There are people who possess firearms who are no threat to anyone except that they are untrained �D like the man who was attempting to clear his new firearm and instead put a bullet through his hand; through one daughter, killing her; and into a second daughter, wounding her.

Or people are careless. They leave loaded firearms on the kitchen table or the nightstand or in an unlocked drawer with children around. Too often, such carelessness has led to tragedy. There are reasons that some folks should be denied the right to keep and bear arms.

That brings us to the Second Amendment. The last part of its single sentence is often quoted: ��... the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.�� The first part of that single sentence reads, ��A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state ...��

When that amendment was conceived and written,cheap retro jordans, we didn��t have what we have had for a long time: a standing Army and Army Reserves, Navy and Navy Reserves, Marines and Marine Reserves, and Air Force and Air Force Reserves. In addition, every state has its own National Guard, and every locality has its own police force and sheriff��s department. The need for a ��well-regulated militia�� has disappeared.

When we try to enact reasonable legislation to keep firearms from those who shouldn��t have them or those who are not trained and the Second Amendment is brought into the argument, then let us bring the whole of the amendment to the table.

      [edit] Mellody cheap retro

      Mellody Hobson on Lucas Museum on site of McCormick Place East Mellody Hobson talks about the possibility of building her husband George Lucas' art museum on the site of the McCormick Place East building. April 15, 2015. (John Byrne Chicago Tribune) Mellody Hobson talks about the possibility of building her husband George Lucas' art museum on the site of the McCormick Place East building. April 15, 2015. (John Byrne Chicago Tribune) See more videos Those who know Hobson say her recent comments demonstrated the passion and directness that allowed her to climb from a young girl sweeping hallways of rental units owned by her single mother to an Ivy League graduate negotiating billion-dollar investments in her hometown. To family, peers and high-profile public figures — Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg, DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg and former presidential candidate Bill Bradley to name a few — Hobson is celebrated as an extraordinary woman trying to help the city she loves. "She has this amazing combination of incredible intellect, emotional authenticity and as big a heart as anybody I know," said Katzenberg, who noted that Hobson's role as chairwoman of the film company's board provided filmmakers with much-needed encouragement as they made "Home," a rare animated film featuring an African-American protagonist. "She's a role model." The youngest of six children, Hobson grew up accompanying her mother, Dorothy, as she fixed apartment buildings to be sold as condominiums. Beginning as early as 4 a.m., she and her mother visited properties to turn on the heat, paint hallways and do other janitorial work. The pair also visited with banks and lawyers as Dorothy tried to acquire new properties, said Pat Hamel, Hobson's oldest sister. At times, money was tight, because the single mother had to provide for six children without a father in the picture. The family was evicted several times when the mother couldn't make rent as properties she intended to convert to condos were denied loans from banks because of racial segregation. Still, Dorothy insisted that her family live in apartments on Chicago's North and South sides, where she believed her children would be exposed to the best schools and opportunities.

Chicago financial executive Mellody Hobson is smart and civic-minded, but I don't buy her argument that Friends of the Parks has "hijacked" the Lucas museum debate and that the city's "young and black and brown children" will be the losers if Lucas takes the museum elsewhere. Hobson and her husband,... (Blair Kamin) Hobson attended Ogden Elementary School and then St. Ignatius College Prep, where she immediately excelled. "She was just smart, she caught on very fast," Hamel said. "She always wanted to know more,cheap jordans, learn more and she was interested in almost anything." That sharpness and enthusiasm caught the attention of John Rogers, founder and CEO of Ariel Investments, who also recruited minority students to his alma mater, Princeton University. Hobson attended every recruiting event he sponsored, including a dinner in which he introduced the young girl to then-Sen. Bill Bradley. "You could just see how special she was back then, so much energy, so much presence," Rogers said. After graduating from Princeton, Hobson returned to Chicago to work for Ariel, quickly making a name for herself as one of the few African-American women in the money management and investment business. With a tireless work ethic — Hobson starts many days before 4 a.m. — Hobson was able to hold her own with the financial leaders of the nation's most well-known investment firms, Rogers said. In recent weeks, she was the lead negotiator in the acquisition of DreamWorks Animation by Comcast, Rogers said.

