    Re: Des Moines #1....Again

    My guess is that this brother in law of yours lives in some place like Aurora, Algonquin or Joliet. The west/northwest/southwest suburb people are insufferable.

    Re: Des Moines #1....Again

    It's in New Trier township in Cook County just north of Evanston (I actually live on the poor side of town so I can walk to NU games). The village is actually spelled "Wilmette" but, in honor of...

    I was going to advise the moderators of the grammatical inaccuracy on the page (the link above says "forums"), but decided to let it go. It is my experience that people don't like so-called "grammar...

    Re: Gazette Article on Season Ticket Sales

    Trying not to deviate from sports here, but I agree. One does not need to set foot on a college campus to make millions in agribusiness. My guess is that once you get past a handful of families with...

    Re: Gazette Article on Season Ticket Sales

    Guys who actually own farmland, yes they are multi-millionaires. I realize that. But the Ha_k fans who one encounters on Interstate 88 outside of Chicago are not farmers or multi-millionaires. I like...

    Re: Gazette Article on Season Ticket Sales

    I actually have a great deal of respect for people who go to schools like Illinois or Iowa State for agricultural pursuits or Oklahoma State for petroleum pursuits. The guy going to Iowa State to...

    Re: Gazette Article on Season Ticket Sales

    Hilarious - is this what Ha_k fans say? They all look like a bunch of farmhands to me, wearing those stupid black and yellow striped coveralls. The drop in ticket sales couldn't have happened to a...

    Re: Des Moines #1....Again

    I am sincerely sorry if you read my writings that way. That is the problem with these written fora, they make it difficult to convey tone. I didn't know about the litany of activities in Des Moines...

    Re: Des Moines #1....Again

    I've apologized where I thought appropriate, but I don't think most of what I posted was anywhere near the realm of what you're describing. But if you think that I have been that way, I apologize to...

    Re: Des Moines #1....Again

    You must be a substantial lightweight or heavily religious if you think a guy with a 0.081 BAC at a ball game is giving his kids a bad childhood. I don't get stumbling drunk or anything, I just like...

    Re: Des Moines #1....Again

    You got me there. The train is slow, but I don't want to get a driving while intoxicated ticket on my return trip. But I guess that isn't an issue for college games since they don't sell beer there....

    Re: Des Moines #1....Again

    Is Ames part of the Des Moines metro? I had always thought it was a ways away, but I can't say I know. The last Iowa State game I saw was a Thursday night game against Oklahoma State.

    Re: Des Moines #1....Again

    I am agreeing with a poster above - if I made $50,000 or even $95,000 per year, I would rather live in Des Moines than Chicago. I can't imagine trying to get by here on $1,000 a week. I would have to...

    Re: Des Moines #1....Again

    Not going to pick apart each of your points, but Chicago's migration rate is driven by two factors. One, the entire Midwest has anemic growth as a whole and this will continue as Baby Boomers retire...

    How much drool did you get on your ACT, friend? I asked about local high schools. Illinois requires the ACT of all students and so a statewide test includes a substantial number of takers in Chicago...

    Re: Des Moines #1....Again

    If you make less than $100k per year, Chicago would be a tougher place to live than Des Moines. I guess that's part of the point of this ranking - people in Des Moines will work for way less money...
