A question about your editorial, "the overriding issue is which candidate is best positioned to deliver for the Quad-Cities area."

Forget the fact that this attitude, here and throughout the state, has put this state in such a terrible financial position. Is there one worse?

And you use Amtrak as an example. Is there any better example of pouring money down a rat hole? There is only one line, in the Northeast, that makes a profit. All the rest are losers! But get on board the gravy train.

Any Democratic legislator dances to the tune played by Michael Madigan and John Cullerton. Stand up to them, and you're dead politically.

The most honest evaluation of the state's situation, that I've read, comes from Scott Reeder in your Sunday edition. Nowhere else do we get a meaningful report.

Is it any wonder that the print media is slowly but inexorably becoming a minor factor in accurately informing the public?
