It’s called The Region. If you know someone from the NW part of Indiana, call it that. We’re south of that area a little but it’s as bad as it sounds. Basically Chicago with white trash.

Both my wife and I are 60+ year 'Region Rats'. Living in the town just south of Highland, this has been our Meijer store for years. It is in a thriving business area full of newer stores, much commerce and lots of flowing $$. Unfortunately we occasionally get invaded from the east, north, and especially west by an unruly, unlawful, and uncivilized element. We desperately need a wall between us and the blue state of Illinois! Now retired, we plan to move further south but must stay in this area now to care for our aging parents. All told it's a pretty good area normally, and our Indiana state, county, and municipal police are very good and very serious about stopping crime.

The excuse for providing lavish welfare benefits once was that unless they were given Free Stuff, they'd be forced to steal. Now that they steal anyway, cell phones included (which they also get for free), how about cutting off the freebies.

I was born and raised in The Region. Born in Hammond, graduate of Highland High School. Parents later moved to Munster. I didn't realize the wonderful people there were "white trash". The people I knew would give you the shirt off their back, were good neighbors and proud Americans. Plenty of lovely homes that are well-cared for--many quite exclusive and expensive. Lots of sketchier types of people in Gary, East Chicago, and other spots. As with most areas, there is a mix of people.

I guess the shops in Chicago have been picked clean, so the thugs are moving to greener pastures.

Students at the University of Chicago are speaking out against their school’s recent decision to mandate COVID-19 boosters for students ahead of their return to campus for the upcoming semester. The editorial staff of The Chicago Thinker rightfully noted how the decision to mandate boosters for the school’s student body “is demonstrably unsafe, ineffective, unnecessary, inconsistent, and unethical.”(Snip)“Similarly, the CDC’s initial recommendation that Americans under the age of 65 receive boosters was made against the counsel of its own Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, which voted to recommend boosters only for those over the age of 65 or who have underlying conditions.

Mayor Eric Adams has named former NYPD chief Philip Banks — an unindicted co-conspirator in a sweeping federal police corruption case — the deputy mayor of public safety, City Hall officials confirmed Friday. Banks, who’s long been rumored to be appointed to the reinstituted post by Adams, will return to public office nearly eight years after abruptly resigning (Snip) feds probed “hundreds of thousands” of dollars in Banks’ account as part of the investigation into Jona Rechnitz and Jeremy Reichberg, who bribed cops with hookers and jewelry. Banks was never charged in the case but later named by the feds as an unindicted co-conspirator.

An angry Floridian has a message for their snowbird neighbors: If you’re woke, go back to New York. A number of cars with New York license plates parked on Palm Beach streets received notices on their windows over the weekend urging them to leave if they lean left politically, police said. “If you are one of those ‘woke’ people — leave Florida. You will be happier elsewhere, as will we,” reads the missive, typed in all capital letters.

Most Hall of Fame/MVP voters will at least wait until after the voting is over before they reveal that they’re too stupid and petty to vote on such matters. Then there’s Hub Arkush. Arkush, a longtime Chicago sportswriter and one of 50 people chosen by the Associated Press to cast a vote for the NFL MVP Award, told Chicago’s 670 The Score that he will not vote for Packers QB Aaron Rodgers because he is a “bad guy” and the “biggest jerk in the league.” Though, it doesn’t take much between the line reading to realize Arkush just hates Rodgers for not telling people he was unvaccinated.

A group of Republican-led states slammed Nasdaq’s implementation of a diversity disclosure rule for corporate boards this week, arguing in a court filing that the requirement is illegal and unconstitutional.

Most Americans today have a romanticized (and extraordinarily narrow) historical understanding of the conflict that we call the Civil War. In their imaginations, it goes something like this: With passions inflamed by a moral renaissance in the North regarding the institution of slavery in the South, the two sides decided to go to war over the issue. In the end, the evil South was righteously razed by the armies of the North, and thus, slavery was ended, and the former slaves made American citizens, as Abraham Lincoln intended.

I live in the Fort Worth area and one of the places that I enjoy going for some great comfort food is the West Side Cafe. It has some great fluffy western omelettes and wonderful chicken fried steak. But truly, everything is good there. It was hard to get a better breakfast than one of their omelettes, their sausage, and their thick, but wonderful rye bread. They source very good products. But a couple of months ago, I ordered the rye bread and they said it was out — that it was a supply chain issue. It hasn’t come back. I thought, “Dang, Brandon even got my rye bread!”

Former President Trump is taking a dig at politicians like Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis who refuse to say if they got the COVID-19 vaccine booster shot. Calling those who evade the booster question “gutless,” Trump suggested that they are trying to avoid offending anti-vaxxer supporters even though they know the booster shot saves lives. “They don’t want to say it. Because they’re gutless,” Trump said in a new interview with the far-right One America Network. “You got to say it. Whether you had it or not. Say it.” Trump didn’t name DeSantis in the interview. But there is little doubt he was referring to the rising GOP star,

Getting Britain’s homes insulated is the cornerstone of the Government’s green energy policy and an obsession for road-blocking eco-protesters. But the scale of damp-related problems linked to cavity wall insulation is so serious that an MP is calling for an independent inquiry to improve protection for householders. One expert has estimated that up to two million homes may have problems as a result of insulation being pumped into the cavity between outside and inside walls. In some extreme cases, the resulting problems of damp and mould inside the house have rendered properties worthless and unsellable.(Snip)Fixing cavity wall insulation disasters can cost tens of thousands of pounds.
