family's Kenilworth home.
