I never thought to try Safari, but I can say that Chrome in the local market won't access Facebook messages at all. "FB only wants what's best for us" my foot. Count me in with those who resent being told I have to install another app, for no reason other than because they say to.

As far as Trump goes, he brought out celebrities when the establishment politicians would have nothing to do with him (a choice he continues to prove them correct on). I can't imagine my opinion being swayed by someone who is paid obscene amounts of money to pretend to be something he's not. (I have to add, I see evidence every day that some people are influenced by celebs with more money than brains.) As for the "big political guns" brought out by the DNC, I realize they all have an agenda - to keep their way of thinking alive in government - and will say and do just about anything in order to maintain their status quo. But I think once the government leans too far to either side, that's when all the trouble begins. We need a moderate, common sense base to hold the extremism in check that party zealots on both sides fantasize over.
Neither candidate can claim theirs is a mandate from the people. Both parties advertise their candidate as "At least he or she isn't THEIR candidate!" That's hardly a reason to endorse either of the terrible choices we have this time around.

There undoubtedly are county residents who share Cafaro’s view that Oakhill Renaissance is a money pit. - See more at: http://www.vindy.com/news/2016/jul/28...
That wasn't why Cafaro opposed the relocation of those government offices. He opposed them because they were moving out of property he, Cafaro, owns. He opposed himself losing that rent money.
Myself, I'd have rather seen the county buy the former South Side Hospital, knock down the aging, single-purpose structure, and build what they need.

He wins. He tried to kill a sitting US president, escaped any jail time, and is now free and without any criminal record.
This is why the ever-increasing number of people claiming to be mentally defective should be GUILTY by reason of insanity. They did it - they're guilty. The insanity might be why they did it, but they did it.
So what's Hinckley going to do now - get a job at the local McDonald's? How's he going to support himself?

So The DNC gets a pass on their favoring Hillary and skewing things in her favor? Nobody is going to stand up and say "Wait a minute - if things had been done by the book, this could be a completely different outcome!" ??
I guess the 1% has determined who our choices will be, and that's that.
I wonder where we'll be in 4 years, with either Hillary or Donald at the helm. I see disaster either way.

As I said yesterday, the CVNP group needs to understand MCP's recent history, and the resulting attitude of the public, before they obligate themselves to any sort of merger. I realize the MCP groups are trying to regain support, but I really think their best bet would be to lie low for a year or two. All keeping MCP in the news is doing is keeping peoples' memories fresh with regard to the ill will the park board recently generated upon itself.

In the interest of honesty and full disclosure, the Mill Creek Park groups need to start out by informing the CVNP group(s) that Mill Creek Park isn't going to get any levies passed for at least several decades. And they need to be honest and admit this is do because the public felt, and still feels, betrayed and lied to with regard to their last levy.

They need to subpoena the van driver's cell phone records. He was probably chasing Pokemon while driving. That's probably why he veered out of his lane like that. If not that, he was probably texting or jabbering.
Maybe we need buttons that say Motorcyclists' Lives Matter!!!

Why would he turn himself in? It was clearly the knife's fault. We should ban all knives! Everyone turn in your knives to the nearest police station, and we'll all sleep safer tonight.
