Are you kidding Harry, we're stuck with what's at the bottom of the barrel!

Yes, we are. It doesn't get much worse than Illinois politics.

Kinda makes me wonder why I haven't moved far away from here by now... :unsure:

I'm from Palos Hills. I had always wondered about the Lake Michigan club, can you give me any details?


Meets in Bensenville Illinois on the 3rd Saturday of the month. Meeting opens at around 7:00 PM and business starts at 8:00 PM. Tomorrow is annual open house.

It's at

Faith Community Church Hall at 192 South Center Street in Bensenville, IL. Which is a block west of York Road and about three blocks south of Irving Park Road.

We have people from over the area. Some from as far south as Franfort Illinois and even a member from Crown Point Indiana area.

I just got back from it. There have already been several reports posted here, so no need for me to rehash what's already been said.

Oh yeah. I have no desire to move to a state (California) that's in even worse financial shape than Illinois is.

I'm thinking northern New Mexico... maybe even Wyoming, Idaho... something like that. No big city, I've had enough "big city" to last me a lifetime. A small town without all of the crime, corruption and traffic that we have here. Taos comes to mind. Something like that.
