It is the little things.
I'd be happy with a projector that worked. When I am fired, the headline will read, "Veteran Teacher Pitches Computer Off Roof!"
In semi-related news, the fire folks trolled through looking for things to whine about: apparently, the cute little things I have hanging from the ceiling are a fire code, but attaching them to the wall is not.*blink*
I've often joked that if our windows opened, we would be short a copier or two. A girl can dream though...

And I suspect Toj is right about the sprinklers.

Is it snowing? They say it's snowing.
I'd love to see snow but gah----so cold.
It is snowing! I think it also will snow tomorrow, but it looks like it won't stick in the downtown areas. The northern suburbs and north of there likely will get some snow to stick.

If we get seven inches of snow, I doubt that there'll be more than an inch on the ground at the end of it.

Hee hee - the way the headline is phrased, it looks like it is a bill that will allow gay people to marry the governor.:D

Without in any way diminishing the importance of this bill, it is a deflection from the much much bigger problem of unfunded pensions and lack of budget constraints. Illinois has the worst credit rating in the US.

I am watching to see if they tackle that problem next

Yes, because gay marriage is MUCH more important than... I dunno... solving the 100 BILLION pension deficit problem?

It would help if we had a better, stronger governor.

In your dreams. Downstate won't win out over Chicago area. I will say it would be good to get rid of Madigan and I won't mind a Repub governor as long as he/she is not a right wing nutjob.

Unfunded pensions are gonna be a huge problem, down the line....For years in Law Enforcement, Firemen and other public servants had an incredible pension plan....actually too good to be true...Police could retire after 20 years with 50% pension, at their highest salary....without any employee deduction at all....INCREDIBLE....even got 2.5% for every additional work year....Pie in the Sky, eh?....Up until, these cities, municipalities and governments are now learning, that may be impossible to fund.....Your right, another path needs to be taken....

So Illinois passed same sex marriage. Whats that like 13 or 14 states now with Hawaii getting ready to do it too? Thats half the country...more than actually. More than 50% of the country supports this.

That's not so good. Chicago is facing the same problems as the state as a whole.

Oops my bad. I was thinking 26…IDK why. <shrug> Still 30% that's about &#8531;, so yeah, it's getting there.
