Paul Bauer — husband, father,
neighbor and good Chicago cop

A daughter’s father died today. A woman’s husband died. A Chicago Police officer died. We, as a city, so often see only the last. The officer in his uniform, the symbol of law and order, of authority and protection. If only we could see them all — the husband and the family man, the friend and the neighbor, the officer on the job. If only we could see them all the time, not just when an officer is killed in the line of duty. When it is too late.(snip) Somewhere today, a wife and a daughter are crying, and so

The photo of Cmdr. Bauer and his daughter taken at the 2010 Father´s Day Mass is heartbreaking.

A close relative of mime didn´t know him well but had paths cross enough to attest to the claims that he was one exceptionally fine human being. I don´t know about the rest of you but I tend to wonder in these circumstances if there isn´t a bit of hyperbole at times. Just thought I´d share that all of the praise that is being heaped upon this man is quite appropriate, he was the great guy he´s been portrayed to have been. A horrible loss.

I don´t like the commie times phony "hype".
I don´t like their "staff".
I think they´re full of it.
I was born there in 1949.
I know that place inside and out.
Couldn´t wait to get out of there.

That said, Chicago is a horrible place to die.....A good man was murdered. By a thug from the south side with a LONG felony record.
You know who that means...

RIP Commander Bauer

I think of the closing line in The Bridges of toko Ri, where the admiral, after losing a fighter pilot and the rescue helo crew, asks, rhetorically, "Where do we find such men?"

The same for our police and military heroes. Thank God that we still can find them, to run to the sound of gunfire, to stop the evildoers here and abroad.

RIP, Commander. Well done, sir. So sorry for this outcome.

The man who co-wrote “The Art of the Deal” said Sunday he believes President Trump’s faculties are diminishing — and that he feels obligated to sound the alarm. “We are in a true emergency,” Tony Schwartz said on CNN Sunday. “And the accelerated rate at which his breakdown or decompensation is occurring is cause for us, and certainly for me, to come on to TV more often, to tweet more often.” Schwartz told CNN’s Brian Stelter that he felt comfortable making that assessment because he had “spent an enormous time with [Trump] over a period of 18 months.”(snip)Stelter pointed out that Schwartz

Bucking the wishes of his own police department and the Illinois State Police, Mayor Rahm Emanuel said Friday that he supports allowing protesters — led by the Rev. Michael Pfleger — onto the Dan Ryan Expressway on Saturday, as part of what’s expected to be a significant anti-violence march.(Snip) Emanuel’s comments came even as top cops from the Chicago and Illinois State police have asked Pfleger publicly not to march onto the Dan Ryan and keep the march to neighborhoods. On Tuesday, Illinois State Police Director Leo Schmitz, who previously commanded the CPD’s Englewood District, just north of St. Sabina,

Just a week before, it was announced that the 90-year-old would be participating in a hunger strike to protest President Trump´s immigration policies on the southern border.

As many as 80,000 Illinois home health care workers will get a second shot at recovering $32 million in union fees, following the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark decision earlier this week in a case over payments to unions. The Supreme Court on Thursday ordered the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals to reconsider its decision last year in a case involving whether the home health care workers, paid with Medicaid dollars, should be able to recoup money the state took out of their paychecks for “fair share” union fees between 2008 and 2014. Those “fair share” fees covered the costs of

Mayoral challengers, academic experts and aldermen raised caution flags Thursday about Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s choice of visionary billionaire Elon Musk to build a high-speed transit system between downtown and O’Hare Airport. From environmental impacts, regulatory approvals and financing costs to what lies underground and Musk’s unproven, low-cost, high-speed tunneling technology, experts and critics raised serious questions about whether or not the $1 billion project would ever get built. “This is a stretch.

The officer was unharmed. The man drove off and was spotted, again, near Oak and Rush streets.(Snip)“It’s troubling,” Brown said. “This is right in the middle of the most affluent part of Chicago.

