— Did Gaza protest vote make a mark on Illinois primary, impact support for Biden? It’s hard to gauge the success of an effort during the primary to protest President Joe Biden’s handling of the war in Gaza, but he appears to have gotten less support from Cook County voters than any incumbent Democratic presidential candidate since Jimmy Carter 44 years ago. – Nader Issa
— It’s up to the city — not reporters — to take the lead in recouping Chicago’s unpaid bills. Calls from Sun-Times reporters Tim Novak and Mitchell Armentrout led to businesses paying $1 million they owed for traffic control services. That’s proof that the city could, if it’s willing, quickly coordinate a plan to ensure that unpaid bills are taken care of quickly. – Editorial

— Retired grandmother still owes $108,000 in student debt 40 years after taking out loan. – Mike Lowe (COMMENT: Did you take out a student loan? I did not even try because I would not have gotten one. I only just barely made it into the upper 20% of my high school class and my ACT score was only 24. Further, I was not viewed as being college material. Neither of my parents had attended college. My father was only the first of my ancestors to earn a high school diploma. My mother never attended high school. I could not run because I had a bone disease. My eyesight could not be corrected to 20/20. I had partial red/green color blindness. I demonstrated no leadership potential because I was a part-time dishwasher during my junior and senior years in high school and a full-time dishwasher during the summer in between. So because of the aforesaid and because my parents lacked money, I worked my way through college. But because I worked too many hours, my GPA suffered. I would not have been able to graduate debt-free from NIU with a bachelor’s degree in management in 1970 if I had not worked all the part-time hours that I could for the Park Forest Post Office 1966-1969 and if my parents had not provided me with room and board while I completed courses at UIC 1966-1968, weekends during my first semester at NIU in 1969, and the summer of 1969. I acknowledge that I would not have had to work so many hours washing dishes and delivering mail if I had not used what I earned to buy a new cars in 1966, 1967, and 1968, but I used those cars to get to/from work and classes.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In 1986, Nancy Peter took out a student loan to finish her psychology degree at Mundelein College in Chicago. Almost four decades later, she’s still paying it back. “The interest compounds and compounds, so every penny I don’t pay, it goes sky high,” she said. Peter took out another loan to go to graduate school at Loyola University and has worked as a therapist for nearly 40 years. But the now 71-year-old retired grandmother of two owes six-figures, more than triple the initial amount of money she borrowed. . .According to the U.S. Department of Education, 43 million Americans owe a collective $1.3 trillion in student loan debt. The average borrower owes $37,000. “This will sound terrible,” Peter said. “But I have a paper of different ways you can have your loan forgiven, and the only one I fit into was I would have to die.” Last year, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the Biden administration’s plan to forgive hundreds of billions of dollars in student loan debt.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: One of Joe Biden’s notable digressions when getting deposed by special counsel Robert Hur was about driving his beloved 1967 Corvette Stingray convertible. Which wasn’t surprising — the president genuinely loves his car. And why not? It’s a thing of beauty and, for its time, was a splendid feat of engineering. A paradox of the Biden administration is that the old-school car enthusiast is — in the name of the future and saving the planet — waging a war on the internal-combustion-engine cars that he so admires and that have helped define American life over the last 100 years. The internal-combustion-engine automobile ranks as one of the modern world’s most transformative innovations. Prior to the advent of trains, travel by land was an absolute misery, even for the wealthy and privileged. Then the car, in effect, took the train and put it in the hands of individuals. It was a revolutionary leap ahead for personal freedom and mobility. It changed where we live (catalyzing the growth of the suburbs) and how we work (making it easier to commute). It obviously made it possible to go more places and gave rise to new types of business catering to a newly footloose population, including motels and fast-food restaurants. It knit the country together via a road network that facilitated untold economic activity and created the auto-manufacturing industry, as well as industries providing parts and fuel for cars. To an unusual extent, people feel bonded to their cars. There are car enthusiasts but not enthusiasts for other 20th-century implements that changed our way of life. No one speaks wistfully of the refrigerator they owned 40 years ago or reads fan magazines devoted to plumbing. Even for consumers who aren’t car devotees, what to buy is an intensely personal decision; this is why there is a dizzying array of brands offering an immense range of choices. The Biden administration’s push to get people into electric vehicles is running directly into the chief advantage of internal-combustion-engine cars, which is the sheer convenience. People don’t really have “range anxiety,” the fear their electric vehicle will run out of its charge. Electric cars have acquired more range now, and most people aren’t driving 300 miles in a single trip, regardless. No, it’s the time it takes to charge an electric car compared with the ease of a trip to the gas station that is the issue. Gas stations already exist (about 145,000 of them with a million gas pumps), and no one had to subsidize their creation. They are convenient and cost-effective and make economic sense. Making charging stations available on a comparable scale will present formidable obstacles. As Mark Mills of the National Center for Energy Analytics points out in a paper on electric cars, transporting the large amounts of energy at the necessary scale using electric energy via wires and transformers is much more expensive than doing it with oil via pipelines and tanks. Installing the superchargers necessary to make charging somewhat rapid — but still slower than gassing up — will require “a grid power demand comparable to a small town or steel mill.” This isn’t to say electric cars aren’t attractive to some consumers, especially those with their own garages for overnight charging and the resources to spend on a fun, interesting second or third car. Tesla has made major inroads in the upscale category. Good for it. More choice is better. An all-electric-car future is very far off, though, and internal-combustion-engine automobiles aren’t embarrassing artifacts of the past. Their cost, convenience, reliability, and size — more than half of automobiles sold in America are SUVs — make them hugely appealing. They are also getting constant upgrades. According to Mills, since 1975, “the average automobile today has 100 more horsepower, weighs 1,000 pounds more, and has doubled in fuel efficiency.” Joe Biden’s Corvette is now an antique, but the basic technology is as important, and incredibly user-friendly, as ever.)

I should write a book about the tremendous opposition that I faced from my Democrat GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates when I transferred from IRS to GAO in 1980 when I was 31 years old. They forced me to suffer a $22,966/year (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer. I faced tremendous opposition mainly because I was a conservative Republican who opposed political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination, but also because I did not help GAO meet any of its Affirmative Action quotas and because I did not start my career with GAO like almost all of them did and because I transferred in with almost 12 years of federal seniority. They were furious when I completed the requirements for a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, I passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, and I became a licensed CPA in 1981. I had passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979 and I had earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976. GAO audits IRS. I had worked for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels, currently $97,079-$110,020/year. They wasted my knowledge of IRS. They did not assign me to audits of IRS for 6 years. But then, after just 3 years, they threw me off audits of IRS.)
