Black Panther head judge: It’s Election Day. We voted at the Highland Avenue polling place (in Elgin). We had a head judge who was a Black Panther wearing his vest with all of his buttons and medals. Did anyone else in Elgin have a Black Panther as head judge? Supposedly, the circuit court is the one who hired these people. Where does it say that they get to walk back and forth in front of tables wearing their Black Panther regalia when people are coming in to register? This needs to be looked into.

Tragedy at the zoo: My heart goes out to the mother who lost her 2-year-old due to the fall at the zoo in Philadelphia. What in the world was she thinking when she put her 2-year-old on a railing above a pit of dogs?
