I agree with you about Y2K. My girlfriend works for a very large banking company and was part of their team that dealt with the problem. Everytime we hear Y2K skepticism on TV she says that the problem was seen many years in advance and taken care of. That’s not to say that all the bad stuff would or would not have happened, we never had the opportunity to find out.
As for this story, the last thing we need up here are more Chicago transplants. Especially right before the recall. We had a bunch of them come up here when Doyle loosened and expanded welfare.
Agreed. Though I may be a bit of a hypocrit in saying so. My family moved from Peoria, IL to WI when I was 10. So I’m a transplant, too! It was, IMHO, the BEST thing they did for us. Especially after seeing how some of my cousins who didn’t move to WI fared! :-)
