President Obama’s budget proposal, released last week, will touch off Washington-centric squabbles over proper levels of federal spending and taxing. Snooze-inducing terms like “continuing resolutions,” “discretionary spending,” and “entitlement spending” will dominate political debates all the way through the presidential caucus/primary season to the 2012 election.
Anti-war protesters gathered on the SMU campus Monday, calling for former President George W. Bush to be arrested for war crimes. The rally was designed to coincide with festivities surrounding this week's groundbreaking for the former president's library being built on campus.
More than 200 pairs of boots belonging to Illinois soldiers killed in Afghanistan and Iraq will be onstage as part of Harper College’s fall production of “Bury the Dead,” a play offering perspectives from major U.S. military conflicts dating to World War I.
The production, which opens a day after Veterans Day on Friday, Nov. 12 tells the story of six dead soldiers who rise from the grave, asking to rejoin the living.
