Jenny Lokshin’s recent letter promoted Planned Parenthood as providing quality health care and useful services. I encourage Lokshin to do more research on Planned Parenthood. Their primary business is abortion, not women’s health care. Lokshin stated correctly that U.S. abortions are declini…
You’ve heard the adage, “If you’re innocent, stop acting guilty.” I just learned about “adverse inference” on the news.
While the fringe element needs no reminder of the Second Amendment’s closing phrase that has become their singular obsession, isolated and enshrined, they may be admonished of the opening lines: “A well-regulated militia .”
I’m coming to the University of Illinois Homecoming football game this Saturday.

Seventeen former Watergate special prosecutors have weighed in: The House can and should investigate President Donald Trump for high crimes and misdemeanors.
On Oct. 10, I did my weekly grocery shopping at Salt and Light in Urbana. When I arrived home, I checked my receipt and found that two items on sale had been overcharged. I called the phone number on the receipt, and the woman who took my call was very apologetic. She directed me to take the…

I just read an article that scares me to death. The illustrious Illinois governor wants to get his hands on $14 billion from Illinois police and fire pensions from outside Cook County. And don’t you so-called righteous liberals think he won’t find a way to do it.
As the Trump administration dramatically cuts the number of refugees allowed to enter this country by almost 50 percent, men, women and children worldwide are grieving.

During the infamous “telephone call,” President Donald Trump asked the Ukraine president to “look into horrible” things done by Joe Biden and apparently dangled military aid as a carrot to do so. If that wasn’t bad enough, Trump also brought up “CrowdStrike.”

In a world full of strife, selfishness and sadness, it’s a welcome relief to read a story that not only makes you smile but you know puts a smile on many other faces as well. Such a story was “Student team works to design new walking device with real life impact for woman, maybe others” on S…
Who else was completely unsurprised that the first guest invited on “Penny For Your Thoughts” to discuss the brewing impeachment effort against Donald Trump was Robert Steigmann?
