    "South of Rockford" is not Chicago, nor is it particularly close to Chicago. You might as well call Hartford part of New York.

    I'm perfectly aware of where Rockford is, thank you very much. Also perfectly aware of which way the prevailing winds blow.

    Ah, I see.

    Us Downstate Illinoisers get a little sensitive about that kind of stuff.

    Wind is blowing from the south today, so Wisconsin gets the fallout.

    "Exelon Nuclear officials believe a failed piece..."

    Why do I keep seeing "Exon" when I read that?
