Absolutely post an open thread two or three times a week. It gives me an opportunity to let you know that Baise’s mailer telling me that Oberweis is JB’s and Madigan’s best friend used one of your Crains’ articles as a footnote.
Sure. The open threads often go straight to sports, which isn’t my jam. But the threads seem to foster IL-centric conversation, and if they give you a bit of a breather to spend more time on developing another story, it seems good.

Yes, please keep the open threads as long as they remain civil. I am not a political junkie like a lot of folks on here. I come through to hopefully gets some perspective from all sides. Honestly, though, like most blogs, there are a handful of know it all posters who like to run over the others and dominate the discussion and it’s getting old. I just don’t understand why people find it necessary to be so condescending. Why are the comments like “try to keep up” necessary. Apologies for the rant. Thanks for the blog, Rich. You do great work.
