Do you know what happens when you live in New York and you type the words "why am" into Google? Before you can type the next word, Google's Autocomplete function helpfully offers to complete your thought. The first suggestion: "why am I so tired?" The second: "why am I always tired?" The Zeitgeist perfectly captured by Google. As the Belgian philosopher Pascal Chabot has put it, burnout is "civilization's disease." The thought of so many people hunched over their laptops or iPhones, asking Google, "Why am I so tired?" or "Why am I always tired?" is really sad. And the answer is not going to be given to us by an algorithm. But we can start by shutting off our devices and getting some sleep.

Martin Luther King,
There has to be something concrete that makes those of us living in the United States more than just co-residents who share little other than proximity. There has to be something that makes 300 million people into "we" and "us." That something is civic nationalism.
While the state economy appears to be on the mend, it's certainly a slow one and Illinoisans are running low on patience. Job growth during the coming months could have a telling impact in November.
Now in its ninth year, another Pitchfork Music Festival is now in the books and the unique Chicago fest has never been stronger.
On January 1, many new Illinois laws went into effect, including prohibiting cellphone use while driving and a speed limit increase on some Illinois highways. Since then, the spring session of the Illinois General Assembly brought another batch of new laws and other actions. Here are five.

Chicago Public Art,
Jaume Plensa, the Spanish sculptor, added another four sculptural "portraits" to Chicago's growing Public Art in the parks. Ten years ago, Plensa, born in 1955, created the globally famous "Crown Fountain" which has become a Chicago landmark and a public sculpture Icon.

Rand Paul Guns,
Safe Gun Storage,
No matter what nonsense Rand Paul and the NRA promote about how doctors are a threat to the 2nd Amendment, anyone who believes that an unlocked gun in a home with children isn't a health risk is presenting a degree of stupidity that no amount of medical care will ever cure.

Illinois, with its many historical sites and state parks, is the perfect state for road trips. It's also the perfect place for a very creepy road trip.
Politicians across the country who have embraced heavy restrictions on who can serve food where should look West and take notice of Los Angeles' dual brick-and-mortar and mobile restaurant landscape.
Harris v Quinn,
The nine justices of the SCOTUS are now in recess, leaving the rest of us the summer in which to reflect upon and digest their latest set of rulings. Because it is likely that both judgments will have long-term adverse consequences for progressive causes, a moment of reflection on that second judgment is well in order.
My friend Sean messaged me. "You know, she lives in the Carlyle Hotel, and once I called the Carlyle and asked to speak with Elaine Stritch, and they connected me. So what you need to do is call her, tell her how fabulous you are, and she'll give you tickets!" I declined, and for a good reason: I had actually met Elaine.
