    So Colin Kaepernick is GK’s citizen of the year. That’s like naming Mrs. O’Leary’s cow citizen of the year – it makes sense only if you thought Chicago needed to be burned to the ground. But there’s another connection as well. Kaepernick’s knee caper, explained here by the currently unemployed quarterback, "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color…there are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder." is a protest against police brutality against black men....

    Workers using blowtorches to repair the roof of a landmark South Side church accidentally sparked the fire that destroyed the building, investigators announced Monday -- hours before Gov. Blagojevich pledged $1 million of state money to help restore the facility.

    OPINION -- With the June 25 announcement by conservative Republican Jack Ryan that he was dropping out of the U.S. Senate race for Illinois, the seat falls to Democrat candidate Barack Obama virtually by default. But who is Barack Obama? Is the charming, handsome, articulate 42-year-old state senator who dominated a field of six in the March 16 Democrat primary with 53 percent of the vote, the herald of a “new kind of politics” or merely a new voice calling for the same old, racist, urban welfare politics the Democrat Party has promoted for forty years?

    A recent news story about a mouse born to two “mommies” [1] suggested that the feminist fantasy of parthenogenesis, in which women would bear children without any “input” from men, might someday be realized. But New York Times columnist Bob Herbert [2] went the pc feminists at the ABC one better: On June 4, he suggested that Illinois politician Barack Obama was birthed by Obama’s father, without a female (what used to be called a “mother”) playing any role in the matter. O.K., Herbert didn’t actually say that, though he’s said things just as outrageous in the past. What he...
