— REPUBLICAN LAWMAKERS SAY THEY’RE SKIPPING TOWN HALLS FOR ‘SAFETY REASONS’ – Stacey Baca
http://abc7chicago.com/politics/gop-lawmakers-say-theyre-skipping-town-halls-for-safety-reasons/1783734/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Some Republican congressmen are facing angry voters in their districts, concerned with the repeal of the Affordable Care Act and other issues with the new president’s agenda. They say security concerns are why they’re canceling town halls. Congressman Randy Hultgren announced Friday afternoon that one of his staff members quit this week because she was worried about her safety at the office. The police chief in Campton Hills confirmed they have handled a few minor calls. There has been no violence at any of the town hall meetings held across the country, but the congressman says safety is the reason he won’t hold town hall meetings. Republicans have faced protests at home, including Hultgren. He has decided for now to meet with constituents only in small groups, not town halls. “They get frustrated having individual time with me, or a small group meeting with me. They want to have something that is more theatrical. I just don’t know if that is beneficial right now,” he said. Hultgren represents part of McHenry, Kane and Kendall counties. “We just want to make sure that everybody is safe, that we have this respect in the process that we can listen from each other, learn from each other, disagree at times but with a level of respect,” he said. Although Hultgren used former congresswoman Gabby Giffords’ shooting as an example, Giffords recently released her own response, saying politicians must face their constituents and hold town hall meetings. Congressman Peter Roskam, who represents the far northwest and western suburbs, has also had protests in his districts. Instead of town halls, he’s using phone meetings. “Rather than having a meeting with 200 people that are essentially shouting at one another, I thought it was more helpful to meet with 18,000 people on the phone to have a wider range of opinion and much more feedback,” he said. The protests, for some, harken back to the early days of the Tea Party. Senator Dick Durbin, who met with Tea Partiers at the time, sold an old boxing quote to put it in perspective. “They used to say something about Joe Lewis, the great heavyweight champion, they used to say something about his opponents: they can run but they can’t hide. The same is true about members of Congress. You can avoid your constituents for some period of time, but ultimately they get the last word in the election,” Durbin said. Voters have criticized Republican lawmakers for shirking their duty to their constituents and continue to push for town hall meetings. Experts said things will only get worse for lawmakers because soon they will start voting on laws, and voters will follow how their representatives are voting.)
— CHARLES THOMAS RETIRES: CELEBRATING MORE THAN 25 YEARS AT ABC7  (DIERSEN: I wish that I could celebrate my almost 18 years at GAO, but my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, did not promote me beyond GS-13, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take an $18,847 pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.  I wish that I could celebrate my almost 9 years at IRS, but my Democrat IRS superiors did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims.  I wish that I could celebrate my almost 3 years at the Post Office, but my Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Chicago rap impresario Chance the Rapper’s summit with Gov. Bruce Rauner apparently did not go well. The West Chatham native and three-time Grammy winner left the Thompson Center saying he felt “flustered” Friday, after a 30-minute conversation with the governor that centered on funding for the Chicago Public Schools. In brief remarks to reporters as he walked to the elevators with a small entourage, the rapper said he was disappointed by “vague answers” from the governor about funding for CPS, but had exchanged phone numbers with Rauner.)

— Age bias in the Age of the Millennial – Editorial  (DIERSEN: My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes PROMOTE AGE DISCRIMINATION BIG TIME.)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opinion/editorials/ct-age-bias-edit-plummer-terkel-scully-0304-jm-20170303-story.html
(FROM THE EDITORIAL: Yes, this is often said to be the Age of the Millennial. And virtually every discussion of generations quickly references baby boomers. But assigning stereotypes to different age groups isn’t just annoying. It’s often misleading. Case in point: America’s concept of retirement has changed. Many people are working well into their 70s and 80s. Insert here your own story about the 83-year-old co-worker who never got sick and was always the first to arrive each day. And workers with that depth of life and work experience bring to the table a wealth of institutional and subject knowledge about their fields. That’s a wellspring that millennials can tap into, and employers should covet. Too often, they don’t. Ageism — that is, discrimination based on someone’s age — is rampant in today’s workplace. According to a study by AARP in 2013, 3 of every 5 older workers reported having seen or experienced age discrimination at work. Age discrimination complaints brought to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission have jumped 26 percent over the last decade, from 16,548 in 2006 to 20,857 last year. Madigan is right to take up this issue, and we hope the job search firms that have been warned make the right fixes. A spokeswoman for CareerBuilder told the Tribune’s Alexia Elejalde-Ruiz that the company “is committed to helping workers of all ages find job opportunities, and is fixing this unfortunate oversight.” That’s good to hear. After all, what difference does it make if someone’s 23, 43, 63 or 83 — as long as he or she can get the job done well. Mark Twain put it best: “Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.”)
