We DO NOT Live in Illinois, we merely EXIST., trapped because a couple of our IDIOTIC Ancestors decided they wanted to "Birth" us here. Wish I wouldn't been born with a snowblower up my backside. By the way, don't worry about Cubs postseason tickets... Jesus already told them, "Don't do Nothing until I Return"!!!!!
