In reporting the 57-53 defeat of the bill to force every Illinois citizen to pay $30 to subsidize the CTA/RTA last Thursday, the Chicago Tribune had this sentence:
”Senate President Emil Jones earlier called the construction and gambling package the ‘big elephant that’s in the room.’’
Armed with my long lens, I was besieged with instructions from my family to take a picture of this or that animal on our “safari.”
I didn’t get this elephant’s dump in motion. It is in the “splat” stage.
And its stinky mess is what I think a greatly expanded gambling will smell like in Illinois.
