Eric Zorn – If You are evolved, you gotta go along with him . . .or else.
Gosnell, 72, is charged with running what amounted to a squalid abattoir where he performed late-term abortions and severed the spines or otherwise killed outside the womb fetuses who showed signs of being able to survive.
He’s charged with first-degree murder in four such alleged incidents and with third-degree murder in the death of a patient who allegedly received a fatal overdose of anesthesia from Gosnell’s poorly trained staff.
I don’t mean to minimize the disturbing …

Obama is leashed by the notion that Wahhabist inspired, funded, evolved, aimed at cocked at the heart of civilized people is merely the rantings of loose-tooth rubes and racist plutocrats. Perhaps the Boston Globe investigative team will free our President of those hackles:
WASHINGTON — Russian authorities contacted the US government with concerns about Tamerlan Tsarnaev not once but “multiple’’ times, including an alert it sent after he was first investigated by FBI agents in Boston, raising new questions about whether the FBI should have paid more attention to …
I first met George Ryan, in 1975 when I was a baby teacher/coach at Bishop McNamara in Kankakee – a Chicago 18th Ward Democrat in Republican Land. In Fact Mimi Shapiro asked me to run for City Clerk as a Democrat – I figured what the hell -good way to learn the town. George’s brother Tom was the Mayor. The GOP slated Gene Glenzinski for City Clerk and the Dad of one my wrestlers and a better man never pulled on socks.
The Race was a blast and we had frequent …
Or per the Chicago Tribune “Illinois clergy endorse gay marriage bill”
Pat Hickey dissects
More than 250 faith leaders, many from Chicago, back measure that could face vote in January -Manya Brachear the Chicago Tribune’s Seeker
And you shall find that Manya Brachear numbers of support for Greg Harris’s Gay Marriage Bill are underwhelming.
Consider this, The Archdiocese of Chicago which represents and shepherd’s more than 2.3 million Catholics in Cook and Lake Counties numbers 3,325 clergy persons on its rolls alone:
Diocesan Priests (including active and retired): 791
Religious Priests: 710
Religious Brothers: 250
Women Religious: 1,781

The law professors, Craig Futterman of the University of Chicago and Locke Bowman of Northwestern, both have brought numerous misconduct cases against the Police Department during their careers. Futterman currently represents clients in a suit related to the department’s defunct Special Operations Section, and has said the code of silence judgment could aid his case.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel has taken two good steps to pull the string on the Gordian knot that is Chicago’s hairball – the Progressive University/Media/Lawsuit Lotto Machine. This Machine makes the one begun by …
Eric Zorn carries more water than Gunga Din – he carried buckets for Rahm’s Garbage Grid and has strenuously liquefied the parched tongues of Civil Union advocates, abortion on demanders and now for immediate Gay Marriage in Illinois. Today, close on the heels of Rahm Emanuel’s latest nod to his money base and the Progressive zeitgeist tagging Gay Marriage as Priority Three, EZ barrels the basic human right meme:
All Illinois can do now is hop on the train of history. The trend lines show it’s about to roll over the …
I reported on then Senator Barack Obama’s Hampton Univeristy speech of June 2007, when he had entered the race for President. Thus ‘quiet riot’.
The transcript of Senator Obama’s remarks were redacted, rather laundered, by the media at that time. I linked that in a March 2008 post yet again when Senator Obama lectured America on Race in his Teaching Moment that tossed United Church of Christ Black Liberation scholar/preacher Rev. Jeremiah Wright in the path of the bus that would soon bump over the man and his works.
Here is the speech …
The Southtown Star reports today that The Beverly Art Center(BAC) directors fired the manger who filled the seats of the theatre, added programs in two-dimensional and literary arts and managed to pay vendors and much of the original debt which caused its pioneering President to resign in anger, in order make this community center an arm of the Chicago Park District. This is really a sad and shabby tale of the south side.
The arts center has been a staple in the community for more than 40 years, the last 10 …
From Patrick T. Reardon in the Chicago Tribune
The story of Fort Dearborn is a creation narrative of our city. The real story isn’t about good guys and bad guys. It isn’t about a massacre.
It’s about three groups of people with three drastically different visions of the future. It’s about how each of those visions had validity. None of the three was, by nature, “righter” than the others.
The real story of Fort Dearborn is a collision of those visions.
This is important to Chicagoans today because we live in an increasingly multicultural, …
From the mind-numbing UIC Report Corruption in the Suburbs
The obvious and potentially most effective method for dealing with corrupt officeholders would be to elect new public officials dedicated to ethical behavior and governmental reform. Such candidates, if elected, can help change the culture of corruption in these suburbs. Voters should support candidates committed to fighting corruption.
Well, I’ll be dipped and rolled! Ain’t that a wonderment! Vote for new folks! Well, that must mean a whole new line of folks trotted out by old Thundering Dick, his own bad self!