According to Hobson, the drawn-out... (Dahleen Glanton) She kept in touch with Bradley,cheap retro jordans, for whom she campaigned in 2000, and was an early supporter of Barack Obama. Election records show that she has made $214,000 in campaign contributions to various, mostly Democratic, candidates since 1994,, including $35,100 to Rahm Emanuel. Hobson also became philanthropically engaged early on. She is a board member of The Chicago Public Education Fund, the George Lucas Education Foundation and chairwoman of After School Matters, a nonprofit that provides Chicago teens with out-of-school programs. In her work with the latter, she insists on as much time with the young participants as possible,cheap real jordans, where she relates to the teens by sharing stories from her own childhood in Chicago,cheap retro jordans, said Mary Ellen Caron, CEO of the nonprofit. "She's aware of the barriers that teens face and she will bring that up," Caron said. "She just lets them know that she knows life isn't always that easy and it's as sincere as I've ever heard." See the evolving?plans and renderings for the now-defunct Lucas Museum of Narrative Art that was to be built near Chicago's lakefront. Already a millionaire and well-connected power player through her own work, Hobson met Lucas at a business conference and the couple dated for nearly five years before publicly discussing their relationship in an interview with Oprah Winfrey. The couple wed at Lucas' Skywalker Ranch near San Francisco. Bradley walked Hobson down the aisle. Friends and family agree that Lucas has been a calming and balancing presence in Hobson's life. But they also insist she would have pushed for bringing the museum to Chicago even if it wasn't her husband's art collection to be featured. "Mellody is the kind of person that, when you meet her, you instantly understand your life will now be better with her in it," Facebook's Sandberg said. "She's an amazing businesswoman, a caring philanthropist and a true friend." Tribune reporter Bill Ruthhart contributed. vortiz@tribpub Twitter @vikkiortiz

        • Blackhawks cheap real jordans goalie Sc< li> < ul> Democrats hold supermajorities in the House and Senate and have been able to stymie Rauner’s economic agenda, which calls for changes in laws that would weaken traditional Democratic allies in organized labor and among workers’ compensation attorneys. The Democrats' refusal to move on those issues led to a lengthy budget stalemate, which culminated in a temporary spending plan that expires Jan. 1.

          State filings show the governor and wife Diana Rauner donated an additional $9 million Thursday to the campaign fund of House Republican leader Jim Durkin of Western Springs. Durkin almost immediately transferred $5 million to the House Republican Organization, the campaign arm of the House GOP, and $3 million to the Illinois Republican Party.

          The latest influx comes after Rauner’s campaign fund about a week earlier sent $3 million to Durkin, to be funneled to individual Republican House campaigns.

          Durkin’s campaign fund also benefited from a $3 million donation Friday from billionaire hedge-fund founder Ken Griffin, a Rauner ally.

          All told, Rauner, his family and his campaign fund have doled out $45.8 million in political contributions this year. Of the $29 million the Illinois Republican Party has raised this year, nearly $21 million has come from Rauner and $4 million this month through Durkin’s campaign fund.

          (Rick Pearson)
          It's the latest spate of spending for Rauner, who became wealthy as an equity investor. In his 2014 win over then-Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn, Rauner spent more than $65 million, including $27.6 million in personal funds.

          With Madigan now Rauner's target, Durkin’s campaign fund has collected nearly $18 million this year, $12 million from Rauner and $5 million from Griffin, the founder and CEO of Citadel.

          Griffin on Friday also wrote an additional $2 million check to Republican Comptroller Leslie Geissler Munger, who is seeking election to the office against Democratic Chicago City Clerk Susana Mendoza.

          Like the battle for legislative seats, the statewide contest between Munger and Mendoza for the comptroller’s office is similarly viewed as a proxy war for Rauner and Madigan. Munger was appointed to serve as comptroller by Rauner following the death of Judy Baar Topinka.

          (Kim Geiger)
          Munger has raised $8.6 million for the special election, mainly from five sources: $5 million from Griffin; $2 million from conservative GOP donor Richard Uihlein; $1 million from Rauner’s campaign; $260,000 from a loan from Munger’s husband, John; and $120,,500 from the state Republican Party.

          All other sources to her campaign added up to $267,cheap jordans,997, records showed.

          Mendoza, a former state lawmaker, has raised just more than $2 million for her campaign. The state Democratic Party, which Madigan chairs,cheap jordans for sale, provided $150,000; a number of labor unions have contributed as well.

          All told, Griffin has made more than $11.1 million in donations this year — $5 million apiece to Durkin and Munger,cheap jordan shoes, and $1 million to the Liberty Principles political action committee that is allied with Rauner in several GOP legislative campaigns.

            Police say Booker stole several televisions, laptops and a set of golf clubs from three River Forest homes between June 14 and 16.

            "There was a total of three burglaries where he entered the premises and two attempts [to enter homes] in that string of burglaries,cheap jordan shoes," said River Forest Police Chief Gregory Weiss. "A majority of it happened over a two-night span."

