Illinois Readers: Alert!

This is seriously bad news.

I use several of these parks on a fairly regular basis. I plan to call my legislators tomorrow. You should too. Or write a letter. Or both.

If you live in Urbana, here's the contact info.

If you live somewhere else:

Here's the Governor's Office. They suck in comparison. They try to get you off the phone as quickly as possible.

I heard this on the news earlier and was disgusted with how banal they made the story seem. I even thought I heard wrong what they were saying. As if no one cares about the severity with and implications of closing these parks. Thanks for the straight forward info on who to contact. Makes my letter of complaint and passing the info on to others much easier.
