Until this Christmas I would have said exactly the same as most people here - celebrity deaths don't affect me that much. I think generally that's still true, but I do feel kind of blown away by Carrie Fisher's death. She seemed to grow up from the immortal Pricess Leia into this beautiful, funny, ...

You may be sitting home at your computer tonight, but Obama is partying the night away at the taxpayer's expense in the White House with all his big time millionaire and billionaire celebrity pals. No press allowed . Reporters out on the street have seen Steven Spielberg, Meryl Streep, David Letter...

Probably not, going by Romney's results. Trump is a different animal to Romney. Because of the narcissist Obama is and his endorsement of Clinton, his pride would have taken a real kick. He needs to reassure himself. Obama a narcissist? Compared to Trump, he's the most humble, selfless man on earth...

When hasn't Chicago been plagued with violence? Whether it was gang wars - along with unintended casualties - fought for supremacy in illegal booze production and sales back in Al Capone's day, or street gangs fighting over turf in their illegal drug business, this has been going on for a long, lon...

I think we could simplify this by saying to mourn you need an "emotional link" to the departed. Therefore people who "swooned" when they listened to Elvis sing, shouldn't have seemed odd when they cried when he died. Similarly I felt sad when Martin, John, and Robert (and many ot...

Anyway, your trifles aside, we're trying to discuss and pass along correct information to others....since you've studied the subject please go ahead and teach us.

Not Chicago with all those wonderful life saving draconian gun laws!! ! ! ! 8-O The original gun laws were ignored by many. Disdain was created by the fact people that were "connected" had no trouble carrying a gun legally while the populace was supposed to do without. If you were white t...

If you want to talk about these things it's best to use the correct terms to avoid misunderstanding...just makes common sense, right? Well since you've mentioned correct terms, "good logic" and "bad logic" are not proper terms. I have formally studied logic and I'm not even sure...

Good old Chicago. When I was small we lived 2 "city blocks" (8 blocks to a mile) from Wrigley Field...everyone was a "Cubbie" fan. I also worked and lived throughout the area until '83. And spent a fair amount of time in the city proper, including the West and South sides. Things...

The answer to your question is that whoever told you that "logic", and "common sense" are the same thing was illogical, and very wrong, and in fact rather naive. "Common sense" is just that: "sense": the most common forms of instinct, and gut feeling. Intutio...

There is "good" logic and there is "bad" logic. You use common sense to determine which is which.