            According to Weiss, one incident was reported to have occurred in the 1300 block of Ashland Avenue, while the remainder of the incidents occurred in the 500 and 600 blocks of Keystone Avenue.

            Following the incidents, a ping from one of the stolen laptops led River Forest police to the west side of Chicago, where they further investigated the crimes.

            "The ping from the laptop led us to an area," Weiss said. "In that area,retro new jordans, the officers started talking to people and they noticed a car that had been stopped previously in River Forest. They made that connection."

            Weiss said officers discovered several of the stolen items had been sold to a local pawn shop.

            On June 16, the River Forest detective unit created a law enforcement bulletin listing Booker as a suspect, police said. Within hours, Booker was stopped and arrested in River Forest.

            Nearly all of the stolen items have been recovered,cheap jordans online, police said.

            "We had two owners come over and pick up their property," Weiss said. "One owner bought the officers pizza because he was happy to have his golf clubs back. I was even impressed by how quickly they were able to solve this."

            Booker is expected to appear in bond court on June 19, according to Cook County State's Attorney's Office spokesman Steve Campbell.

(Abel Uribe Chicago Tribune)
              At Nicky's Hot Dogs, no relation, at the corner of Archer and Austin avenues, co-owner Angelo Lilas makes what's widely considered a consistently exemplary historic version of the burger. "A Big Baby is a double cheeseburger on a sesame seed bun with ketchup, mustard, pickle, grilled onions and a slice of cheese," said Lilas with conviction, "That's it."

              Some innovators add lettuce and tomato, defiling the canon.

              Lilas owns the small 1960s-vintage storefront with his father, Jim, who also happened to be on vacation in Greece, their home country as well.

              The younger Lilas revealed secret ingredients,cheap jordans for sale, and even home cooking tips,cheap jordans, but added a caveat.

              "We use Vienna beef patties," he said, "We have for 30-plus years."

              How could fans make a Big Baby at home, if they had to?

              "First, I'd grill the onions," said Lilas, "Get those onions nice and going, because they're going to take a little bit, especially if you're pan-frying. Throw a little bit of oil, maybe a tad bit of garlic oil. Once those are done, maybe add a little bit of salt or garlic salt."

              "But the thing is no matter how much you cook it at home, it won't taste like this," he warned. "I've taken these (ingredients) home. It looks like it but doesn't taste like it."

              For Big Baby context and history, you have to talk to Peter Engler, a former University of Chicago genetic research scientist perhaps best known for his television appearance with Anthony Bourdain as the expert on the mother-in-law sandwich, another South Side specialty. Engler, a longtime South Sider, has studied the Big Baby for nearly 15 years ― and has lost count of the number he's eaten.

              He's spoken with half a dozen people who claimed to have invented it. "The Big Baby is a burger style that arose in Chicago around Midway Airport sometime in the 1960s," said Engler. "A lot of places around the Southwest Side continue to serve it with varying similarities to the original model."

              "It's two griddled burger patties," he said. "Very often, a sixth of a pound each, very common, commercial, small, usually frozen patties, griddled on a flat top. It comes on a toasted sesame seed bun. Almost every place will lightly toast the bun on the griddle as the burger is cooking. When the burger is almost finished cooking, the bottom of the bun will be taken off and dressed with ketchup, mustard and, usually, two or three pickle coins. Then the two burgers will be taken off with a piece of American cheese sandwiched between, and then that burger-cheese-sandwich will be placed on the bottom bun. Then everything is topped with a tong-full of sauteed onions, pretty greasy, not browned but colored,cheap air jordans, and then the top of the bun goes on. The order of the assembly at the authentic places is really invariant."

              When asked why the Big Baby has not been accepted as the Chicago-style burger, Engler hesitates before answering. "Basically the Big Baby, it has been pointed out to me, is just a double cheeseburger," he said.

              "But it's a real blue-collar burger," he added, "with the name, which is always important, all just quietly sitting there on the South Side getting eaten by thousands and thousands of people for decades. But for some reason, people on the North Side have never heard of it."

              "And the reason is," he adds, "it's on the South Side. A lot of North Siders never make it down. I have a feeling a lot of the Southwest Side people who live around Midway Airport who've been eating Big Babys all their life would be surprised that the rest of the city is so deprived, that they don't have this great creation,cheap air jordans, one of the best burgers in Chicago, to hear them tell it."

