Forensic artists put different faces on 2,800-year-old mummy

I agree with the previous two postings - they could have at least pointed readers in the direction of pictures.  (Jun 21, 2009 | post #3)

Swine flu: Strain not as deadly as suspected

I must add my agreement to this posting. I have no faith in WHO or the CDC at this point. One day WHO states they have their arms around the problem because the death toll in Mexico is beginning to flatten, the next day WHO raises the pandemic rating to one notch below a worldwide pandemic, now everyone is stating that this is not as bad as first suspected. But the genie has been let out of the bottle ! The scare is out there and people are very nervous and so are businesses. The Cinco de Mayo celebration at Navy Pier is cancelled. All the effort that went int that. My wife and I were planning to go to Vegas in June. We had not booked tickets or rooms yet but we postponed the trip. So we are part of the nervous crowd also.  (May 2, 2009 | post #32)

faith or family?

I guess I am more generous in my estimates where the Catholic Church fits in. I always say they are 400 years behind which would put them at 1600  (Apr 5, 2009 | post #205)

Sleeping pill use grows as economy keeps people up at night

I have heard this from a number of people including the Nyquil ads that it helps you relax. I took Nyquil when it first came out to get rid of the cold symptoms that I was experiencing. I received no rest. I felt I was wired for almost 24 hours. I never used it again.  (Apr 4, 2009 | post #7)

Tammy Duckworth: Illinois native's nomination to Veterans...

I agree with your comments completely. Tammy Duckworth has run on a platform of I am a disabled veteran so I have all the qualifications I need to be in this position. I did not vote for her when she ran for Congress because she was not qualified then and remains unqualified.  (Apr 4, 2009 | post #49)

Skunk's stink leaves a trail of woe

I agree with your comments. I remember this absolutely crazy story when it came out and I thought it was absolutely nuts then and absolutely nuts now. I also had a skunk incident. A mama built a nest and had babies under a 3 season room that I had built. Terrible smell - oh yes, but for the most part, all that was needed was a lot of cleaning and a lot of airing out after the skunks were trapped (no 40 foot trench was dug). Some things got discarded (the rug from the room never lost the smell) but gutting the home, throwing away all the furniture and clothing - what a bunch of nut balls. Getting hit by a skunk or skunks is no fun and I do not want to down play the effort to get back to normal but this family's actions were just outrageous and whatever expert they used was no expert.  (Mar 28, 2009 | post #50)

Metra service: Why Metra is riding slow train to future

I could not believe how negative the article was - I take the Metra daily to and from downtown. I never thought it was as bad as the article states and still don't. Yes, I would like them to take credit cards - but I go prepared to purchase tickets using cash. The website is not that bad - it needs work but I can find schedules, fares, etc. Now the one point, I do agree with is the use of loud speakers at stations to inform the riders of a problem - that does not work.  (Mar 23, 2009 | post #265)

Chicago to "Let Friendship Shine" with Olympics

I liked "stir the soul" better. Let friendship shine just doesn't do it for me.  (Mar 14, 2009 | post #45)

Ranting like extreme wrestling-badder the better

I totally agree with the "dream bubble" concept. I too have heard people on cell phones giving out the most private information as if no one could hear. I heard one individual start a mortgage application over the phone on the train, tried to say that is not a good idea, but was told to mind my own business and the information just continued to spill out - phone numbers, addresses, gross wages, ssn, credit card numbers.  (Mar 13, 2009 | post #25)

A faithful diner's last will and condiments

I enjoyed this article and it is a great thing that he left his fortune to the college. What I don't understand is the Tribune and its url to the article. It uses the term "miserly " in the link but the article title does not have that word in it.  (Mar 8, 2009 | post #8)
