Not really directed at you....probably should have made it a separate post. I'll take an explanation of the aggregate or the budget mismatch from anyone :-)

I only need to do one thing to get ready for 8 more years of Clintons. Buy a new oven - I am no longer nimble enough to get my head in the one I have now. But I agree that I don't want Christy on the ticket either.

Good to hear. Talk about a waste of space, Mann needed to go. Maybe a couple others on that list will be voted off.
qfingers - JWCC proposes levy increase - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
This is a 3.46% increase in the levy. Given they had a $600,000 decrease in the budget...and a 6.8% increase in tuition and fees...and a 4% projected decrease in hours (the increase in tuition should make up for this plus paying instructors less)....I don't quite see how the levy increases...can't seem to find the JWCC budget

Federal judge: Illinois politicians aren't getting message

10 months, 1 week ago from Associated Press

A federal judge who sentenced a former Chicago alderman to 10 1/2 years in prison says some Illinois politicians aren't getting the message that corrupt behavior carries a heavy price

  • CHICAGO — A federal judge who sentenced a former Chicago alderman to 10 1/2 years in prison says some Illinois politicians aren't getting the message that corrupt behavior carries a heavy price.
    He made the comment Friday while sentencing 60-year-old Ambrosio Medrano for scheming to accept bribes and kickbacks to sell bandages to hospitals.
    Medrano must report to prison by March 21. One prison where the defense says they'd like Medrano to go is the Colorado facility where former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich is serving a 14-year sentence for corruption.
    Judge Gary Feinerman told Friday's hearing the "cost-benefit calculation" of politicians "is skewed" and too many conclude that the benefits outweigh the potential costs.
    He says he hopes Medrano's sentence will help "realign that cost-benefit calculation."