              The Big Baby has inspired at least two gourmet versions, one by Ryan Poli. The Southwest Side native was chef at Perennial and Tavernita in Chicago, then traveled the world cooking and is now the chef at the critically acclaimed Catbird Seat restaurant in Nashville.

              "It's the quintessential burger," he said of the original. As for his Big Baby, which he featured at the now closed Little Market Brasserie, "I tried to keep true to the original, but we used a brioche sesame seed bun, spicy mayo, and Dijon mustard. Everything else was the same. I even kept the American cheese," said Poli. "But we made our own patties,cheap retro jordans, ground our own beef trim from dry-aged beef. And we made our own pickles."

              In his opinion as a globe-trotting chef, does his childhood burger deserve the title of the Chicago-style burger? "Yes," he answered, "If the Big Baby didn't deserve the title, then what would?"

                The 'it' Krauss spoke of is a regional championship, which the Mustangs had not won since 1976, when it was called a district title.

                Over the last 800 meters, Krauss sprinted down a descent. He passed two Highland Park runners. At the finish line, he caught up with Carrillo. Krauss' time of 15 minutes, 58.08 seconds was good for seventh place. Carrillo finished ninth (15:58.87).

                St. Clair placed fourth (15:50.90) to become the first Mundelein runner to earn a medal with a top-five finish in a regional since 2008. But more importantly, the Mustangs won the race, ending a 40-year state series championship drought. Mundelein (58 points) squeaked past Highland Park (62) for the regional title.

                "All season long the team has been special, and I'm proud of how they've responded to the pressures,cheap air jordans," Mundelein coach Kurt Rutz said.

                On a team loaded with underclassmen �� of the top seven at regionals, six were sophomores and freshmen �� Krauss is the hardened veteran.

                In 2015, Krauss did not compete for the Mustangs due to a back injury, but he remained visible to newcomers such as St. Clair, Carrillo and Alan Salgado.

                "I went to meets and cheered them on. I developed a relationship with some of the new guys and forged those relationships during track season (in 2016)," Krauss said. "I knew what they were capable of, and it motivated me to get back."

                Soon after track season, Krauss organized summer workouts. Twice a day, the Mustangs would run routes around the high school. Workouts were designed for high mileage. St. Clair ran 1,000 miles in 100 days, with Carrillo and Krauss also piling up high numbers.

                "I was still doing physical therapy (on his back) and I had to take a few more rest days,cheap jordan shoes," Krauss said. "What made it for all of us was the consistency. I love running with the guys next to me."

                The hard summer of training paid immediate dividends once the high school season started,cheap air jordans.

                Mundelein won the season-opening Lake County Invitational on Aug. 31. A runner-up finish followed at the Sept. 10 Wauconda Invitational. Competing against some of the state's best Class 3A teams at the Oct. 1 Peoria Invitational, held on the state meet course at Detweiller Park, the Mustangs took eighth out of 37 teams.

                A week before winning regionals, Mundelein took second place at the North Suburban Conference meet.

                "I think we are going to be good for several years,cheap retro jordans," Rutz said.

                Next up is the Class 3A Waukegan Sectional on Saturday at Waukegan Sports Park, the same course where Mundelein won the Lake County Invite.

                Krauss said he is healthy and ready,retro new jordans, along with his youthful Mustangs teammates, for an extended post season.

                "We want to be the first team to make it downstate in school history. We feel we have the team to do it," Krauss said.

