I think we need a new word in the English language - "absurd" doesn't adequately describe this spin. Nancy would love these numbers - she would say more people are painting or writing - not wasting their time working to buy food.

Pathetic Quinn's spin is absurd, hopefully his days are numbered. Now all we need is Nancy Pelosi making a visit to either Chicago or Springfield...

I'm a little wonderous here...in the example case of the two-year-old the new pathologists claimed death from one of two unrelated causes. I would assume they were saying BOTH of those things occurred and the blow to the abdomen caused the lacerated liver and that they just couldn't be sure which one caused death first.

Illinois strip club tax being considered

Illinois lawmakers could vote this spring to impose a “pole tax” — a tax on stripper poles, that is

From qctimes.com:

SPRINGFIELD — Illinois lawmakers could vote this spring to impose a “pole tax” — a tax on stripper poles, that is.

Under legislation pending in the Illinois Senate, operators of adult entertainment facilities would pay a $5 fee to the state for each person who enters their establishments, with the proceeds going to fund rape crisis centers and other sexual assault assistance organizations.

State Sen. Toi Hutchinson said it didn’t take long for a lobbyist representing strip club owners to contact her after she filed the proposal.

“I knew it was going to be provocative,” the Olympia Fields Democrat said.

Hutchinson said she has nothing against strip clubs and topless bars but thinks they should contribute to the cause of helping abused women.

“If you’re going to sell sex and alcohol, then bad things sometimes happen,” Hutchinson said. “I’m hopeful they’ll work with me to take some of the stink off their name.”
