I travel the world and am a proud pedestrian. . . love walking. HP is the least friendly town whenRead Morei t comes to drivers treating pedestrians. If by chance you look at a driver who almost hits you as you try cross the street, they gladly show you the bird. Tonight as my wife, my son and I crossed the street (on a crosswalk) we were almost driven over by a woman who couldn't wait 10 seconds and let cross. A town of terrible, selfish drivers!

Entitlement has no boundaries for some in HP.

I respect that these high schoolers want to do something positive but removing the word from use is Read Moreextreme and impractical. The word itself isn't bad and removing it from our vocabulary doesn't fix people. There will always be bullies & people who lack compassion for others. Those are the people with the true mental defect, they can change themselves but don't or won't. If you have to call a person with a mental handicap a retard then there is something seriously wrong with you on the inside.

What does your babbling have to do with any of this?

Jeffrey L. Stern, it only gets worse... 5 of the eight people who voted "unanimously" inRead Moref avor of this plan, were actually there! Mundelein (R) Rep. Ed Sullivan was the ONLY person to stand up and speak out about this scandal. Speaker Michael Madigan thinks he can do whatever he wants... and he is right! Attorney General Lisa Madigan is his Daughter and she will not oppose good o'e Daddy!

Moe, You made me smile, Thank you!

Faith, thanks for the info, I'll spread the word.

Dan, your welcome! Glad I could help, now go push some poop through the pipe and make a differenceRead Morei n someone's life:)

Congratulations to the few Patch readers that remain for ignoring this douche bag and making himRead Moreeve n more inconsequential than he ever was. How much more pitiful can you become, Dan? You turn this poor woman's tragedy into just another cheap notch in your selfish little campaign. Cheap stereotypical "stats" ... cheap cliche nursery tales ... And other inventions of paranoia - all from the chief lamb himself who is too afraid to step into a great international city. All under this silly mask that you care about what happened to this woman. She's obviously of no concern to you and just a tool for your scummy little purpose. I look forward to the day when you acquire some self-awareness and shame. Until then, enjoy the positive impact you have on nobody out here.

Latest news, Rapist was tracked down, beaten to death with a Baseball Bat and dropped in theRead MoreChicago river... missing his assault weapon that used to be between his legs. I wish they would send it to Bringin' Down Briarwood!

21 year old woman was Raped near Wrigleyville, during the middle of the day in an Alley that had aRead Moref enced off construction area. The Rapist used a knife to force the woman into the fenced of area and the Robbed and Raped her. The sense of feeling "Safe" is eroding in the area as more women are Raped and Robberies become a daily event. The criminals from Detroit and NY are finding easy pret among the Liberal minded Chicago residents that would rather risk being Robbed and Raped... than Conceal Carry a firearm for protection. As one lady put it... I'll just move further North.

Here's the real crime. If 36 people were shot in 36 hours in the North Shore, politicians andRead Moregover nment officials would be falling all over themselves to find a solution to put into place. Not in Chicago, though...it means only controversial headlines and business as usual.
Dan Cox April 16, 2014 at 05:53 AM
Would somebody please ask Rep. Scott Drury why he feels that he should work to violate the SecondRead MoreAm endment Rights of every citizen in the State of Illinois. I would like to know why he and his Federal Prosecutors Office NEVER went after the real issue in the Chicago Murder Rate... Criminal Gangs! Why have our prosecutors failed to pursue any charges against these vicious gangs, why? It is so much easier to blame an object, a gun... it can not defend itself and tell the real story. The story that we already know... the gangs are running Chicago!

