Go and do what you can, even if it's only a couple bucks. It really can add up, and if we can't help friends of friends when they need it what's the point? What goes around comes around... or stops.
And meanwhile the Gov of Illinois is showing imperial tendencies, by basically rewriting laws as he sees fit. All while being a sanctimonious, nannying prick about it.
