The Copps on South Park St. used to be Kohl's, which apparently went out of business. Kohl's had a union, this one doesn't. Otherwise they are about the same. The corporate parent company will likely close this store rather than make it more upscale. It serves a lower income neighborhood tha…

I don't mind the things he does, but he might find it to be more effective if he spaced it out a bit. He is interviewed frequently by the news media, and he likely is unaware that they have their own agendas - mainly to get sound bites and be in the spotlight themselves for getting him to sa…

The likelihood that the person in the lynching costume was a Bernie supporter is extremely low. This is what our forum of ideas has come to. As far as "right-wingers" are concerned, say anything and it's true. Spread any rumor and it automatically becomes scripture. This psychologi…

In today's sanitized world we have such things as enhanced interrogation and deployment of military advisers. No Child Left Behind transforms into Race to the Top. Triangulating stand for nothing "Democrats" are now "mainstream."

She should run, and would beat Walker, but it would put "Democrats" in a quandary. She would run by standing for something, and it would cause great discomfort among her fellow "Democrats," who have great difficulty standing for anything. Especially when they are "ru…
