Don't you mean is there an Illinois outside of Chicago? they need to rename the state, to "Chicago", or separate it into two states, North Illinois (Chicago) and South Illinois (the rest of a state that could be great).

Chicago loves downstate because they keep shipping us the rats they evict when they tear down projects to build high dollar high rises.

Face it, the rest of the state is the trash can for Chicago.

If you really want to see the "Charm" of Southern Illinois, you should visit MoonShine.
It is a real blast from the past. Check out their website before you start out. And do not trust the GPS or any directions. Get close and "ask a local" where it is. Motorcycle clubs use it for a meeting point, Jeep clubs, etc... The last time I went, the wife and I got there "early" and there were about 300 people behind us when we got our meal. I LOVE the place, but only go there a couple times a year. The "Adventure" is getting there. The meal is normal fare, but the atmosphere takes me back to the 50's......

taxes, and more taxes

This state is the most expensive, screwed-up state I've lived in. How could schools be so under funded and defunct when real estate taxes are so DAMN much?
