In response to Ben's post about Abe, I would like everyone to know that Reagan's home state is ILL as well. In some areas in northern Illinois one can find various images of Reagan at every turn of every road. They find no use for honest Abe.

I think it's funny that I-88 is now the Reagan Memorial Tollway. It must be an homage to his days as a Democrat.

Are you saying that the road called "I-88" has some relation to "his days as a democrat?"

Yes--Democrats love taxes and tolls, and pretty much anything that takes your hard earned money from your pocket. At least, that's what Reagan would always have us believe. The IL state legislature, currently held by the Dems, knew they had to honor Dutch when he kicked, so they played the irony card by slapping his name on the tollway.

And where are they gay bars named after Reagan? "The Big Gipper" is just sitting on the shelf...
