Rockford Register Star: Executive Editor’s View: Time for a summit on civility

Each of them represents a portion of the Rockford region in the U.S. House.  We approached the two members of Congress a few months ago with plans for the summit and an invitation to participate.

Since the ceasefire in Syria agreed to by President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin in the summer, news reports on the Syria conflict have become blips on the radar and scarcely reported.

The Hill: Kinzinger offended by kneeling, wants NFL to ban it

Rep. Adam Kinzinger “would love” for the NFL to bar players from kneeling in protest during the national anthem. “I’m very offended by people that take a knee when the national anthem is played,” the Illinois Republican said in an interview with The Hill. “I would love to see the NFL put in a rule that says don’t kneel for the national anthem. ... The national anthem isn’t about righting wrongs — the country has wrongs and we should always try to right them. The national anthem, in my mind, is just simply about accepting and respecting the sacrifices so many people have put into making this a great country,” the lawmaker, a current captain in the Air National Guard, says.
