He added, “Nothing that has been reported on in the last couple of days is unethical or illegal.” And instead of questioning the donations, people “really should be talking about an exceptionally qualified Black woman who can make history.”
I’ve been laughing all weekend at the new stealing valor ad from Sullivan. He seems to be running to convince people he was a soldier instead of actually running for governor. Would have been cheaper to just enlist.
I know a grass fire when it’s dry (not like now) can burn fast, what do those small rural towns do that have volunteer fire departments when the fire is too big for them? Is there a state agency that has helicopters that can drop fire dampners?
Actually saw a guy in a full suit when I caught the train this morning (he took the local before my express), can’t think of the last time I have seen a dude in suit and tie on Metra, pre-covid for sure.
Down (40 miles from STL) here much like the other commenter said they call on mutual aid until they get enough trucks and bodies. If the situation warrants they’ll also ask farmers to make a fire line w a Tractor disk etc.
Thanks guys, I was curious. I grew up in Mattoon and I don’t ever remember a fire the city couldn’t handle, but it had maybe 3 fire stations at the time with a hook and ladder and 3 or more other fire vehicles. But Mattoon is a town of 14K (almost 20K back then). Neoga or Toledo are much smaller communities that wouldn’t have that firepower. Then you get down to tiny communities like Humboldt or Jewett.
The tractor makes sense to create firebreaks.
Good to see you back here RNUG. My wife and I got the second booster too. Neither of us had any reaction to the first three shots but ouch, this one hit us us both down for a day or two. I was wondering if others had that same experience.
