Cops were called to a bar in the 2600 block of North Clark around 8 p.m. on February 4 after an employee reported seeing a customer holding a handgun on his lap. Officers approached 36-year-old David Rhodus as he sat on a bar stool and allegedly found a 9-millimeter pistol loaded with 21 live rounds protruding from his right pants leg. Police said Rhodus claimed to have a Firearms Owner Identification Card [FOID] but did not have a concealed carry license.

Rhodus, of the 2800 …

“When it came to the issue of, quote, ‘chain migration,’ I said to the president, do you realize how painful that term is to so many people?” Durbin said. “African-Americans believe they migrated to America in chains and when you talk about chain migration, it hurts them personally.”

Durbin’s claim was of course ludicrous on its face: “Chain migration” is a metaphor, conjuring an image of each member of a family as a link in a chain, and has nothing to do with slavery. (Something he apparently knew back in 2010, when Durbin …

From the Bloomington Pantagraph
Managers of Grossinger Motors Arena are asking the city for an infusion of cash to keep the city-owned facility’s books in the black.

VenuWorks is requesting a cash transfer of $375,000 to help cover the operating deficit at the downtown venue, formerly known as U.S. Cellular Coliseum. Officials cite a lag in sponsorships, a lack of bookings and home hockey games and bad publicity over the previous management’s embezzlement allegations as some of the reasons for the arena’s lackluster financial performance.

From the Washington Post
Broadcaster and model Leeann Tweeden said Thursday that Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) “forcibly kissed” her and groped her during a USO tour in 2006, saying that “there’s nothing funny about sexual assault.”

“You knew exactly what you were doing,” Tweeden wrote in a blog post for Los Angeles radio station KABC, for whom she works as a morning news anchor. “You forcibly kissed me without my consent, grabbed my breasts while I was sleeping and had someone take a photo of you doing it, knowing I would see it later, and be ashamed.”