Chicago’s City Hall on Friday for the first time put a price tag on the cost to overhaul the roads in and around Jackson Park for the Obama Presidential Center and a related golf course merger: roughly $175 million, with potential funding sources to include the state of Illinois. If funding from the financially frail Illinois government is to be a major source for paying for the Obama Center roadway work, it could emerge as a campaign issue in the race for governor and other down-ticket contests. Last October, the Chicago Sun-Times reported how the Democratic leaders who control the

Ohio Gov. John Kasich on Sunday said the GOP needs to find a unifying message to tamp down the “chaotic environment” that seems to dominate political discourse today, citing a narrow victory for Republican Troy Balderson in a special congressional election that should have been a slam dunk for his party. Mr. Balderson appears to have squeaked out a win in Ohio’s 12th Congressional District, where Republicans previously won with “overwhelming numbers,” as the governor put it. That’s raising fears among Republicans about their prospects in swing districts this November. “What you had is a, I think, a message from

Professional football is back and so are the take-a-knee protests, but the NFL isn’t planning on disciplining players who refuse to stand during the national anthem—at least for now. Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch sat on the bench while the anthem played before Friday night’s preseason game, just as he did last year, and Miami Dolphins receivers Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson knelt prior to the Thursday game in Miami. In a statement, the NFL said it was still engaged in “constructive discussions with the NFL Players Association regarding the anthem and issues of equality and social justice that

"The dirty war on the free press must end." That´s the idea behind an unusual editorial-writing initiative that has enlisted scores of newspapers across America. The Boston Globe has been contacting newspaper editorial boards and proposing a "coordinated response" to President Trump´s escalating "enemy of the people" rhetoric. "We propose to publish an editorial on August 16 on the dangers of the administration´s assault on the press and ask others to commit to publishing their own editorials on the same date," The Globe said in its pitch to fellow papers.

Tennessee has carried out its first execution in nearly a decade using a controversial cocktail of drugs including a lethal ingredient described by the Supreme Court as "chemically burning at the stake". Billy Ray Irick, an inmate convicted of the 1985 rape and murder of seven-year-old Paula Dyer, received a three-drug injection on Thursday night after the US Supreme Court denied a final request to stay his execution. The lethal injection consisted of midazolam, used as sedative during an execution, a muscle-relaxer called vecuronium bromide, and compounded potassium chloride, the agent that stops the heart.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, girl socialist, may know what the Gini coefficient is, but she doesn’t know much else. The Washington Post fact checked a series of recent claims by Ocasio-Cortez and found all of them to be false. Let’s look at each claim: 1. “Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs. Unemployment is low because people are working 60, 70, 80 hours a week and can barely feed their family.” Wrong. Bureau of Labor Statistics data shows that the percentage of people working two jobs has actually declined since the Great Recession. It hovers at around 5 percent these days. And the average

The sergeant killed the Islamic State commander with a .50 Calibre machine gun, shooting him in the chest. The Islamist´s arm and shoulder were torn off due to the force of the bullet and he died instantly. The jihadi was on a British and US kill list.

I hate to break it to parents who just sent their college-admission-minded progeny to the Tibetan Plateau to churn yak butter, but the smartest summer I ever spent was in secretarial school. This was back when I was 17, and it wasn’t grist for an essay about a transformative communion with people outside my clique. I wasn’t ripping the blinders from my eyes. I was typing — hour upon hour, day after day, with my shoulders back and my spine straight and my hands just so.

It was Emma Weibel’s lucky day. The Lake Oswego, Ore., resident received a letter from someone named Mike Ross informing her that an Aneta Weibel had died and left a $6-million estate. Ross said he wanted to have Emma declared Aneta’s next of kin so she could inherit the bulk of the money, with a modest portion for him for his efforts. “The whole thing is, of course, a hoax,” Weibel, 79, told me. “But I can see this could be taken seriously by some people.” I can see that too.

David Cameron had to wait three days to speak to Barack Obama after Syrian President Bashar al-Assad´s horrifying chemical attack on his own people, a new book claims. The former prime minister was on holiday in Cornwall when he learned Assad unleashed the deadly nerve agent sarin near Damascus, killing more than 1,000 people, many of whom were children, on Wednesday, August 21, 2013. Outraged, Cameron sprang into action and began his attempt to drum up support for a show of force against Assad, calling on Obama as a key ally.But the two leaders couldn´t arrange for a secure line

BEDMINSTER, N.J. — President Trump escalated his attacks on Saturday against his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, describing him as “scared stiff” by an issue related to the Russia investigation that the president has privately railed to his aides has received insufficient news coverage. Mr. Trump’s latest broadside included some of his harshest language yet against Mr. Sessions, whom the president begrudges for recusing himself from the Justice Department’s investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials in 2016. “I have never seen anything so Rigged in my life,” Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter, referring to reports about