Steve S. People elect whomever has a (D) next to their name in Cook and Lake County Illinois. Rep.Read MoreS cott Drury may represent the wealthy in his district and may be supported by their fat contributions...but he is failing the people of Illinois. He voted against the Conceal Carry Law, even though both the federal courts and our own Illinois Supreme Court found Illinois to be guilty of violating our Second amendment Constitutional Rights. Now if Rep. Scott Drury had voted against Gay Marriage or a woman's right to choose... there would be hell to pay. But the arrogant North shore elitists are more than happy to keep a boy in office that does them proud and does not tax them equally as the rest of illinois citizens.
Moe @ the Buck April 09, 2014 at 01:22 PM
Hey Andrew, if your park ever opens, I'll take two tickets to your "Fantasy Land". If you Read Moreever decide to try to prevent our schools from gun violence, and come up with some realistic ideas, I would be happy to help.
James Jones April 09, 2014 at 01:50 PM
Andrew, your fantasy land is comparable to walking through the jungle with the thought that if youRead Morem ean them no harm you will be fine. GOOD LUCK WITH THAT!! Call a cop and see if you are still alive when they arrive 40 min. later
Dan Cox April 09, 2014 at 03:49 PM
Tennessee has just Passed Open Carry for everyone in the state... no license needed! Now if onlyRead MoreIll inois could be so good.
Dan Cox March 25, 2014 at 06:41 PM
Zoot, Great Post... would you please Post it in Libertyville? I have some anti-gun advocates thatRead Morene ed to see this. Thank You.
Jordan S. Zoot March 25, 2014 at 06:49 PM
Sure wil do.
Nancy J. Thorner March 17, 2014 at 09:16 AM
Great evaluation of Rep. Scott Drury! The good old boys must go. We have gotten nothing but anRead MoreIll inois that isn't working for either its citizens or for keeping businesses in this state. The situation is deplorable with Illinois's credit rating almost at junk bond status. We must clean house. Dr. Mark Neerhof will bring with him a desire to serve the people and to stand up to both Madigan and the Republican leadership who too often are weak and inapt at standing up and fighting for policies that will move IL forward.
Dan Cox March 17, 2014 at 11:49 PM
Nancy J. Thorner, Thank you! I am honored that you commented on my Post, I am a big fan of yourRead MoreBlog .
Marquez Grace March 17, 2014 at 09:50 PM
Dan - I couldn't believe my eyes when I read this on the patch: "Dan, RE/MAX Suburban hasRead Moreremo ved our sign. Please refrain from posting any more negative comments on our agents pages and remove our name from any of your posts. Thank you." It appears you have been spewing your pro gun hate speech on the pages of individual real estate agents because their office had a "no guns" sign? You sir are a lunatic.
Dan Cox March 17, 2014 at 11:46 PM
Marquez Grace, I Sir, got a Gun Free Zone sign removed from a business by asking them to respectRead Moreour Constitutional Rights! VICTORY! Oh, BTW...you can kiss my @ss!
Dan Cox April 12, 2014 at 10:03 AM
We the people have a Constitutional Right to Bear Arms. I oppose any infringement on ourRead MoreConstitutio nal Rights, against all enemies, foreign or domestic. If I were not a law abiding citizen, I would be over whelmed by a sense of Civil Disobedience and I would bash every window with a GFZ sign with a ball peen hammer!

@MINDY & @EMILY - please repost your comments / info. and cross posting to other areas of theRead Morepa tch. I don't know what happened to my original post? thank you so much

There were multiple sightings today and she is still wearing leash & collar. So many peopleRead Morewere out in the area trying to help but Lexi is scared and runs. Although she has run across busy streets, she is in the area of Deerfield - wilmot, we go trail, holly, strathmore and the Walgreen corp are areas sighted. Please call the family (numbers above) or deerfield police with sightings or if able to catch Lexi.
Dan Cox March 10, 2014 at 09:18 PM
forest barbieri, I enjoy my Constitutional Rights every single day. I do not get any Rights fromRead Morethe Supreme Court or any government bureaucrat. They can not give me, what has already been given to me by my Father, Grandfather and five generations more going back to the 1700's. That flag you see flying at the Post Office is there because of men and women who sacrificed everything, so we could stand in the light of Liberty and Freedom. I may be too enthusiastic for some folks, I do not care. I sleep well after I give hell to the tyrants and oppressors of H.P.
Marquez Grace March 16, 2014 at 07:46 PM
Dan the Plumber- Please cite once instance where an abused woman protected herself against anRead Moreabusiv e ex with a concealed handgun in a public store? Yes, never has happened in the history of the world so shut up now. Thanks. Love, the good people of HP

No Donna, Dan Cox does not have a constitutional right to post comments on the Patch.

Donna Smith, Okay, so I like to give Mayor Nancy Rotering and her merry band of misfits on the H.P. Read MoreCity Council some hell, every chance that I get. My Bad! You nailed M. Grace though, so I will stay out of the Tax Payers bracket as a return favor... but The AWB is game on! Bye.