                • < li> < ul> The audience came to Orchestra Hall on Wednesday evening to get a sense of what Philip Glass, the iconic and prolific American composer, author and winner of the 2016 Chicago Tribune Literary Prize was like in the flesh. And a vivid sense was what they got. After playing his "Metamorphosis II," a rippling, repetitive solo piano piece in his trademark minimalist style, Glass sat down for an onstage conversation with Tribune arts critic Howard Reich that was one of the most anticipated events of this year's Chicago Humanities Festival. Introduced by Tribune Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Bruce Dold as "one of the most brilliant composers in history," Glass,cheap jordans online, who will turn 80 in January,air jordans for cheap, spoke about his life and times in much the same laid-back manner that makes his Tribune Literary Prize-winning 2015 memoir, "Words Without Music" (Liveright) so compulsively readable. The award carries a prize of $10,000. In a freewheeling dialogue laced with anecdotes, he told of his experiences growing up in his native Baltimore, as a math and philosophy student in an accelerated college program at the University of Chicago (where he matriculated at 15), as a student of the famed musical pedagogue Nadia Boulanger in Paris,cheap air jordans, and of eking out a living driving cabs in New York in the 1970s when his composing career was just taking off. Philip Glass plays a short solo See more videos Glass spoke relatively little about his huge, influential, sometimes controversial body of work (including the revolutionary 1976 "Einstein on the Beach" and dozens of other operas, 10 symphonies and numerous film scores), how his music is made, or how it has made him a household name even among listeners averse to contemporary classical music. But he did offer candid insights into how the music of jazz greats like Charlie Parker ,cheap jordans for sale, Bud Powell and Lennie Tristano that he heard as a teenager in Chicago, and the classical works he absorbed during later studies at the Juilliard School, shaped the musician he is today. MOST READ ENTERTAINMENT NEWS THIS HOUR "I don't mind saying I'm inspired by the music of others," Glass said. "Whether it's Bartok or Bruckner or Lennie Tristano, it's all the same to me. One thing I learned working in my father's record store is that there's no classical music or jazz music �� there's just music. I was open to all kinds of music in the '60s at Juilliard, as were most of my classmates. It was very common for us to take a Beatles song and sing it in four-part harmony, or to dissect a John Coltrane piece." How, Glass was asked, did he come up with the idea for his first opera, "Einstein on the Beach," while driving a cab? He didn't answer the question directly, offering instead a nostalgic glimpse of his early years in the Big Apple. "I have to confess I actually liked driving a taxi," Glass said. "I loved New York,, and I got to know the Bronx, Bedford-Stuyvesant and other neighborhoods. There was always danger present �� I was saved by the police several times, and that was common in those days. I would drive from 4 in the afternoon until about 1 or 2 a.m. I'd write music until 5 or 6 a.m., then take the kids to school. I got to see the kids in the morning and when they got back from school. In those days, New York was much less expensive. And I could work 3-4 days a week. "So it was actually a good job. I had chosen this way to work. I wanted to be independent �� that was the most important thing to me. I didn't want to have to talk to the head of a music department about what I was doing. I didn't want to have to wait to see if someone would play my music or not. I was looking for freelance jobs where I could show up whenever I wanted to. I could work any day of the week I wanted to. And I would work for three or four weeks and then tour for 10 weeks. That went on for years." What, then, will people say about the music of Philip Glass 100 years from now? Philip Glass Philip Glass performs at the Symphony Center's Orchestra Hall for the Humanities Festival on Nov. 2, 2016,cheap retro jordans, in Chicago. (Kristan Lieb Chicago Tribune) "Who knows?" he shrugged. "Not every composer has survived. Paul Hindemith was a major composer, but when was the last time you heard his music played? Schubert was really just discovered 30-40 years after he died. The issue is the quality of the work �� that will determine whether it will fail or prevail." Unmentioned was the fact that Glass' 80th birthday on Jan. 31 will launch an extensive yearlong celebration here and abroad, including the premiere of his Symphony No. 11 at Carnegie Hall. If history is any indicator, through all the birthday hoopla Glass will remain as calm, unassuming and intensely focused on his composing and performing as ever. ? ?

                    Enjoy the ride, George. On Interstate 80, it's a 31-hour, 2,126-mile drive from Chicago to San Francisco, though a billionaire movie mogul probably makes trips like that in a private jet.

                    After nearly two years worth of off-putting, arrogant silence from Lucas, the supreme irony Friday was that it fell to him to announce that he was withdrawing his proposal to build his museum in Chicago.

                    Naturally, he took a parting shot at Friends of the Parks, the nonprofit environmental group that tied up his plans in federal court and was brutally demonized by Emanuel and other supporters of the museum.

                    "The actions initiated by Friends of (the) Parks and their recent attempts to extract concessions from the city have effectively overridden approvals received from numerous democratically elected bodies of government," Lucas said.

                    "Star Wars" creator George Lucas announced Friday he is abandoning plans to build the project in Chicago,cheap jordan shoes, ending months of debate and controversy. Lucas, who wanted to build a museum showcasing his art collection along the city's lakefront, said in a statement...
                    (Patrick M. OConnell and Bill Ruthhart)
                    There was no mention of U.S. District Judge John Darrah. (Unlike Donald Trump, Lucas at least had the good sense not to verbally assault a federal judge.)

                    It was Darrah who carefully weighed the ramifications of the public trust doctrine, which holds that governments are obligated to protect certain natural resources, like the formerly submerged lands along Chicago's lakefront,katrinrocks, for the public's use.

                    It was Darrah who let Friends of the Parks' case against Lucas proceed, thereby checking a "fix-is-in" political process that had Emanuel, the City Council,, Gov. Bruce Rauner and the General Assembly doing Lucas' bidding.

