I watched this you-tube vid “Is tourism hurting Venice?”. I couldn’t believe it. Venice is built on wood piles and even those marble cathedrals are sitting on a lot of telephone poles. The city is in a mess much like L.A. or Chicago. Some ideas have been discussed about how to save the city with modern levees but the city is broke and can’t afford something like that. When cities run out of money it’s a super-bad situation.

Great opinion piece. Will someone on his staff print this article out and put it on his desk? Will our Gov actually read it? Naahh…

Yeah, I doubt JB understands much beyond what he’s told. Ever since I saw his first ad (2 years ago), I’ve gotten a strong puppet vibe from Jabba. I suspect his strings are being pulled from NYC by a certain Hungarian expat.

JB has the support of union workers, assorted Illinois patronage employees, welfare recipients and most of all, those too lazy to go out and vote against him.

I’m glad JB won. Now they can’t blame Rauner for what’s coming…although I expect some will try anyway.
