12. This is turning into another round of infighting
among state Democrats in Illinois.

I do think the idea of using emergency funds is a poor one. The idea was conceived too quickly and without enough discussion. There are better ways to honor the memories of those students.

Durbin has come out against tearing down the building.

A privately funded memorial is a much better idea.
