1000s of Illinoisans traveling to Women's March on Washington Jan. 21

    As the date draws closer for what is expected to be one of the largest demonstrations in Washington, D.C. in recent times, Illinois marchers and the Illinois Chapter organizers are in final stages of preparation for the Women's March on Washington. The March is taking place Saturday, Jan.

    "As the date draws closer for what is expected to be one of the largest demonstrations in Washington, D.C. in recent times,..."

    Except, of course, for the annual pro-life March for Life that has taken place in Washington since 1974, that the main stream media never reports on or covers...

    From Wikipedia: "Between 2003 and 2009, the march had an attendance of around 250,000, but this number has since increased. The 2011 and 2012 marches drew an estimated 400,000 each, the 2013 march drew an estimated 650,000."

    Even with an impending blizzard last year, 2016, the estimate of marchers was 250,000.

    But I bet most of you never even knew it happened...

    No bias in the media. No, none at all.

  • How cute, more sore winning. Unfortunately for you, the mainstream media does cover that march of lying hypocritical bigoted "Christians."

  • jaye els Returned to Hyde Park Kenwood

    Can these Illinois women please "March" all the useless Lib Leftist women pols of this town/state

    Tammy Duckworth, Tonnie P, Kim Fox, Loretta Linch - can they march out of our state/city and never come back?

    How about we get some real men to lead this down and expel all the gang members, illegal alien cartel members?

    While researching this story at a local watering hole, I caught sight of a man in the mirror behind the bar. An oblivious middle-aged schlump indigenous to these parts, he was busy tearing flesh from bone, lips curled into a rictus of orange ecstasy, gristle and ligaments dangling between his incisors.

    17 Of The Best Independent Bookstores In Chicago
    Independent bookstores have taken a beating since the arrival of big box chains, the internet and e-readers. But some book stores are not only surviving, but thriving. Some of the stores fill a niche, like stocking the weirdest sci-fi or zines. Others create a community with their events calendar.

  • d3 There's a used bookstore on Taylor St. near Mario's Lemonade stand that carries computer programming books. I've even picked up books that professors from Northwestern University write specifically for their classes and publish themselves. The best used bookstore, in my opinion, in Chicago is Powell's in Hyde Park. You can find books there on a variety of subjects that you won't find anywhere. I always prefer to patronize independent bookstores rather than Amazon. Jeff Bezos is an ahole who screws workers, and has worked to screw artists as well.

  • Yes, esp. for academic, Powell's is the best around here - using it for over 30 years
