For many years Illinois Times has welcomed summer with the "summerlong" Summerguide, including a big calendar of events so you can plan your leisure, because summer is a terrible thing to waste. Last year our SG was a shutdown shadow of its usual self, but here we are back, 68 pages with ads aplenty, ready to rock and roll. Not only fun is opening up, but news too is often about possibilities: See page 7 for "The Next Ten" visioning plan. The hopefulness of summer always opens on Memorial Day weekend, when we remember with gratitude all those who have died, especially those who have died having served in war, and in the cause of peace. –Fletcher Farrar, editor and CEO
