I'm all for it. Cook countians and the govmt officials do not seem to have a clue. Better yet, do not seem to give a hoot about the southern part of Illinois. Citizens downstate from Chicago should not under estimate the importance of their tax base. I'm sure that cook county would have voted you off the island years ago if you were such a liability.
