Vote early and vote often was a popular phrase uttered in Chicago before elections, but it was intended as tongue-in-cheek.

One strange and very sad absolute truth has come to the forefront of the thinking of many people. While CV19 is a serious matter, the response has been flawed. Flawed?  Truly, a misdirection and confusion at best. According to the latest statistics available from the CDC, the total number of people that have expired from CV is approximately (based on my...
