— Gov. J.B. Pritzker should establish an Office of GSGBO (Get Stoned or Get the Bleep Out) to make a few bucks off those fleeing the state – John Kass (DIERSEN: DISGUSTING, TRAGIC: Because Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, RINOs, and other anti-Republicans ever-increasingly promote pot and promote gambling in Illinois, ever-increasingly, more and more and more of those in your neighborhood, in your precinct, in your municipality, in your township/ward, in your county, and in Illinois will harm themselves with pot and harm themselves with gambling. Ever-increasingly, that will harm you and harm everyone around you.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Our politicians are doing what they can, trying to stupify us with pot smoking and sports betting, and they’ll probably legalize prostitution next, so the rest of the state will be like Springfield, but here’s the question: How can Illinois take advantage of the Illinois Exodus and monetize outmigration from Madiganistan?)

— Recent surveys agree that more than one-third of all college students suffer at times from bouts of food insecurity. The rate is far higher for students with an extra risk factor: belonging to a racial minority, having a single parent or being the first in their family to attend college, for example. . .A recent study by the Government Accountability Office says only 29% of those now in college are “traditional students,” who enroll right out of high school and depend on their parents for support. The rest, especially in community colleges, can be older, and financially fragile — often with children of their own. – Cokie Roberts and Steven V. Roberts
