    Yesterday (4/11/14) was an interesting day for Illinois. The two gubernatorial candidates, Pat Quinn and Bruce Rauner, had their first public face-off in front of the Illinois Education Association annual business meeting. It was basically a Q &A with the candidates with opening & closing remarks. Good quotes:

    Quinn: "Don't compare me to the Almighty, compare me to the alternate."

    Moderator asked Bruce Rauner who the "Union bosses" are he referenced. Answer: "One's you."

    Illinois needs a shake up, but the Governor will be powerless to do so. The machine is in place.

    Maybe not totally powerless, but I pretty much agree. There's so much $%^& in the state legislature, little can be done.SO many of the legislators are more concerned about getting reelected than doing anything that might p*** off their constituents.

    Frankly, that seems to be pervasive: federal, state, municipal, even HOAs.
