I wish someone would explain to me how the state capital is in Springfield and why the governor lives in Chicago. I was under the impression that the govenor of a state should live in the same city that he governs from. I would say that it'
s a lot easier to rip people off if you're where all the fat cat thieves are. Would'nt it be nice if the President of this country could run the country from the French Riviera!!!!!