                    Though the case never went to trial, Darrah is the real hero of this titanic struggle. Without him, Friends of the Parks was powerless. Also without him,cheap jordans for sale, the case could have set a dangerous precedent. It would have allowed the powerful and wealthy to foist their vanity projects on the people's shoreline �� and control those edifices for decades,cheap jordans for sale, even centuries, to come.

                    The Lucas Museum now joins a long list of high-profile projects in Chicago that never made it off the drawing board, from the Civic Center Plaza to the Spire to Chicago Gateway Harbor.



                    And so, almost exactly two years to the day after he picked Chicago on June 25, 2014, Lucas is headed back to California, where his first plan for the museum was rejected by a national park board in San Francisco. The city he'll select has yet to be announced.

                    Some will say that the loss of this $743 million museum is a blow to Chicago's economy. That's true, but the pain could have been averted if Lucas had dropped his intransigence and accepted a site west of Lake Shore Drive. Such a switch would have demonstrated that the project truly was rooted in a desire to benefit the city's children, rather than build a monument to its namesake.

                    Others will claim that the museum could have extended Chicago's rich tradition of architectural innovation by realizing the design of Chinese architect Ma Yansong.

                    But that bizarre design �� which drew comparisons to Jabba the Hutt's palace, piles of road salt and nuclear power plants �� was never right for the lakefront. It was an icon wannabe rather than a modest, naturalistic statement. It would have been a preening object �� a product of the same arrogance as Lucas' telling silence.

                      "We've gone to court twice, and the judges simply say, 'Freedom of speech.' I'm sorry," Councilwoman Pat Schaadt, R-5th, said.

                      Griffith Police Chief Greg Mance told the crowd that the department received several harassment complaints Tuesday before the meeting and that the department will investigate each one.

                      Mance also said he had not received any sort of complaint before the meeting and that the process of investigating can be slow,cheap jordan shoes, because if something doesn't meet state code to the letter, it can't be prosecuted.

                      "If you have concrete information, we encourage you to report it, and we will investigate,cheap air jordans," Mance said.

                      Assurances from Council President Rick Ryfa, R-3rd, and Mance did little to assuage the crowd,cheap air jordans, however.

                      Highland resident Emily Hobson presented a petition with nearly 4,000 signatures asking the town to close the Griffith Town Tap and Lucille's, Creech's other bar. Hobson and Creech have engaged each other negatively over social media the past several months.

                      "I believe in freedom of speech, but I also believe in morals and the betterment of the community," Hobson said in a prepared speech. "Other local businesses should not suffer because of her comments."

                      Thomas Hentcher, of Griffith, spoke in Creech's favor, asking why people outside of the town were allowed to speak.

                      "All of this is hearsay, and they're complaining because they got their feelings hurt," he said.

                      To the idea that Creech's sign was obscene and shouldn't be seen by children,cheap real jordans, Ryfa agreed but said Trump's language has been everywhere, and taking it to court would likely be a waste of taxpayer money.

                      "This campaign has gone into the gutter, and it's impossible to have not seen it,cheap real jordans," Ryfa said.

                      This is the second time this year that something Creech put on the Griffith Town Tap marquee has caused controversy. In March, Creech changed the marquee to read, "Vote for Trump Black Olives Matter" before changing it to read "Vote for Trump Blue Lives Matter."

                      At the time, Creech told the Post-Tribune she doesn't like to bring unnecessary drama to her town and changed the sign after Griffith police alerted her to the possibility of threats made toward the bar.

                      Creech didn't respond to a request for comment.

