Terrorism: Boston Marathon explosion; 3 killed, 130 wounded. Undefined as terrorism: Texas Adair fertilizer plant explosion; 14 killed, $100 million in damages. Causation: illegal storage of ammonium nitrates. Since Newtown at least 71 children killed with guns. Which is more terrifying?

All health care employees that steal from the elderly need to have their sentence doubled. Taking advantage of those that can’t defend themselves is beyond cruel.

Ex-Lake County Clerk Thomas Philpot continues to appeal his conviction for theft and mail fraud. He should just shut up and serve his remaining one-year or so sentence.

Commissioner Michael Repay would not vote to veto a county income tax even though he said he would when he was running for office in 2012. That makes him a liar.

Mark Sanford won the race in South Carolina because he had the “R” behind his name. That was more important than his sordid past.
