Re: “Alec Klein, Northwestern professor accused of sexual misconduct, resigns

The beast eats it's young. The innocence project is a scientific study on retrospective un-justice and a multi-million dollar extortion racket. Karma direct hit.

Re: “‘This is a march of civil disobedience’ [PHOTOS]

Wait, which is the civil disobedience, the murder, murder, murder going on in all the non-racist neighborhoods (please!) or the marching in the streets about it? What a precarious syntagm you all construct when you swap out the minority culprit paradigm for white racism. Not a single white shooter/killer in 2017 but still the scapegoat for ALL the slaughter. What's next, Russian involvement? When you look in the mirror and see Conan O'Brian, look down at your own hand for reference. Snap out of it, we were never there.

Re: “Caught between black and blue

The fact that you waited till the second paragraph to blame Trump shows a professional level of restraint. That bastard always makes me order that third Tito's on the rocks that gives me my hangovers. Sally forth Evan.

Re: “Lake Shore Drive marchers: Here's the real lowdown on the city's budget

Here is an interesting question, have TIF funds ever been spent on "in lew of" fees?

Re: “Lake Shore Drive marchers: Here's the real lowdown on the city's budget

TIF's seem to be your never ending source of lament, but lament isn't a function of journalism or a tool of investigation. There are over 160 TIF's in Chicago, pick one you think might be managed poorly and follow the money. I'm guessing a staff of eager beavers could uncover massive fraud, waste and nepotism. Your knowledge of the system should make this an easy avenue to prosecute and put some teeth where they need to be......or, you can just pine away about it for another ten years. Totally up to you. Others have won Putlitzer's for similar work, you could be next, you're not getting any younger.

Re: “We need a citywide hearing for the Lincoln Yards project

I point out at the beginning of the week that in the past, Mayors have stolen tainted land from their rightful owners and built housing on it for huge profit, and that now history is repeating itself, and I get a thumbs down on this article a few days later about exposing the current toxic dump getting a crackdown, and some thumbs it down. Who are you creeps? What can you possibly gain by pissing in your own lobby?

Re: “Does the Second Amendment apply to black people?

"the soft bigotry of low expectations" Do you mind if I borrow that phrase EVERY DAY CARRY?