                      • < li> < ul> Chicago Tribune Philip Roth novels don't usually make themselves at home on screen,katrinrocks, as anyone who slack-jawed their way through "The Human Stain" can attest. "Goodbye, Columbus," way back in 1969, was a different,cheap jordans online, more wickedly satiric matter. But when battling an excess of sincerity, Roth's carnal obsessions get boxed in, rather than opened up. In some adaptations (such as "Elegy," with Ben Kingsley and Penelope Cruz)the story's reduced to aging lions lusting after younger, damaged fawns, and the filmmakers have to work overtime to make the characters seem like people. "Indignation" is a bracing exception. It's beautifully acted and the tone is witty and grave. Writer-director James Schamus can't solve all the limitations of the source material: The female protagonist, a WASP goddess tormenting the Jewish narrator, remains more person-adjacent than an actual person. But the movie respects Roth's coming-of-age reverie while ever so gently questioning it, or at least tilting it sideways. MOST READ ENTERTAINMENT NEWS THIS HOUR The year is 1951, depicted by "Indignation" as an in-between state of drab decor and great worry. Marcus Messner, the exemplary straight-A son of a Newark butcher and his wife, is a young man leaving the nest. Friends and relatives are dying in Korea. A scholarship whisks Marcus off to fictional Winesburg College in Ohio (Roth took the name from Sherwood Anderson's short stories), where the student body comprises about 1,500 students, roughly 5 percent of them Jewish. In the college library one night, Marcus spies a leg dangling over the side of a chair a few tables from where he works behind the desk. This being Roth, that limb ruins Marcus for life. It belongs to Olivia Hutton, dazzlingly bright,cheap jordans for sale, curious, and sexually several laps ahead of Marcus. Their first date at a French restaurant is fraught with insecurity and promise. That promise is fulfilled, partially, an hour later, in the car Marcus borrows from his roommate,cheap air jordans, but virginal Marcus freaks out and avoids Olivia. Her own painful past comes out later. A confrontation with his roommates relocates Marcus to an isolated dorm room of his own, and puts him on a collision course with the school's smiling Christian puritan of a dean. This is the key scene in "Indignation," the scene between Marcus, played by Logan Lerman, and Dean Caudwell, played by Steppenwolf Theatre veteran Tracy Letts. It's a 16-minute one-act play, on film, and very nearly perfect. In a gorgeously finessed battle of wills and temperaments, Marcus defends his atheism (as well as his Judaism) against the dean's sidewinding slurs and insults. In Letts' hands, and his stunningly precise diction, this authority figure becomes a container for everything stultifying about mid-century America �� an America battling evil from within and without, as one character puts it. Lerman's excellent as Marcus, capturing his principles as well as his bullheadedness. Sarah Gadon's Olivia is no less fine. The character may be idealized, but from Roth's perspective, Marcus is a tablet waiting for someone to write his story on, and she's the shiksa to write it. As with so much of Roth,retro new jordans, the archetypes bleed over into cliches, and back again, and there's a lot to argue with in "Indignation." The prolific author, who was 75 when the book came out, is looking back at a time in his life, through the guise of fiction, only a few years before Roth's "Goodbye, Columbus" collection appeared on the scene in 1959. Schamus maintains a careful but never dull atmosphere of repressed energy throughout, and the period and Marcus' crises come alive in a series of two- and three-person scenes, notably with Marcus' parents (Linda Emond and Danny Burstein play the Newark couple, superbly), his roommates, and with Olivia, the golden girl with the scar on her wrist. With its heavy-duty string orchestration, Jay Wadley's musical score tries hard to make "Indignation" not just matter, but matter in a cosmically important way. Then again, at Marcus' age, in the time Roth writes about and first-time director Schamus re-creates so deftly,cheap air jordans, anything to do with sex and death automatically outranks the cosmos. There's no mystery, really, to why this movie works so much better than other Roth adaptations. All the self-important chauvinism makes dramatic sense when the characters are not quite boys and girls but not quite men and women. Like the music on the radios in 1951, something dangerous was about to happen. And American sexual mores belonged to an age about to die. Michael Phillips is a Tribune critic.

                          Dr. Zaher Sahloul, left, and Dr. John Kahler at the ruins of the Great Umayyad Mosque in the old city of Aleppo. The two U.S. doctors traveled to Aleppo in late June for the Syrian American Medical Society.

                          To hear Sahloul's stories is to take on some of his burden and lift the fog of war in Syria if only briefly. Eastern Aleppo is held by anti-government rebels. The fighting and politics in Syria are so complex and intractable that it's easy to shrug and focus elsewhere. Sahloul reminds us why that's unacceptable: because the innocent are suffering in a country with crucial stakes for U.S. national security. At a minimum, Americans should understand Aleppo's pain.

                          Sahloul visited us recently with two other Chicago doctors, Samer Attar and John Kahler, who went to Aleppo on behalf of the Syrian American Medical Society. Sahloul is no strategist or politician,cheap air jordans, but he feels that the Obama administration gave up on Syria. He's frustrated, and so are we. Since President Barack Obama's 2012 misguided declaration of a "red line" over Assad's use of chemical weapons, the U.S. receded, allowing Russian President Vladimir Putin to step in and prop up Assad.

                          "I follow every word on Syria, and (Obama) tends to put it on the back burner,cheap air jordans," Sahloul says of the multifaceted conflict that involves Assad,cheap jordans, Islamic State, the Kurds, Russians, Iranians and others. He notes that Obama's preferred name for Islamic State is ISIL instead of ISIS. "He calls it ISIL because the 'S' means Syria and that means failure."

