Once you get out of Crook county, the rest of IL, with the exception of the cities, is pretty red. I am stuck in Crook county. I am attempting to extract myself. I just made an offer on 23acres in IN.

Yes, my son in Chicago, and he doesn't graduate until May. However, he wants nothing to do with Illinois after he's done.

What's his major?

My son is now making his living as a recently minted ME. (Texas Tech)

My son is finishing nuclear radiology technology.. He will essentially administer PET scans...which is the nuclear version of CAT scans. Good for your son, and Texas Tech is a good school.

Congrats on both your son's. My son graduates in May, also. He has earned an MBA, JD. Already working for a company in Minneapolis.

The Left routinely ascribes absolute moral authority to grieving victims in furtherance of their political agenda.  Their agitprop is often manipulative and exploitive, but it works.  Appeals to facts and reason aren't enough anymore; persuading the public increasingly requires emotional appeals.  Even if they find it inherently unpalatable, conservatives must promote people whose personal stories offer counter-narratives to liberals' tragic parade of victimhood.  Katie
