    Tavon Tanner, a bullet, and what happened on the streets of Chicago

    He wanted to see the bullet. For weeks, he had felt it, a bump and an ache, lodged just below his left shoulder. Sometimes other kids asked if they could touch it, and he'd say yes, but not too hard. If asked, he might pull up his shirt and show the long, fresh scar that snaked from his breastbone...

    2017 was the year of the reckoning

    Today I nominate the word “reckoning” as the 2017 word of the year. Forget “complicit,” the word that Dictionary.com recently anointed as the year’s top word.

    Al Franken as Senator Mr. Clean takes on the Dems' old sins

    In his dramatic kinda-sorta almost resignation speech, Sen. Al Franken, the Minnesota Democrat accused of serial groping, isn’t really retiring. Not yet. First he’ll help Democrats forge a weapon against President Donald Trump and the Republicans for the 2018 midterm elections. So what is that...

  • We owe so very much to great teachers who shaped us

    We owe so very much to great teachers who shaped us

    I’ve been thinking about teachers lately, and how they leave their mark on their students, how they shape them. I had time to think about it the other evening, standing before a coffin at a wake for Gary Korhonen, the legendary football coach at Richards High School in Oak Lawn, a national coach...
