I-64 across the southern part is just WTF.  You have St Louis,  :Carl:, Mt Vernon,  :Carl:, and then Evansville Indiana.  That's it.  Everything else is 10 miles off the exit.  And folks think I-70 is bad from Salina to Limon.  At least you can reasonably pick which side of 80mph :driving: you're most comfortable with.  I think Illinois finally raised I-64 to 70mph. Not too long ago was still 65 :impatient:

East St. Louis makes St. Louis look wonderful.

Chicago's river is even green today!  Polluted mess even in their coolest city.

If you go to a dispensary in Illinois it feels likes the check-in process at a Federal SuperMax

I have no frame of reference for either of these situations

It's not bad really (dispensary --can't say fit supermax).  Just show ID and pick up your stuff you ordered online).

Property taxes are crazy high.  If I was a multi millionaire, my money would definitely go a lot further in Manhattan Kansas.
