"Illinois - Mile After Magnificent Mile"....
That's what the official
What it should say is "Illinois - Mile After Mile of Dodging Potholes the Size of Texas and Avoiding Grotesque, Rotting Animal Carcasses".
Yeaaaaaa. Mile After Magnificent Mile, my ass.
Seems as though the Illinois Department of Transportation has blown it's wad on snow removal/salt applications this past winter...and now there's no money to do any kinda road fixin up or roadkill pickup.
It's gonna get mighty bumpy...and mighty stinky...in Illinois this summer.
I can't even imagine what it'll be like when fall gets here and the deer start goin crazy. Even this time of year, I still usually see at least one dead deer a week on my way to work. There's one now (on 29) that's been there a good two weeks.
Thank gawd the weather's been cool.
