Could corrupt places relocate?

July 16, 2014 

It would sure be nice if Chicago were in anther state and East St. Louis were in another county. These two cities have more crime, political corruption and cronyism than any other two cities in Illinois.

Unfortunately for me, I was born and raised in St. Clair County and here I will stay. Hopefully some day things will change here, but I seriously doubt it.
