Suburban Life Sound Off: April 9-15

Against sanctuary cities

Even though a vast majority of the people in the United States of America are against sanctuary cities, we still have suburbs like Oak Park and Berwyn that are still disrespecting citizens' viewpoint on this. I don't understand if somebody is undocumented – they don't have a Social Security number – how do they obtain a job and become a valid person in this country, without draining us of more of our own assets?

Don't forget the elderly

I enjoyed your article regarding children with disabilities, that the [Brookfield Zoo] is providing special services. I'm a baby boomer. My dad fought in World War II. I have his dog tags around my neck. That's how our country became this way, and we have a future here. One thing I would like to say is let's not forget the elderly and the handicapped. They also need special services at the zoo and every other public place.

Unfair advantage for Fox?

Recently, Ralph Peters, a retired Army officer, and 10-year Fox News strategic analyst, declined to renew his contract at Fox because of "the network's propagandizing for the [President Donald] Trump administration." This very conservative analyst wrote: "Today's Fox prime time lineup preaches paranoia, attacking processes and institutions vital to our republic and challenging the rule of law." "Fox's assault on our intelligence community ignored how the system actually works, how stringent the safeguards are, and that intelligence personnel are responsible public servants, even heroes." He adds that "For our society's health, no one, not even the President can be above criticism or the law." My question is: Why is Fox News part of the basic cable package like NBC, CBS, ABC, PBS, while we have to pay extra to get MSNBC, CNN, CNBC, etc.? Rather unfair advantage for Mr. [Rupert] Murdoch's cable news. I'd say.
