Where’s Illinois? I greatly enjoyed the forum from Oct. 4 but found it amazing that neither side mentioned Illinois. As I write, the Democrats are working on a plan to, through redistricting, eliminate six, seven or perhaps even eight Republican-held districts. For the record, both Ohio and Illinois are wrong.

The secret sauce The oil industry is being asked for full disclosure of the chemicals to be used when companies apply for drilling permits, which include “fracking.” However, representatives are requesting that “proprietary ingredients” be exempted from this request in order for the individual company to maintain its competitive edge when using new procedures.

No Bob love? Pt. 1 To call this article Guided By Vices and not include any of Robert Pollard’s 2011 releases (four, so far) is a disgrace. Sounds like you have more of an issue with being trendy than being an actual critic. Go hide under a rock and stop reviewing music. Andrew Garvic [RE: […]
