Message of the Day – A Black Hole

As we were walking over to see my son’s favorite Springfield museum, the State Museum, I saw this black hole.

It’s the entrance to underground parking for state employees located southwest of the State Capitol.

With Governor Pat Quinn threatening every taxeating interest group he can find, it certainly seems symbolic of where our money will be going if the General Assembly follows former Governor Jim Thompson’s advice and hikes income taxes. Thompson hiked taxes from 2½ percentage points to 3%, a 20% increase.

Quinn wants a 50% income tax hike.

My son went to the museum both Friday and Sunday.

It was still free.

That’s why it’s my favorite museum.
