Re: “Sticks and stones will break your bones, and so will 16-inch softball

I like the symmetry of the photo of the hand holding the softball and the hand holding the ostrich egg on the front page.

Re: “Free Gin and Tonic Finder

Oh so it doesn't find you free gin and tonics, it just finds you gin and tonics for free.

Re: “Kanye's Beautiful Dark Twisted Rape Fantasy

I think most of Julian Assange's defenders believe that the whole rape thing was a set-up orchestrated by the CIA. Considering that he has severely pissed off the US government and that one of the women has former connections to the CIA, it seems extremely plausible. So, most are not defending the alleged crime, but saying that it never took place at all.

Re: “The Silver Lining Party

I think the view shown in this article is a bit gloomier than the reality. The Democrats and Republicans have spent many decades making the political system nearly inaccessible to any outside candidates. That's the true bipartisanship.

The Green Party has shown that even with these extreme odds against ballot access, and the bias of many voters against anything new, that it is possible to start breaking through and getting healthy vote totals in many races.

Jeremy's loss was a bit of a disappointment just by the fact that it was an incredible campaign and he by all rights deserved to win. He's a great contributor to the community, had all the major endorsements, and the most dynamic and energized Green Party campaign ever put together in Illinois. He gained 15 percent on his opponent from his last race as well. 35% for a Green is completely unprecedented within Chicago.

The people who worked on these campaigns are still here, and the Democrats and Republicans have only gotten worse. The results might seem a little worse than the last major election, but on the ground the Greens have more volunteer support than ever. It's a slow process building a movement and there's always more reason to get Greens elected.

Re: “Alvarez v. Medill

It certainly seems like the state's attorney's office is trying to cover its rear for a case that was screwed up some 30 years ago. The evidence is clear that this man is innocent, and it is a heinous crime to keep him in jail. It's a brutal betrayal of justice when the guilty man has gone free and someone innocent has been wrongly imprisoned.

What happened to the burden of proof laying with the prosecution?

Re: “Political Party Rap

Heh, I just noticed the Nintendo controller on the bomb. It's great to see how involved these guys are in the community.

Re: “Service Cuts

The health department looks like it has an absurdly small amount of people. I hope they aren't responsible for a huge amount of work, but I assume that they are.