                          Is there hope for Aleppo? The U.N. calls it a slaughterhouse. Sahloul says it is genocide. In recent days, Russia has declared temporary cease-fires to allow Aleppo's residents and wounded to flee, but people aren't leaving; they don't trust the offer �� and have nowhere to run. The bombing surely will resume and ultimately this ancient city may be destroyed.

                          Our most recent Syria editorial called for sanctions on Putin to drive him to the negotiating table. We know pressing him will take time and a commitment we haven't seen from the current occupant of the White House. Meanwhile, the American-led war against Islamic State in Iraq and Syria shows greater results. That means the temptation will be to focus efforts there, and avert our attention from Aleppo. Zaher Sahloul reminds us of the human cost of looking away.

                            • Restaurant cheap jordans openings Le Duck brin< li> < ul> Maddon's postgame interview was a stream of unyielding positivity, zen-like calm and rosy confidence. He praised the other team's pitching. He acknowledged his own team's shortcomings in a factual rather than critical manner. He refused to express feelings of defeat. "I'm not disappointed by any means except for the fact that we did not win," he said. Photos of the 2015 NL Manager of the Year. It was also classic Maddon, known as much for his upbeat style as he is for his unconventional approach to managing his team -- the roster shuffling, the themed road trips, the quirky stunts. After a Game 2 loss in last year's National League Championship Series put the Cubs down two games, he said "I have a real strong belief system in our guys ... you can't dwell on things like that." After a strong start to this season turned to a string of mid-May losses, Maddon remained positive despite a disappointing loss in St. Louis. "We worked good at-bats, we played really well in the field, we ran the bases well, and we lost the game," Maddon said at the time. "That's what I saw." And following two shutout losses in this year's pennant race, Maddon still kept his cool. "I can't get over the top and take a trip to negative town now just because we've had two bad days,cheap jordans online," he said. Again and again, Maddon's optimism is cited as one of the defining ways he leads his team -- one that has both upsides and downsides. "What typifies Maddon most of all is a rah-rah positivity, driven by an appreciation for how difficult this child's game is to play at the highest level," a Chicago Reader profile declared. "The lenses in his iconic horn rimmed glasses are always rose-colored," ESPN's Steve Wulf wrote in a 2013 feature, when Maddon was managing the Tampa Bay Rays. In another 2013 profile, the Rays' executive vice president of baseball operations called him "a serial optimist. That can be his worst quality, too. Joe is almost too loyal. He has patience with guys that maybe we should move on from." Following Joe Maddon's lead, Cubs stay relaxed and bats break loose David Haugh Everything about the situation facing the Cubs before their 10-2 victory Wednesday at Dodger Stadium suggested panic.

So the Cubs relaxed in Game 4 of the National League Championship Series, following the lead of their California-cool... (David Haugh) That optimist's approach has not only won him plaudits from baseball pundits, but from those who see lessons for managers beyond baseball's fields. Crain's Chicago Business cited how he "pumps the lineup with struggling hitters," a way to show them he believes in their talent. A management professor at Northwestern University told Chicago Magazine "What Maddon wants to do is create a culture that rewards players for good work but doesn't limit their inventiveness and individuality." How Maddon's positivity plays as the World Series shakes out remains to be seen. Too much optimism in the face of defeat can end up looking like overconfidence. It can seem mismatched with the urgency needed when the stakes are highest,, especially for a manager who's been called a "half hipster-shrink." But for Maddon's players, it's a wise choice over the alternative. All too often, sports leaders seem to think their audience in postgame interviews are the people in front of them: The reporters looking for a close-up, critical analysis of what went wrong in a losing game -- and how they intend to fix it. Maddon, meanwhile, seems to be putting his players first,cheap retro jordans, knowing they too will hear his words and hear his confidence. Phrases like "It's the first game. I'm fine, we're fine," seem directly spoken to them.

But now that he's the first manager to take the Cubs to a World Series since Charlie Grimm in 1945, his sole task is to outmaneuver Indians manager Terry Francona,... (Paul Sullivan) Baseball is a game of failure. One where hitting just 3 out of 10 pitches can make you a star. In that world, propping players up makes more sense than cutting them down. Reassurance can be a better strategy than public criticism. That's especially true when your team is not only among the youngest and most hyped teams ever to play the game -- but facing the pressure of becoming the first Cubs team to win a World Series title since the Ford Model T was first introduced. Maddon's calm, confident positivity could go a long way with his players if he can sustain it. As he said,cheap jordan shoes, it's only the first game.
