What can I say? It's kind of funny when (according to the article) the Illinois chief fiscal officer said Monday he is willing to dial up the bond houses and finance companies to alert them that lending the state more money, as Gov. Pat Quinn has proposed, would be a "major risk."

No doubt this will turn into another Republican / Democrat as the treasurer is Republican and Quinn is a Democrat. However, before cheering the action or screaming that more money is needed to pay off creditors (something that has been the case for at least the last year and a half) I suggest that you take the time to at least crack a smile at the stupidity of the whole situation... I outright laughed.
