Quick Hits – A Will County update

Journalism, especially these days, is a always a long-term consideration. If you expect your columns to have an immediate effect, not only will you be sorely disappointed, but your mental health will inevitably suffer.

So, it’s certainly rare, but every now and then a column does have the immediate desired effect as did yesterday’s piece on Will County considering the prospect of suing inmates to recoup the cost of their jail stay.

Will County

A number of Will County Board members reached out to say they weren’t aware of the initiative and it was such a bad idea that they had it removed from the board agenda. That means it won’t even come up for a vote.

So, I’m pleased to say that common sense still reigns in Will County.

The moral of this story is, don’t ever believe that your opinion doesn’t count and that you can’t change the world.
