            Illinois is hurting. Red states and blue states are hurting — and desperate for a real federal rescue

            The federal government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic should look beyond handing out trillion-dollar Band-Aids. It should roll out in the spirit of a modern day New Deal, with an eye toward addressing historic inequities

            Suspend the Freedom of Information Act? Even during a pandemic, that’s a horrible idea

            No reporter wants saving lives to take a back seat to handing over public documents. But Gov. Pritzker was right to nix the idea of a blanket suspension of FOIA.

            CDC delivers an Easter Day message: Love thy neighbor by social distancing

            A new Chicago-based study shows how quickly COVID-19 can spread among people who partake in the ordinary activities that come with friendship, love and faith.

            Slashing city spending would be inane at a time when Chicagoans need government most

            We disagree with those who say Mayor Lori Lightfoot should scale back city government right now to save money. Does anybody believe that trimming jobs at, say, Streets and San would make a bit of difference in sparing a financial reckoning?

            How to avoid a national voting disaster on Nov. 3

            Every state must prepare now for the worst-case scenario because of COVID-19. In a matter of weeks, it will be too late.

            Why COVID-19 is raging through Chicago’s black neighborhoods — and what must be done

            Seventy-two percent of Chicagoans who have died of COVID-19 are African American. Social and economic factors play a role.

            In the war on COVID-19, lawmakers must deliver for the U.S. Postal Service

            We disagree with lawmakers’ astonishingly shortsighted move last month to exclude the financially troubled postal service from the $2.2 trillion coronavirus bailout. The agency is on the front line in the fight against COVID-19.

            David Brown brings big city experience and a remarkable personal story to Chicago’s top cop job

            This is a cop who has seen both sides of the coin, which he says has made him wiser. We expect it would.

            Every state — including 12 slackers — must join the fight to beat COVID-19

            A nationwide lockdown by President Trump is unlikely and possibly unconstitutional. It’s up to our nation’s governors to do what’s right to beat the coronavirus.

            We can’t allow fear to go viral and erode our civil liberties

            An ill advised, and now rescinded, policing tactic on the West Side illustrates the kind of threat to our civil liberties that crops up in a crisis. We saw it after 9-11, and now again.

            Ignore the mixed messages and wear that mask

            We are learning that masks can provide a measure of protection from the coronavirus if used properly. And the CDC may soon reverse itself and encourage people to wear face coverings during the pandemic.

            Remote learning OK, but school in July might be needed to really get kids back on track

            Public schools might shut down for the rest of the academic year because of the coronavirus. We’re fine with that, providing mandatory summer school follows once things are safe.

            Doing without tree-trimming and other city services will help us beat COVID-19

            No one likes staying inside or losing services, but both are necessary. It’s part of the new world we are living in.

            Does the coronavirus economic stimulus do enough for the 99%?

            Our early read is that the package could have been crafted to do more for average Americans and small businesses rocked by layoffs and lost commerce. But we’ll give Congress this: It’s at least a start toward helping those who have lost their livelihoods.

            Stay 上海11选5走势图. Save lives. It’s as simple as that, Chicago

            Stubborn residents who willfully ignored orders and congregated on the lakefront forced Mayor Lightfoot’s hand, and now we’re all paying the price. So be it.

            Bailout might keep public transit from becoming a coronavirus casualty, but more help will be needed soon

            Transit agencies are likely to hemorrhage millions more over the next few months and could be in need of another substantial infusion by summer.

            Saving the economy is secondary to saving lives during a pandemic

            The president wants the economy "raring to go" by Easter. That’s not only nonsense, it’s life threatening.

            Illinois should move state tax filing deadline to July 15 so it matches the feds’
