Where once was pity


* Happy Birthday President Lincoln.

* On Lincoln's birthday, Rauner says icon should inspire change in Illinois:

“We all in Illinois face a daunting challenge to restore prosperity, and it’s an honor for me to serve you,” the new governor said to the crowd of veterans gathered at Lincoln’s tomb. “May we harness President Lincoln’s spirit as we face our many challenges together.”

* Lincoln loved taxing the rich:

As President, Lincoln created the first income tax. It was so progressive that most Americans paid nothing at all. Republicans today sometimes complain that half of Americans supposedly pay no income tax. That's exactly what Lincoln had in mind when he established a tax on those most able to pay.

* Should you join a union? The research says yes.

* 'My father is dead ... and I blame the VA'.

* Mr. Blue Sky is living here today.
