    Literally!

    Yeah.. I heard Rick Perry's commercial on Chicago radio up here in northern Illinois the other day.

    I'm sure it will hit home for some business owners, however.  Illinois is a terrible state to do business in.  It is almost always ranked very near the bottom of states.  Last year we were ranked 48th while next door, Indiana was ranked 5th.

    And, while unemployment is easing somewhat in the state, our bond rankings are in the toilet and uncertainty about business taxes and an unsolved public pension crisis don't help either.  The Dems downstate refuse to deal with it.. it's a real mess.
