    Interesting article. From what I've heard about the shape Illinois is in all of the details in the article just might be true. I think that it's pretty well know that a certain percentage of people that work for any government just don't care. If nobody corrects them then things just get worse. Even in the military we practiced the "move them somewhere else" mentality. It's a form of damage control where you move them to where they can do less damage & hope that they can retire soon.

    I wonder how long it will be before we're told we all have to chip in and keep Illinois running with no changes.

    Having been around the block myself, though not in government, it's the same song and dance everywhere, be it government or large corporate entities. This is the rot that pervades every entity, and is responsible for the eventual downfall of companies and countries alike.

    And yes, we will all be paying for the ill placed largess of these useless people. The time is coming when all will be collapsing around us. Are you ready?

    It's OK to say "Chop! Chop!" among root vegetables?
