    This article is extraordinarily unfair. I follow Center Square and other medial closely in Illinois and know Krug personally. Center Square's journalistic standards are rock solid, which is to say far better than most media. Krug has a solid, traditional press background and he operates with editorial independence.

Their selection of topics likewise focuses on matters important to taxpayers, which is no doubt why you don't like them, but that, too, is entirely appropriate. They have served an invaluable role in Illinois covering stories not covered elsewhere and they do so with exceptional accuracy.

    Although Dana Reeve never smoked, she was most likely exposed to second hand smoke. We can't ignore the consequences of this problem. So sad.
