Roosevelt Student and Singer Taylor Trentham: From Dollywood to Laramie
Every artist has a first gig. Taylor Trentham's was at Dollywood.
The 22-year-old opera singer recently played the titular role in Roosevelt University's production of Considering Matthew Shepard—a classical music tribute to the gay college student who was kidnapped and slain in Laramie, Wyoming in 1998. Trentham, a vocal performance major at Roosevelt University's Chicago College of Performing Arts ( CCPA ), described the experience as "an uncomfortable yet powerful journey." But years before he took on this historical figure, Trentham encountered another gay icon.

Professor David Faris on WTTW: What to Make of This Extraordinary Chicago Election
It’s been an unprecedented election with more mayoral candidates than ever before. But one thing seems certain: unless all the polls have been wrong, there will be no outright winner Tuesday.

So who is likely to make the April runoff? And has having so many candidates on the ballot fired up voters or simply turned them off?

David Faris expects a low turnout. He’s the program director of political science at Roosevelt University and author of the forthcoming book, “It’s Time to Fight Dirty: How Democrats Can Build a Lasting Majority in American Politics.”

What the Mueller memo says — and doesn't say
One thing has been very predictable about American politics over the last two years: When President Trump wakes up and misplaces his mind on Twitter like some street-corner LaRouchie, it's often because something very, very bad for him is about to be made public. So when Trump started in with his drunk-getting-ejected-from-a-bar routine on Twitter Friday morning, it was a surefire sign that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation was about to ruin the president's evening.
