Tonight, tonight, tonight
We'll preview the special Springfield City Council Meeting tonight where Aldermen will discuss releasing a recording from an executive session from back in May where they discussed the particulars of the file shredding fiasco. We'll get your take on if the City Council should release that recording or if they should button it up until the investigation is complete. We'll also go over some of the things set to be discussed at the Council Committee of the Whole.
A right delayed is a right denied
|Mary Shepard's battered face is the face of Illinois being a gun-free zone|
How can we not discuss the implications of the federal judge down in East St. Louis dismissing plaintiffs who demand the right to carry weapons now, as opposed to waiting for the state to get their act together on a concealed carry permit. The argument from Mary Shepard and others is that the deadline has come and gone and Illinoisans still don't have the right to carry firearms outside the house. The plaintiffs are taking their appeal back to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. We'll get your take on if the statement "a right delayed is a right denied" is legitimate or if it's only right to let the state drag their feet.
News on the March covers stories that may get overlooked. We'll keep updated on the latest concerning Pfc. Bradley Manning and the verdict to be handed down today, libertarian activist Adam Kokesh being held, an update on how many times drones have been used in the US, the possibility of Obama Care propaganda discriminating against age, Fast Food Forward redux, the strange story of unchanged US debt and more.
