"People often say with pride, ‘I’m not interested in politics.’ They might as well say, ‘I’m not interested in my standard of living, my health, my job, my rights, my freedoms, my future, or any future.’"

We can only imagine what a heartbreaking and exhausting week it’s been for you and your city. But do know your newsroom colleagues here in Chicago and across the country stand in awe of your tenacious coverage. You make us all proud to be journalists.

We can’t buy you lost sleep, so at least let us pick up lunch.

A letter, accompanying several boxes of pizza, sent by staffers at the CHICAGO TRIBUNE to their friends at the Boston Globe.

As the folks at the Globe said, classy to the core.

That’s John Howard, Australia’s Prime Minister at the time of the Port Arthur Massacre in 1996. After the massacre, he prompted the passing of gun control laws throughout Australia. Gun buy-back programs resulted in the destruction of 600,000 guns, private sales were prohibited, guns were required to be individually registered to their owners and assault weapons were banned or heavily restricted. The result? Gun homicides reduced 59%, gun suicides dropped 65% and there have been no mass shootings since (4 or more deaths at one time).

Senators Graham and McCain, if Dzhohkar Tsarnaev is tried as an enemy combatant, we would not be exercising American values. There is a reason due process exists for citizens. True justice requires due process. Try Dzhohkar in American court and find him guilty. If we don’t give him due process, our American values are meaningless. It would mean that the American government could withhold from American citizens rights that are guaranteed to them by the Constitution.
His actions are still egregiously heinous and macabre, but he deserves to be tried in American court where justice can properly be served.

A line from The Hangover comes to mind here: You[Fox News] are literally too stupid to insult.

Wait, wut?! I don’t have a Constitutional right to have sex? I’m moving to Canada!

And speaking of that, here’s an outrageous fact that many of you may or may not know: male products such as medicine for erectile dysfunction and male enhancement are 100% covered by most insurance companies, yet birth control/contraception/abortions are not covered by most insurances. So, basically, a man can get a woman pregnant after using Viagra (covered by his insurance), but the woman he impregnates can’t get the morning-after pill or an abortion because it’s not covered by her insurance.

Something’s wrong with that picture!

Correct me if I’m wrong on my comments. Please.

"SENATORS say they fear the N.R.A. and the gun lobby. But I think that fear must be nothing compared to the fear the first graders in Sandy Hook Elementary School felt as their lives ended in a hail of bullets. The fear that those children who survived the massacre must feel every time they remember their teachers stacking them into closets and bathrooms, whispering that they loved them, so that love would be the last thing the students heard if the gunman found them. On Wednesday, a minority of senators gave into fear and blocked common-sense legislation that would have made it harder for criminals and people with dangerous mental illnesses to get hold of deadly firearms — a bill that could prevent future tragedies like those in Newtown, Conn., Aurora, Colo., Blacksburg, Va., and too many communities to count."
