I Believe...

By Don Hall

...that anyone surprised that Trumpcare saves the best parts of Obamacare for Congress hasn't been paying attention to politics their entire lifetime. Self-service by public officials is as old and traditional as public officials.

...that segregation within communities is most often detrimental to those communities but those seeking control of the agenda are bound to find ways to become segregated anyway. The overwhelming desire to be the Top Dog is simply too compelling.

...that the strangest thing about our national response to President Barack Obama is that while we crave to hear him speak, we almost never take his words to heart.

...that the accusation of fragility is a double-edged sword. You can't look me in the eye and legitimately accuse me of suffering from it if you seriously believe that your offense at words equals genuine harm.

...that one of the best parts of spending a few days in NYC for events business is that when you come back to Chicago, it seems so much better than when you left.
