Too hot Sunday reading

When it's too hot to go outside, read.

  • Journal Standard columnist, Harriett Gustason, finds a newspaper that really isn't a newspaper. It's a Republican campaign advertisement masquerading as a newspaper. Oh my gosh! To what lows will they stoop! Well, the interesting thing is, it's from 1860 in Freeport, Illinois. (Politics, the same then and now.)
  • You know you're in Illinois when politics trumps culture and scholarship. But, let's hope rumors of a rift between the Executive Director of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum and Library and the head of the foundation is no more than just rumors. See Sneed's Friday column. Via Dr. Goldblatt

Wow, "eloquently and intellectually", thank you for your kind words. Did you check out my firefly story?

Yes, I did. I never miss anything you write.

OK, break it up you two.

What I want to know is, why are you reading the Freeport, IL paper? I lived there in exile for a number of years. Nothing ever happens there but I still read the obits in the FJS.

Oops..that last post was me.

Hehe, I guess I did sound sort of sappy.

As for the Freeport paper, I went looking for someone not trying to make a buck off of history.

And Dave..,

Who did you go looking for in the obits?
