First a nod to the folks at Illinois Reason, yes that's right Illinois Reason. and this coming from the #17 most influential political blog in the state btw. Why because they save me from the need I sometimes feel to respond to stuff on IllinoisReview.
Secondly, I got a letter via snail-mail about a property deal involving Kane County. More than anything else I was kind of curious why I got it, because I am a Republican with an address listed on the county GOP website? Due to the blog?
Thirdly, I am starting to think I should start a new blog, sort of an IllinoisReview type thing that is more focused on fiscal issues and less on social issues.
Finally, I think a candidate from west of Rt 47 in the 14th congressional district (perhaps DeKalb) might have a bit of advantage.
