One study says that Illinois could be the second most affected state by the sequester.

The federal budget cuts may happen at midnight, but state agencies don’t know exactly how or when they’ll feel them.

Illinois public schools could lose $36-million for low income students, and another $24-million for special education.

Civilian military employees in the state can lose $83-million in pay.

And O’Hare airport can see delays of 90 minutes if a control tower and a runway have to be closed.

      Forget the mop. I'm gonna rob people and deal drugs. That's way easier than working with a f#cking mop for minimum wage!

      That's what jeff did. He got a mop and now he makes a good living mopping things. Good enough to have internet access and a computer to write stuff with. I am so proud of him.
