Just make it last


Same clouds as before from a different place.

* They're getting rid of the things that make us better people:

Illinois’s economy is so bad that virtually nothing is sacred: even historic sites connected to Abraham Lincoln could face significant cuts in the coming state budget.
State preservation officials warn that expected deep reductions, coming after decreases of 15 percent and 16 percent in the past two years, threaten the closing of some locations and reducing of staff and hours at others.
David Blanchette, the spokesman for the state Historic Preservation Agency, said there were no guarantees that even the most prominent Lincoln attractions would be spared, including the acclaimed Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield. “Like every state agency, we’re staring down the barrel of a loaded gun, and wondering what will happen when the trigger is pulled,” he said.

* Today's best of set: Harlem Shuffle by the originals, Bob and Earl. Anyone can sing along. And should.
