    I do not pay any attention to Illinois, even when I am forced to drive through Illinois.

    It is AFAIK original to me. Compromise is failure on the installment plan, particularly when dealing with so intractable an opponent as ignorance. - Nightmare

    I have an acquaintance that is a photogrametric pilot. He has a hot twin turbo T-tail with a nose stuffed full of cameras. Some years ago he had a job to photograph the Quadrangle in front of the White House, and part of the job was to fly with SS minders that were not pilots. He asked the minders what they were going to do if he diverted from his massively vetted flight plan, shoot him? He also told stories of being 'escorted' onto the ground by F-16's. H/T Bill G.

    437 is a low number for Chi-Town. It used to hover in the 600s.

    Since crime is down all over in the country, with last year being one of the lowest crime years on record, it's pathetic to credit Chicago's finest or the puppet in office with anything.

    "Some time ago, a bunch of lefties defied the law by dancing at the Jefferson Memorial, resulting in their arrests. Last week, a bunch of them pulled the same stunt and - using patented Lefist techniques - provoked the Park Police into having to use force to arrest them."

    24hrs of no murder? Seems like bragging that you came in second to last in a NASCAR race to me. Congratz, you still can't drive with a damn.
