Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich wants to sell the entire Illinois lottery -- including the emerging online ticket sales operation -- to fund education for Illinois residents. The plan is generating opposition from expected, and unexpected, quarters, but don't count me among the opponents -- just yet. The state of Illinois, where I've lived for the last 10 years or so, after previously living in Washington, D.C., is in a financial mess, pretty much because of the irresponsible fiscal policies of the incumbent governor.

Illinois will suffer as well with the failure of HB1124. This would have allowed one on one games of skill competition for money or prizes. It may have been able to contribute significantly to the economy in Illinois. A petition has been started online to have the bill reopened or amended.

How will the pandemic influence your holiday shopping habits this year?
I will shop online exclusively, for my own safety and to help limit the spread of the coronavirus.
I will do some shopping online, and some in-person because I want to support merchants in my area.
I will shop online definitely, and I will consider local retailers -- but only if they provide curbside service.
I will only shop in-person because the risks associated with e-commerce outweigh my chance of catching COVID-19.
I will not do any holiday shopping this year due to circumstances related to the pandemic.
