The latest news on the Jesse Jackson Jr. front is that the former Illinois Congressman's attorneys may attempt to bar federal prosecutors from having their own medical experts evaluate Jackson.
A hidden epidemic is poisoning America. The toxins are in the air we breathe and the water we drink, in the walls of our homes and the furniture within them. And there's a reason why you've never read about it in the newspaper or seen a report on the nightly news.
Chicago is well on its way to making history in the area of reducing homicides for the first time since the mid sixties. Let's continue to work together and help young people make positive choices in their life so they can live instead of being preoccupied with death.
Anything Goes is one of those shows that never takes itself too seriously. It isn't afraid to get a little bawdy and bend the rules -- but it always comes out one top, full of class, champagne bubbles and loads of style.
A group of students gathered in Dittmar Gallery on Thursday night for Take Back the Night, a yearly event in which survivors of physical or sexual assault speak out about their experiences.
How do we include more, and diverse voices? How do we ensure that we get it "right"? How do we ensure that our impact is what was intended? What do we need to do now, early in the process to be more inclusive?
William Staub saw a need and fulfilled it, just as I've seen what dogs need and how to fulfill them: Exercise, discipline, and then affection, in that order. As dog lovers, it is our responsibility to fulfill our dog's needs, no matter what the weather is like.
As discussions stall in Springfield, the interests of Illinoisans are left flapping in the wind, with entire communities completely and unacceptably exposed to the array of well known risks associated with the controversial oil and gas extraction technique.

Cubs owner Tom Ricketts has boldly proclaimed that the improvements will make champs out of the North Siders. Mr. Chairman, please consider the following upgrades that did not appear on your comprehensive plan.
What if you woke up one morning to learn that your community had become enlisted to advertise for Coca-Cola? You didn't have a choice. People in neighborhoods across your city were told the same thing. That's basically what happened in the city of Chicago.
Ed Burke is like Forest Gump in that he has been witness to, and part of shaping, many of the city's key events since the late '60s.
Can colleges and universities impact the cities and towns in which they are located in ways that reduce violence? Perhaps we should be held accountable for evaluating not only individual student learning outcomes or economic impact to our communities but whether and to what extent we contribute to a more humane world.
As the saying goes, the best predictor of future behavior is past behavior. Unfortunately, that saying does not bode well for the thousands of children who will be displaced when 54 schools shut down this year.
Chicago is home to five major professional sports teams and notoriously diehard fans, which is why it is one of the premier destinations to find top-notch sports bars.
Over a decade after 9/11, many of our communities have become more prepared to deal with the threat of a terrorist attack or crisis situation like the Boston Marathon bombing. Leaders in every community must ask themselves whether they are doing everything they can to be prepared.
The following is not a bucket list, a catalog of wild adventures I'm determined to have before I die. Rather, it's an attempt to focus on how much more I have to look forward to and to acknowledge that I still have plenty of time to check items off my list.
In mainstream media and culture, indeed, there's no such thing as "causes." The concept is just too complicated, unless "illegal immigration" is a cause, or "al Qaeda" is a cause. Or opaque garbage cans are a cause.
Brad's coming out became a lightning rod for discussion among his Christian, conservative and gay friends. Allen was unapologetic about his decision to remain a follower of Christ, seeking to be "the best gay Christian [he] could be." Many applauded him. Others argued that he'd been led astray.
