    A Mount Prospect letter to the editor: Note to the McCaskey’s: The Chicago Bear fans have been abused and punished enough under your ownership. Please sell the Bears. Mr. Halas must be rolling over in his grave. My son is threatening to become a Packers fan. Oh, the horror of it.

    A Streamwood letter to the editor: As I listened to MSNBC today talking about the 39 million people who rely on food banks for their food, children who leave school on Friday afternoon and do not receive food until school on Monday, I teared up (even as I type this), thinking, how can we allow this to be?

  • The truth is obvious: Cutler cannot play Dec 20, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Niles letter to the editor: It has to be perplexing to all Bears fans that the one person who finally spoke out with utter verity about the continual woes of Jay Cutler gets thrown under the bus by Bears management. Were Aaron Kromer’s recent comments any different from what Mike Ditka or Buddy Ryan would say in public about an underachieving player? How sad that the Bears management is so clueless that a coach cannot say what everyone else knows: our quarterback stinks and is a major reason why the Bears stink.

  • Catholic Church isn’t the only religion out there Dec 20, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Bartlett letter to the editor: I’ve always been taught that true reporting of the news is done without any bias. You act as if the only important religion is Catholicism.

  • Find the spirit of Santa within ourselves Dec 19, 2014 4:14 PM
    A Buffalo Grove letter to the editor: Back in 1960, I cried when my third-grade teacher pulled six of us aside and told us there was no Santa Claus. It was a devastating heartbreak I can still picture today. Many children believe in you. Many grown-ups count on you to drive the economy at this time of the year.

  • The superrich are destroying opportunity Dec 19, 2014 4:14 PM
    An Arlington Heights letter to the editor: Wal-Mart employs about 1.5 million people in the U.S., and the average worker there makes about the same. Meanwhile, the Walton family is worth over $150 billion, more than the bottom 33 percent of Americans combined. The increasing cost of higher education limits opportunities to specialize, and it is delusional to think that everyone in this country is afforded an equal opportunity.

    A Wheeling letter to the editor: For years Christmas was celebrated as “the birth of Christ.” Today it has become very commercial and celebrated more with Santa, holiday songs, and lit-up houses, buildings and parks.
