Some random thoughts on this one:
In this country, Now, Today, the fact that the decision--no matter what little stir is created in Illinois courts--is going to be made on the federal level, then, it's really a matter of looking at the calendar: If this federal decision is to be made for certain, by the first Tues. in Nov., then Central Illinois lawmakers are Wasting Money (AGAIN--HELLO!!); If the decision is to be made between the first Tues. in Nov. and the last half of Jan., 2013, flip a coin; If the decision is made after that, then all the tens of thousands in the world won't move the toxic mountain, because a GOP victor will tell them to go to Hell and the Dem works for Richie Daley. Nuf Ced.
Other than that,$13,000.00 sounds like very little, in a city the size of Bloomington--as opposed to Normal, where I guarantee they anted more covered by fewer people. As Multiplication Rock always told ya, "It makes a *big* difference, how you spread it around."
And, as I said when Champaign came on board on this, "They've never drunk a glass of water in Clinton, have they?" Fact is, despite the annual water reports (which most people throw away and they wind up in the landfill, HELLO!!), Central Illinois water ain't what it used to be. More and more, I'm uncertain who the Hell drinks water out of the tap?...so, this isn't a "it will get IN me" thing, so much as a "it will get ON me" thing...which, is an aesthetic issue, a hygiene issue. Rather like that other, gamy, hidden argument favoring condom use.
Last but not least, understand, this is PEORIA wanting its way. There was a time, in the long, long ago, when Peoria always Got its way and damn all the farmers. I loved those days and times. When Peoria Ruled Downstate. But those days are gone, Morgan Freeman, and this old hippie commune is all that's left. My guess is, Peoria loses out. And the funny thing is, if you look at Central Illinois prejudices with clear eyes, it wouldn't take much money to defeat them.
Certainly not $13 grand per burgh. HELLO!!
