Blaska's Bring It!

with David Blaska


What about the police officer?

Madison has heard a lot about a troubled young man named Anthony Terrell Robinson. We have heard how he was loved by his family, how he was torn between two worlds — academic achievement on the one hand, drugs and violence on the other. Now his name is being used in a larger cause to delegitimize public order, prey upon liberal guilt, and excuse away the failures of the Great Society.

Young and Foolish, ‘crimes of poverty,’ and ‘white privilege’ have had their 15 minutes

Tell us this, Brandi Grayson: Were the three shootings over the weekend on the southwest side and at West Towne Mall “crimes of poverty”? Tell us this, Paul Fanlund: Are police the problem or the solution? Tell us this, County Sup. Leland Pan: Is the county jail an investment in a livable community?

I am blown away by Madison Police Chief Mike Koval and said so Monday evening at the last of his recent series of community meetings, attended by a good 100 citizens at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church on Raymond Road in Meadowood.

‘Fascism has come to Illinois’

A Republican has been elected governor of our neighbor to the south, breaking 12 years of uninterrupted Democratic hegemony. That’s cause for name-calling and conspiracy mongering among the paranoid Left.
