    Agreed. I'd even put the Pantagraph behind the News-Gazette.

    All I can think of is pentagram.

    It's not similar, is it? :D

    Maybe not ... but I'd like to see more.

    After working at a place where smoking at your desk was permitted, any place that discourages the practice is good by me.
  5. Bloodworth is indeed going to U.S. Cellular Coliseum, circ is 50K and in no way is the news-gazette better than the pantagraph

    This thread is unintentionally hilarious. The Pantagraph calling itself Central Illinois' leading newspaper is quite funny.

    The sports offerings themselves may not be too bad. The community offers Illinois State, which is doing well in I-AA football and isn't too far removed from some good basketball seasons, and Illinois Wesleyan, which has had some good Division III basketball teams.

    The paper has made some strange changes in the last few years, but the managing editor has since left, and things appear to have stabilized (if I can believe the voices from the shadows).

    The community has been on sort of a roller-coaster ride with Bridgestone-Firestone, Mitsubishi (which the Pantagraph royally assfucked with some idiocy a couple of years ago) and the standard clueless corridor development common in communities this size. (Note to planners: You don't need 16 cookie-cutter restaurants in four blocks.)

    There is one part of town I wouldn't walk around in at night without a bulletproof vest, but steer clear of that and you should be OK.

    What does "regional candidate" mean?

    Does another state that has a Big Ten program count?

    Obviously DyePack knows where Veterans Parkway is located. ;D

    Don't we all? Luckily, I've never been in the bad part of B-Town after dark.

    Nothing like sticking a chain restaurant at a corner with no visible entrance or exit.
