And we want to thank Illinois Treasurer Michael Frerichs for coming on the show this morning. He may well be the only Illinois politician that’s actually trying to put money in your pocket! To that end, be sure to visit the Treasurer’s website (http://www.treasurer.il.gov/), click on the ICash link at the upper right, and start searching for lost family cash.
You may not find the 84 grand that I did, but one friend found $400 while another discovered $4,000. Be sure to enter the various iterations of the family names involved when you search. For example, “Jeff Ward” and “Jeffrey Ward.”
Then Derek and I discussed how ridiculously difficult it is to buy women clothes and immediately extended our vast sympathy to females everywhere. We want to thank Therese for calling and putting the exclamation mark on that sad sentiment.
But wait, there’s more. Derek also provided a firsthand account of the smashing success that was Elgin’s Nightmare on Chicago Street. Kudos to the City for pulling off another great event!
Thursday! The Smiling Conservative will be back to discuss:
- A group of loons who tried to have the entire U46 School Board arrested
- Why two former Illinois Republican governors agree with Jeff Ward
- How Fox River and Countryside head honcho Jim Gaffney just resigned because, as I predicted in a four year old column, he could not keep his financial promises.
