NO OFFENSE TO ANYONE...I think of my dad always saying "FIBS."  I live 10 mins from the IL border.  I also think of a bunch of friends  that live in IL.

People will probably think im racist because of this... but im NOT... just stating facts... but..


Chicago shut down there public housing authority thing.. i think its also called the projects? Anyways, they literally have a billboard in Chicago that states the name of the town im in saying "They have free housing!" 

This happened a couple years ago... and our school system has gone down, crime rate has gone UP, and our town is going downhill FAST.... 

And its not just black people... its whites, mexicans, black, ect... 


It sucks : (   This town was a nice town when I was growing up... and now I dont even want my kids to grow up here anymore...

I think Chicago. Big city, baseball, too crowded. I think of the movie "While You Were Sleeping".

Umm.. that's about it. I've never been to IL
