Government should get out of wedding business

Do not name a library after the current occupant of the White House. The only reason he and his family would come back to Illinois is if they were paid. Also do not use the word "library" because the lights would be too dim to read.

The government needs to get out of the marrying business. People can go to a church, a lawyer or Elvis' Wedding Chapel.

A politician in Washington should say, "No more clicking cameras. I will do 10 funny faces and then the cameras go off."
