    Winds of war stir again

    Many pro-life Republican politicians are beating the drums for war with Iran. Oil prices are down, Halliburton had to lay off 5,000 employees. They need to replenish the pockets of war contractors and big oil, who are their campaign donors.

    Most litigious is dubious distinction

    I am writing in response to your recent story that showed that Madison County is amoung the most litigious counties in Illinois (“New report singles out most litigious Illinois counties”) and the fact that the county “handles up to half of all asbestos related cases filed in...
